Was it our unique Lowcountry setting? Student experience? Exceptional faculty? Or our small class size? Three College of Charleston coeds weigh in on why they feel the College of Charleston earned a spot on PARADE magazine’s College A-List this Fall.
PARADE Magazine’s College A-List included the College as one of the best small public schools in the nation. Recommended by high school counselors, the College was chosen as a school that combines “the communal feel of a small liberal-arts college with the breadth of choice offered by a big university.” “The campus itself is a piece of history located in the heart of Charleston’s historic district, and students studying historic preservation and arts management (Charleston is home to the Spoleto Festival) have a living laboratory at their disposal.” View the full College A-List article.
Paul Bradley, Class of 2013: I’m one of 22 Bonner Leaders (a program that combines scholarship with community service learning in the Charleston community); we’re a small family – that’s why we’re on the list. I would never have gotten that at Morehouse.
Lauren Bridgers, Class of 2011: We made the list for our academics. I have been able to study something I love so much and meet so many people (classmates and faculty) who share my passion for healthy lifestyle. (Lauren is an Exercise Science major with plans to attend MUSC’s accelerated nursing program in January. It is a partnership between the College and MUSC)
Angelina Phebus, Class of 2011: The College opened my eyes to a whole new field I never imagined – archeological research. I spent the summer of my freshman year in Turkey and my sophomore year in Greece. We were recognized for our undergrad research opportunities on campus and abroad.
