Back to school
With its Spanish moss-draped oak trees and beautiful stucco buildings, the College of Charleston
's campus is long on atmosphere and makes a great place for a stroll. Randolph Hall, a magnificent edifice built in 1828 and one of the six college buildings on the register of National Historic Landmarks, has appeared in movies from The Patriot
to Dear John
, and in the Civil War miniseries North and South
. Also of note, the President's House, once the parsonage of St. Philip's Church, is the oldest building on campus.
