we stopped by to do family research, as the South Carolina Historical Society is currently located there while they are renovating. The facilities are very modern, staff is friendly and helpful.

We have been thrilled with the education our daughter has received from CofC. She has had wonderful professors and a fabulous academic advisor (Mr. Litvin). She is a rising Senior this year, sure is bittersweet.
