The College of Charleston’s School of Humanities and Social Sciences is striking out in bold

The College of Charleston’s School of Humanities and Social Sciences is striking out in bold new directions and creating new learning models to educate students with transferable skills that prepare them for today’s job market. At the same time, our students graduate with a strong sense of social and civic responsibility. They go on to be agents of change in their workplaces and communities.

A hallmark of all our academic programs is experiential learning, inside and outside of the classroom, through internships, faculty–student research collaborations, international experiences, and mentorship programs. This distinction has put the College on a path to national prominence.

Become part of CofC’s campus-wide reading program, The College Reads!, and connect with students, faculty, and staff! Throughout the year our community will engage with the themes of the selected book through a variety of lectures, discussions, movies, and other co-curricular events. The 2015-2016 The College Reads! book selection is Freedom Summer: The Savage Season of 1964 That Made Mississippi Burn and Made America a Democracy by Bruce Watson (2010).  We encourage you to pick up a copy and follow along!

Over the summer, all incoming students received a copy of the selected book. At Convocation on Monday, August 24th, students had their first opportunity to engage in conversation with peers, faculty, and staff members about the questions, themes, comments, and reactions to Freedom Summer.

Through out the year The College has lined up various community events that highlight the themes of Freedom Summer. Most notably, you are invited to join students, faculty, and other Society members on November 9, 2015, when Mr. Watson will be on campus to deliver a public lecture at 7:00 PM in Sottile Theatre. Click here for the comprehensive schedule and to learn more about The College Reads! events on campus.

The College strives to offer many ways to participate in The College Reads! program. From interactive reading guides, to videos, to on-campus lectures, we invite you to join the conversation and learn more about Freedom Summer and The College Reads!

#CougarWelcome

On August 20th and 21st, the CofC alumni community came together in an unprecedented way

On August 20th and 21st, the CofC alumni community came together in an unprecedented way to welcome the class of 2019! #CougarWelcome was launched with a goal of securing 360 donors in 36 hours. Cougar Nation responded to the call and reached the #CougarWelcome goal with just 2 minutes to spare on Friday evening, which was then surpassed for a total of 370 donors!

The purpose of #CougarWelcome was two-fold:

  • Give a warm welcome to our incoming class of 2019, our parents, and our returning students by bringing together our campus community.
  • Engage our alumni base in this activity with a 36-hour giving day as a kick-off to alumni participation in the final year of Boundless: The Campaign for the College of Charleston. 

This initiative truly showed how every gift can make an impact. Thank you to all of our donors who came together on August 20-21st to make this possible. To catch up on all of the action from last week, visit College of Charleston Alumni Facebook page.
