The city. Downtown historic Charleston is to die for. As an out of state student, this area makes the long commute totally worth it. Amazing houses, beaches, shopping, food, people... a very rare find.
C of C basically doesn't have much of a campus feel. Our only sports team who plays within walking distance is basketball, which can be popular if they're playing a good team. It's hard to get to meet people outside of classes because everyone's pretty spread out throughout the city. Most people go to bars instead of house parties too, which also makes it difficult to meet people because everyone's all over the place.
Yes, Charleston is the best city I've ever lived in. Most people pick their schools based on looks as opposed to academics (sorry mom and dad), and this school really takes the cake. It might not be the most tightly knit school, but living in Charleston makes it worth it.

I wish I knew After freshman year, most people live off campus which is great because you're not in a dorm, but also can be a hassle dealing with realtors and finding a place to live on your own.
