Don’t be scared to show off your College of Charleston spirit this Halloween. Allow us to treat you to a fool-proof method for carving one of our university logos into your very own pumpkin.


President Glenn McConnell carves a pumpkin.

The trick is to use a template (choose from the options below) to mark your carving lines before your start cutting.

For inspiration, watch the College’s very own pumpkin-carver-in-residence, Ale Torres, share his expertise with three celebrity students – President Glenn McConnell, who swears to have no previous pumpkin-carving experience, Student Government Association President Michael Faikes and the one and only Clyde the Cougar.

For step-by-step instructions, read this story on The College Today. Instructions are also included on the templates below.

Once you’re done carving, share your creations with us on social media using #CougarCarves. We’ll pick a few favorites and reward them with a treat.

Happy Halloween!
