I am a college student, who attends University of Maryland. As soon as I graduate my hope is to move to Mount Pleasant. My problems are
1. What is there for a Public and COmmunity Health / Art Studio Major to do in Mount Pleasant?
2. My boyfriend does not want to live in the South at all, he believes it to be rednecky, yet I have been trying to tell him that it's not around Charleston. But we also like the slow paced life
3. Crime- I live in Maryland, right in between Baltimore, and DC. Thus, I am tired of crime, and illegal immigration everywhere. Is this a problem around Mount Pleasant/ Charleston area?
4. This sounds stupid- but I hate snakes.. are there alot?
5.I would enjoy a big house with a huge backyard that if I do have children, they could play in. But I also don't want to be far from a city. So is Mt Pleasant a good choice for this?

If you have any other words of advice I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks!

1. There is plenty to do. Charleston is an artsy city, very close to the beach, and during the summer has about 75% of the college students in South Carolina. It has great nightlife year-round, and lots to see and do. The hard part is finding a job.

2. Maybe you should leave him at home. If he doesn't want to live here, we sure don't want him to. But yeah, there are rednecks in South Carolina.

3. I think you'll have the same issues with crime and immigration. I wouldn't call Charleston "dangerous", but it's not exactly safe, either. Mt. Pleasant is safer, pretty middle-class. Property values are rising quickly, though.

4. I hate snakes too. Really hate them. The south has plenty of snakes, more than Maryland would. But I don't think Charleston would have any more than any other area of the south.

5. Yes, that is a good choice, but the Charleston area is expensive. You'll pay for it.
