Experience Charleston

Charleston is one of the most magical cities in the United States but don’t just take it from us. National magazines consistently rank Charleston one of the top three visitor destinations. And whether you grew up around the block – or are arriving here for the first time – it’s worth considering what it means to earn your degree in this city by the sea.

Charleston has surpassed New Orleans as a top food destination. Creative chefs are conjuring amazing things in everything from food trucks to four-star restaurants. Hungry? You won’t be for long.
You didn’t hear it from us, but we happen to know that many a CHP student exits the last class of the day and heads straight to the wide, white, public sands that surround us.
MUSC is a powerful engine in the local economy, creating on-site jobs and spin-off companies. Our robust medical community offers a great place to launch – or advance – a career.
The CHP campus is just a five minute walk from historic King Street, the city’s main shopping area. Cash-strapped? People watching is free.
Learning about the Revolutionary War is one thing. Standing in a place where a battle raged, is another. Charleston has been front-and-center for many of this country’s major events, and living here makes those long-ago lectures come alive!
