Charleston Southern University

If you haven’t been on campus in the last few years, you may be in for a surprise.


The transformation and growth of the campus itself has captured the attention of students, alumni and the public. Charleston Southern was recognized as one of the 50 Most Beautiful Christian Colleges and Universities, according to Christian Universities Online.

Over the last several years, the area around the Reflection Pond has been transformed with the opening of the Science Building, the Whitfield Center for Christian Leadership, Chick-fil-A Express and Java City, the expansion of the Dining Hall and renovations to the original classroom buildings, residence halls and the library.

The programs of the Whitfield Center for Christian Leadership bring visitors to the campus through workshops, conferences and partnership programs such as the Cradle to Career Collaborative, the South Carolina Christian Chamber of Commerce, the Association of Christians in the Mathematical Sciences, God in the Workplace, 1Charleston and more.  The university also conducts annual programs and conferences such as The Lens, Endure and the Student Leadership Academy.

Current projects on campus include construction of the Singleton Baseball Complex, the Health Sciences building, the Athletic Performance Center and the communications technology building.

It may be time for you to visit campus to see the transformation for yourself.

CSU is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) and is affiliated with the South Carolina Baptist Convention.
