Me and 2 friends are moving to Charleston from Boston. We are looking to get jobs at a bar/restaurant then party and have a good time. We dont need a gated community but aren't lookin to slum it. Where do the college students live? Where's a good area for us to come rip it up?

Your best bet is an apartment on the peninsula or an apartment on James Island. Most undergrads live downtown on the peninsula...around King, Meeting, and Coming St. (Around Vanderhorst is the furthest north that I would go on these streets.) Downtown is your best bet for being able to go to bars, etc. and walking home.) A lot of grad students live out on James Island to be closer to Folly Beach. Its a very relaxed community with a younger crowd. Probably safer than living downtown.

Hampton Park will work just fine.
Due to your goal to rip it up, I would live as close to downtown as economically feasible because of that laborious 2am commute...

From a 20-something year olds perspective... either Downtown, Mt. Pleasant, or Folly Beach to work/live. Folly is the most laid back (even though the most of the entire Charleston area is) and probably cheapest area to live out of the three. Mt. Pleasant you will be able to find work and an apartment complex to live with more of an access to night life. Also try to look into Shem Creek for some jobs if you are living in Mt Pleasant. Downtown will be hard to get an apartment, as they go very quick; but it's the best place to work if you're looking into the restaurant industry.
Good luck with the move!
