The College of Charleston had another amazing year of breakthroughs, discoveries, milestones and celebrations in 2017.
Here, in no particular order, are but a few of the high points and special moments from the past year:
…highlighted the professional achievements of our alumni, including the 2017 Alumni Award recipients, a musician who created an app aimed at connecting venues and artists, an eco-friendly businessman who sees aquaculture as the solution to a hungry planet and a globe-trotting alumna studying in Germany through a prestigious fellowship.
…cheered on the men’s basketball team as they made their first National Invitation Tournament appearance in six years and cheered the CofC volleyball team when they made history by earning the first-ever at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament.
…highlighted the smarts and creativity of our students, including a math major who already has a job thanks to a scholarship through the Department of Defense, a talented student-composer and an astrophysics major who’s reaching for the stars.
…smiled when Travel + Leisure confirmed what we already knew, that CofC is the country’s most beautiful campus.
…and we sprinkled a little holiday magic over Cistern Yard.
Here’s to all we will accomplish together in 2018. Cheers!
