Wofford College, established in 1854 and related to the United Methodist Church, is a selective, independent, liberal arts college of 1,525 students located in downtown Spartanburg, South Carolina, United States. The historic 175-acre (71 ha) campus is recognized as a national arboretum and is one of the few four-year institutions in the southeastern United States founded before the American Civil War that still operates on its original campus. The College features The Village, which provides distinctive apartment-style housing for seniors, and is listed on the Presidents Community Service Honor Roll and in the annual Open Doors report for providing studies abroad opportunities for its students. Wofford was founded with a bequest of $100,000 from the Rev. Benjamin Wofford (-), a Methodist minister and Spartanburg native who sought to create a college for 'literary, classical, and scientific education in my native district of Spartanburg.'
