Why 'Beaufort College' Honors?

The legacy of Beaufort College to the region and USCB is extensive and deep-rooted. Beaufort College was an elite school. In the 1800’s, "It became a feeder institution for the South Carolina College and the elite colleges of the North, including Harvard, Princeton, Yale, and Columbia. Twenty-five young men who attended preparatory school here went on to Harvard College." (Walter Edgar, "Celebrating Higher Education in Beaufort, 1795-2010," Virtue, Liberty, Science, p. 47).

And, Beaufort has been named One of the Best College Towns in the U.S.!
