The summer 2021 issue of College of Charleston Magazine is just arriving throughout campus, in homes across the country and around the globe.

The diverse collection of stories includes a 50th anniversary tribute to the College’s first Black graduate, Eddie Ganaway ’71; a 30-question quiz to test your knowledge of the College; and a unique take on what it was like to be a student at CofC during the pandemic.

And of course, there are profiles of interesting students, faculty and alumni who are making an impact. All of the current stories and stories from past issues are also available online.

Here are the feature stories from the new issue:

Game Changer
Growing up in a gang-infested part of Los Angeles, Jermaine Johnson ’09 just wanted to live long enough to turn 18, but thanks to basketball talent and the kindness of others, he’s doing a lot more than just surviving these days as a South Carolina state representative.
