Couldn't be more proud to be a College of Charleston alumni '04! Not only is it a beautiful campus, but the education is one of the best! As a small business owner, I feel CofC has well prepared me for my business ventures.

My daughter and friends are about to graduate and I cannot believe the four years have passed so wonderfully. To paraphrase an earlier reviewer, the best school and the best city in the world in which to have gone to college. College of Charleston, an amazing place! Thank you!

I don't know where I would be today if not for my CofC experience. I wouldn't trade it for anything.
