Voorhees College, founded in Denmark, South Carolina in 1897, is a private, career-oriented, liberal arts Historically Black College affiliated with the Episcopal Church. Originally modeled after Tuskegee Institute, Voorhees offers degrees in 12 disciplines to more 600 students living on and around the 300 acre, historic campus. The campus is split into two distinct sides: academic circle with classroom buildings, administration offices, and Greek organization plots, and another side centered on the yard with stage in the center and outlined with residence halls.
The campus has vibrant Greek plots adorning the academic side of the campus. Additionally, from the gym hosting the VC men’s and women’s NAIA division one basketball programs to the dozens of student organizations housed in the Wilkinson Building, students at Voorhees have multiple ways to enhance their development with co-curricular activities.
