Erskine College and Seminary was founded in 1839 and it became the first four-year Christian liberal arts college in South Carolina. The school is located in the academic village of Due West, a small town of just 1,200 in an area that is bursting with Revolutionary War and Civil War history, providing many places to visit. Due to this and its annual spring festival, it draws many tourists who like to come and be a part of the cultural and historic heritage.
Even though EC is located in a very small town with a lot of character, it is close to several major cities including Atlanta and Charlotte. There is easy access to both Interstates Route 26 and Route 85 which makes getting to the major cities an easy process.
There are also a lot of lakes and recreational areas available near campus for outdoor gatherings.
