We walked to the college from our hotel (French Quarter Inn) and enjoyed many sights along the way. The college is a very picturesque campus, just the way that you would expect a small southern college to be.
Unfortunately someone prevailed upon the college to replace the gas in the gas lanterns with CFL's which make the pretty gas lanterns look ugly and bulky within the lanterns and unattractive at night. Too bad.

Went a little further inside College of Charleston this visit. Before had only seen the historic buildings from the outside, but attended an event in one of the gardens and was so awed at the beauty of this college. I can only give insight as to the historic loveliness of the institution. What a privilege it would be to attend here and walk in this historic city to class everyday.

You may have seen bits of it in a movie or two, but to appreciate the incredible, distinctive beauty of this college, you have to walk around It almost looks like a Hollywood designed set

We've been on many campuses across the country but have never seen anything as unique and charming as this one! Really lovely. It is worth thirty minutes to stroll through campus.
