College of Charleston Koi Pond Offers an Escape from Studying Blues

By Mark A. Leon

One must not look far to find the historic quaint landscape of the College of Charleston. From its brick to its flowers, the college offers a sculpted architectural and floral experience.

Most know of the Cistern Yard, gated entrance guarded by the famous cougar, Mace Brown Natural History Museum, Addlestone Library, Halsey Art Institute and historically significant preserved buildings, but hidden just behind the student center is an exotic place.

This is a place of wonder, peace and comfort. The College of Charleston koi fish pond is a true escape from the trials of studying and exams. Whether you are a student, parent or visitor, take time to sit by the pond, on the lawn or rest on a table. Smell the flowers, gaze at the turtles and fish or just daydream the afternoon away.

The koi pond is one of many reasons the College of Charleston is the seamless blend of academia, history and natural beauty.
