For STUDENTS: Committed to Charleston (C2C) Spirit Week

Student Alumni Associates will be at events all week collecting early donations for CofC Day. Students donating $5 or more (or pre-registering for “The Big Birthday Bash” on Thursday) will be inducted into the Committed to Charleston Society (C2C) following CofC Day and will receive a commemorative pin, a headshot session in Cistern Yard, and other benefits and recognition. Admissions will leverage the week’s activities by hosting a message board nearby for current students to congratulate accepted students. Marketing will capture video clips of the festivities to share the fun with accepted students.
