Best Unneeded Satellite Campus

Francis Marion University — Mt. Pleasant

Staff Pick

When you think of the state's top universities, Francis Marion University doesn't exactly come to mind. It's a fine school, but it's not of the same caliber as Clemson, University of South Carolina, CofC, or the Citadel. Which is why it's quite strange that former Mt. Pleasant Mayor Billy Swails is all sex nuts over building a Francis Marion satellite campus somewhere in Mt. P. Now, according to Swails, the school is a must because, well, there's no reason that Wando grads should have to brave traveling over the Cooper River to go to one of two schools a short drive from home — and that's not even counting Charleston Southern just up the road. It's a silly argument. Like insanely stupid. Which is why we wonder if Swails has an ulterior motive. We have no idea what that might be, but we wouldn't be surprised if Swails already had a site picked out.
