A Great Destination
Erskine College located in the historic town of Due West, in Abbeville County, South Carolina. With a town population of 1,200 and a beautiful 90-acre campus housing a student body of just under 600, Due West is a quiet college town, perfect for study.
From sports to the arts, there’s a lot to do on the Erskine campus, but within only a 30-minute drive you’ll find plenty of shopping, historical sites, and a number of recreational areas that offer boating, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, and mountain biking.
Within an hour’s drive, the Greenville-Spartanburg area offers a flourishing arts and culture scene with ethnic restaurants, concert and theatre venues, an annual arts festival, and an international airport for visits home or to study abroad.
And within three hours of campus are major metropolitan areas like Atlanta, Georgia, and Charlotte, North Carolina, as well as Asheville, North Carolina, home to a thriving arts community.
A Close-Knit Community
At Erskine, our difference starts with our size. You can do things here you just can’t do at larger schools. Like walk two minutes to class, know the names of all your classmates, or receive individual attention from your professors.
As a Christian liberal arts college, we educate students for careers, but more importantly, we prepare you for your life’s calling. We’re committed to equipping students as whole persons – intellectually, physically, and spiritually — to make a positive impact on their families and communities, their nation, and the world.
Small classes support student interaction and intellectual development. Erskine encourages person-to-person communication to maximize student learning. In fact, a primary focus at Erskine is on personal interaction that leads to lasting friendships and discovery within a community of engaged learners. Many professors even invite students into their homes, forming significant and lifelong friendships.
