Por favor, permita dos horas para su visita. Para reservar su espacio, por favor llene el impreso o llame a Ambar M. Jackson, 843.953.7508.

Students whose first language is Spanish do not visit campus as often as their English-speaking peers. But, Admissions Counselor Ambar M. Jackson is fluent in Spanish and is available to speak with students, parents, and other family members interested in more information about the College.

“Students from diverse backgrounds are so important to the College and we understand that it can be very daunting to go through the admissions process when there is a difficulty in communicating,” says Mackenzie Chasteen, senior associate director for admissions. “It is important the lines of communication are open not just for the prospective student, but also for his/her family. Families are the biggest influencer in a student’s decision about applying and attending college and we want to make sure families receive all the information about our campus in the most familiar language possible.”
