Although big industry is changing South Carolina's standing as a mainly agricultural state, its population is still generally rural—and conservative. Several major corporations have built plants in recent years; the attendant influx of upper middle-class families has created pockets of comparative wealth. Despite these new population clusters, however, the state's educational standards reflect a "small-town" ethos, particularly at the secondary level. Most of South Carolina's liberal arts colleges are located around its more densely populated cities: Columbia (the state capital, located in the center of the state; population approximately 114,000); Greenville (in the northwest corner, population approximately 62,000) and Charleston (on the eastern seaboard, population approximately 67,000).
