city like it
In the heart of the Lowcountry, Charleston has it all – great food, beautiful beaches and a booming economy.

Our vision: To be a Christian university nationally recognized for integrating faith in learning, leading and serving.
Build new skills, professional contacts and your resume through internships in CSU's ELI program.

There’s no better time to take your first step with CSU.
