With a little over 10,000 undergraduates, Charleston is the 13th oldest college in the nation.  Despite being a public university, it has the feel of a small private college but with the advantages of a mid-sized university.  The atmosphere is creative and intellectual with committed and caring faculty members. They have many different and unusual offerings, including programs like art and computing, historic preservation, arts management, & discovery informatics (lots of research available to this major). The film studies majors get involved with the film production opportunities in Charleston, such as with Lifetime's Army Wives or with indie films like Dear John.

In 2011 there will be a new First Year Experience Program for students where they all live in a learning community centered on four different themes.  Undergraduate research is very important and they feel there are many unique ways students can work closely with faculty.

Charleston has many options to study abroad, from their own campuses in Chili, France, Argentina and Spain to offering bilateral trades with international students to study in their home universities.  Charleston is one of the few colleges in the U.S. that has a residential campus in Cuba, which is an incredibly rich experience for students. 

C of C sits in the middle of the historic Charleston downtown, with everything available within a one block radius. Housing is guaranteed all four years with freshmen living in suite style housing (2 rooms and a shared bath).  C of C has a very active and rich campus life, with more than 175 clubs.  They have Division I sports and basketball is huge with a new arena.  The campus is full of traditions including Cougarpalooza, Cosmic Bowling, midnight breakfast and outings to Foley Beach (Atlantic Ocean) and biking along the Cooper River Bridge.
