Hartsville is a progressive and thriving community of 7,800 people in the heart of Darlington County. The downtown area is a short walk from campus, and it is where Govies go to relax, shop, attend church, grab a meal or watch a movie.

Hartsville is the international headquarters for Sonoco Products Company, South Carolina's largest home-based corporation; Coker College, a comprehensive college offering bachelors and masters degrees; Carolina Pines Regional Medical Center, a 116 bed acute care facility, and many other organizations that bring vitality and energy to this unique community.
