I personally did not have a good experience with College of Charleston when it comes to the staff, classes, and how things were ran. The students are great, the campus is beautiful, and there is a lot to do in Charleston.

The staff at the college treats you like you are just another number in line. Forget about getting anything done (doing paperwork, setting up financial aid, getting a hold of who you need to talk to, etc.) because when it comes to doing all the dirty work you are ALWAYS missing something with them. I can't even tell you how many times I had to go from class to office to home to office BACK home just to go back to the office to do one simple task. No one there seems to know what they are doing, or even who to talk to, to help you. Of my 2 years I spent there, I spent WAY WAY WAY to much time just trying to figure out basic information that any other basic college offers with a click of a mouse. They change their website so often that I feel like every other month I was remaking a user ID, or signing up for a new program they were trying out. It's very frustrating as as student to try and study and balance everything AND learn a new poorly made website every other month (half the time the logins wouldn't even work and you would have to call for help, but they didn't know what to do either!!)

Needless to say I went to a community college for 2 years before College of Charleston and I would recomend the community college WAAAAY over College of Charleston. I wish I could get the HUGE amount of money I spent on this CRAP of a college back!
