The College of Charleston is one of the nation’s best institutions for undergraduate students according to The Princeton Review. The education services company profiles and recommends CofC in the new edition of its annual college guide, The Best 388 Colleges: 2023 Edition.

According to The Princeton Review, “The College of Charleston provides its 10,000 undergraduates a mid-sized liberal arts experience within the boundaries of one of the south’s most thriving cities. Good academic advising, a strong focus on writing skills and interdisciplinary studies, and a reputable business program are just some of the school’s many perks, and many classes incorporate non-traditional types of learning such as lots of field work and field trips around the city.”

Along with being named one of the Best Colleges in the Southeast, the College of Charleston was also recognized in the categories of Colleges That Create Futures and Green Colleges.

Additionally, The Princeton Review rankings recognized the College in the following categories:

  • No. 17 The Best College Cities
  • No. 17 Everyone Plays Intramural Sports
  • No. 25 Most Active Student Government

“This is a small school with large school energy and everyone at the CofC is welcoming to new students and freshmen,” The Princeton Review continues.  “People are always willing to help each other out and general class culture is very positive and uplifting.”

The Princeton Review chose colleges for the book based on data it annually collects from surveys of 2,000 college administrators about their institutions’ academic offerings. For its selection of profiled schools for the book, the company also reviews data from its surveys of college students attending the schools. Only about 14% of America’s 2,700 four-year colleges are profiled in the publication.

This is the 19th consecutive year The Princeton Review has recognized the College in its annual rankings.
