Wofford College

Spartanburg, SCwww.wofford.edu
A small liberal arts school in South Carolina's major college town of Spartanburg, Wofford College is noteworthy for the personal attention it gives its roughly 1,700 students. Most of its classes have less than 20 students. Biology, finance, and other business majors are popular here, and many students take advantage of Wofford's strong commitment to international studies. The school provides numerous opportunities to take classes and participate in internships abroad. It also offers merit scholarships for international study, and even pays for students' passport applications. Spartanburg is the site of rich Revolutionary War history and the home of six colleges, including a satellite campus of the University of South Carolina. Despite Wofford's emphasis on far-flung studies, there's plenty to do on campus, where most students live in dorms for the duration of their college years. Greek life is also big, with many students rushing one of the many chapters of fraternities and sororities. Athletics are another key component of the Wofford experience. Fans cheer for the Terriers, who compete in Division I football, baseball, men's basketball, and men's soccer.
