Dear Campus Community,

I want to take this opportunity to welcome you to the start of another exciting academic year at the College of Charleston.

While the campus is buzzing with activity with the start of classes, I can tell you that it was certainly busy this summer in preparation for the school year. I want to thank all of the staff and faculty for all of their hard work in readying everything in preparation for the beginning of this semester. It has been an all-hands-on-deck mentality, and I am proud of how we, together, are positioned for this upcoming year.

The College of Charleston is a “hot” school – and that has little to do with the late-summer temperatures. Our reputation as a top school for academics, for athletics success and for quality of life is putting us on the national stage, a place we certainly belong.

I wish you all the best of success inside and outside of the classroom as we work to ensure that extraordinary happens here.



Andrew T. Hsu, Ph.D.
