College of Charleston

The College of Charleston is unlike any other university. Here, we’ve built a culture that celebrates the power of diverse thought. Here, different and unique perspectives unite to shape a brighter, better future for our students. As a nationally recognized, public liberal arts and sciences university, hands-on learning experiences are at the forefront. A personalized education means professors are always willing to serve as mentors. Our stellar location in the heart of downtown Charleston means the city is a part of campus. With such a vibrant student life and so many quality academic programs, the College of Charleston is truly one of the nation’s great public universities.

Many resources are available at the College of Charleston that promote well-being through social involvement, academic support, and clinical services. The newly created Office of Student Wellness and Well-being aims to help improve the quality of life for all students and provide resources for the various dimensions of wellness. The Office of the Dean of Students coordinates with various offices on campus to serve as a resource for a student that needs assistance through making referrals, helping students address housing and food insecurity, as well as offering emergency funding for students. In addition, the campus-wide Student of Concern committee uses both prevention and threat assessment practices to assist students. The overall division of Student Affairs is dedicated to providing services in order to create and maintain a healthy, civil and safe campus and reduce student participation in high-risk behaviors.

The Citadel, located in Charleston, South Carolina, offers a classic military college education for young men and women focused on leadership excellence and academic distinction.

Citadel alumni have served the nation, their states and their communities as principled leaders since 1842. The Citadel Graduate College, founded more than 50 years ago, offers dozens of graduate degree, graduate certificate and evening undergraduate programs in the evening or online. Consecutively named Best Public College in the South by U.S. News & World Report for 12 years and No. 1 Best Public College for Veterans in the South for five years.
