From a chamber music camp to a geology summer research trip to a project about space exploration, the summer months stay busy at the College of Charleston.

When it comes to space exploration, today’s middle and elementary school students may be more familiar with Buzz Lightyear than with Buzz Aldrin. CofC geology professor Cassandra Runyon wants to change that. (Photos by Heather Moran)


The Office of Institutional Diversity is spearheading a new documentary titled “If These Walls Could Talk” that explores how enslaved Africans contributed to the construction of College buildings. (Photos by Heather Moran)
