Open House

Saturday, October 19, 2013

During Open House, we open our doors so you can experience CougarNation firsthand.

Everyone is invited! Bring a friend, your parents, your siblings - but not your bulldog (they don't get along with Cougars!).

Event Details

Registration will begin at 9:30 a.m. in TD Arena (301 Meeting Street, 34 on the campus map). We recommend using a public parking garage nearby and walking to the arena. Registration includes our Live the Life fair--an event serving as an opportunity for you to better understand what it means to live the life at the College of Charleston. Representatives from across campus will be available in the Arena's concourse, including Residence Life and Housing, Academic Services, Student Life and more. Light refreshments will be served.

Designed for families to learn more about the College and for students to determine whether the College is a good fit for them, the day's activities will include a presentation from assistant vice president for admissions and enrollment management Jimmie Foster, Jr., program-specific information sessions led by faculty and staff, a campus tour, residence hall viewing and more. Lunch will be on your own so you may choose to eat at one of our campus dining facilities or experience one of Charleston's culinary gems. The day will conclude by 3 p.m.

We encourage you to dress casually and wear comfortable walking shoes! While the weather is almost always gorgeous in Charleston, make sure you pack an umbrella or rain jacket--just in case. In planning your trip, check out Charleston's scene and take advantage! Get a feel for the city you may someday call home.
