American College Towns: Columbia, SC By Michael Korfhage, Joel Anderson, 2014
- American College Towns: Columbia, SC
Columbia, South Carolina, second largest city in the state, is home to the University of South Carolina, a major center for higher education in the American Southeast. This university is also one of the oldest universities in the United States, originally founded in 1801. In fact, the original building that served as the university’s first structure still stands to this day, having been preserved for over two centuries. Lovers of history and brilliant architecture, ADG added Columbia to our mini-series of American College Towns. This vintage American Travel poster can serve as a beautiful, handmade keepsake from a trip to the university and town, or it can be a great way to show one’s local pride as college alumni or Columbia residents. To learn more about what the city has to offer, check out the Columbia Metropolitan Convention & Visitors Bureau.
