Youngest Student

Research shows that children greatly benefit from receiving education before kindergarten. During early childhood, the human brain develops the majority of its neurons and is most receptive to learning. For example, children often have an easier time picking up a second language than adults. This is because the neurons in their brains are actively creating new connections that allow them to retain information so well. This growth primarily happens within the first two years...

Columbia is one of only five American cities that is home to both the state capital and the state university. Toss in a pinch of Southern charm (and cuisine), plus the nation’s largest U.S. Army training facility in nearby Fort Jackson, and you have a lively stew of ideas, commerce, and innovation.

Columbia has always drawn its influences from the coastal Lowcountry and the Blue Ridge Mountains of the Upcountry to create South Carolina’s...
