The Winter 2023 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 philosophy professor who’s rewriting herstory, a student who has hit the big time with her small business and a preview of the opening of the International African American Museum by one of our own who helped make it happen.
The magazine is filled with interesting stories about students, faculty and alumni worth knowing about. All of the current stories (and ones from past issues) are available online.
Here are the feature stories from the new issue:
