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.

Denmark Technical College, boasting over 1,800 students as of Fall 2013, has an enrollment and employee population that would make up 2 out of every five citizens in the city of Denmark, South Carolina. Denmark Tech impressively utilizes 53 acres of land to accommodate its growing student body in 18 buildings including facilities for on-campus living, inter-collegiate athletics programs, technology centers, labs, shops, administration, and students services. Denmark Tech is a public, two-year comprehensive institution which, as the name suggests, specializes in preparing people for careers in technical fields. Half of Denmark Tech’s students are of the age of twenty-five and over, and 97 percent of the student body identifies as Black and/or African American. Located 50 miles from the state’s capital of Columbia, 50 miles from Augusta, Georgia, a few miles from fellow South Carolina HBCUs Claflin and South Carolina State, and literally across a fence from Historically Black Voorhees College, Denmark Technical College is well-located to host a growing student body and help interested students transfer to quality bachelor’s degree-granting institutions. As a result, Denmark Tech reported awarding 500 degrees and certificates in the 2012-2013 academic term. In short, Denmark Tech is a place “Where great things are happening.”
