About me:

I chose College of Charleston because my sister completed her undergraduate degree at the College of Charleston, and when I decided to transfer after my freshman year, I knew I was going to go to the College of Charleston. I knew how much Charleston had to offer, so it was an easy decision. I am so happy I chose College of Charleston as it has become a second home to me, and wherever I will go in the future I will always think back to my experience with only positive thoughts.

About me:

One of the main reasons why I chose the College of Charleston was the atmosphere of Charleston. The city really reminds me of Europe, and the people are always happy.
