Spartanburg has the highest per capita college student population of any major city in South Carolina. With its seven diverse institutions of higher education, Spartanburg is South Carolina's “College Town.”
Initiated by former Mayor Bill Barnet, the consortium of six institutions of higher education, known as “The Colleges of Spartanburg," includes Converse College, Sherman College of Straight Chiropractic, Spartanburg Methodist College, Spartanburg Community College, University of South Carolina Upstate and Wofford College.
The goals of this not-for-profit consortium are to:
Founded in 2003, College Town's first official event was the South Carolina Humanities Festival held on the campuses. Other joint services projects, like the Day of Service, were a success and plans for other events, such as a leadership summit and intramural sports activities are underway.
