Thank you for your interest in the College of Charleston – the best college in the United States for Jewish students!

Hillel at the College of Charleston is part of the Yaschik/Arnold Jewish Studies Program, a unique arrangement that places everything related to Jewish life on campus, including community outreach and academics, under one roof – and literally so:

We operate from a 20,000 sq. ft. building on the corner of Wentworth and Glebe streets, in the heart of campus and historical downtown Charleston.

Every year, hundreds of Jewish students from all over the country choose the excellent academics, safe environment, and gorgeous setting, and enroll at the College of Charleston. Most of them, whether they major in business, psychology, or education, take part in our Hillel programming.
