Summer Preview

Summer Preview serves rising seniors and will be held August 8. Register today!

Before you hit "submit" on your application, we invite you to hear firsthand from our esteemed faculty, current students, proud alumnae and devoted staff. Learn why the College of Charleston should be the top liberal arts university you apply to this fall! Summer Preview will give you the chance to get tricks of the trade to make your application stand out to our admissions committee, tour our historic campus and experience the modern modifications that make learning opportunities boundless at the College. Plus, you’ll spend the day in the No. 1 city in the U.S.! 

Event Details

You'll be able to check-in from 10:30-11:00 a.m. in the Cistern Yard (the quad area in front of Randolph Hall, No. 42 on the campus map, just across the street from the Office of Admissions). Plan for a full day on campus. The event will wrap up before 4:00 p.m.

Use these simple driving directions to find your way to the heart of campus. 

Also, we have a few visit tips to help you make the most of it. Be sure to contact admissions@cofc.edu with any questions or concerns. 


Designed for families to learn more about the College and for students to determine whether the College is a good fit for them, the day's activities will include admission information, a campus tour, residence hall viewing and more. 

We encourage you to dress casually and wear comfortable walking shoes! While the weather is almost always gorgeous in Charleston, make sure you pack an umbrella or rain jacket--just in case. In planning your trip, check out Charleston's scene and take advantage! Get a feel for the city you may someday call home.
