Open House

During Open House, you will experience CougarNation firsthand. Fall 2014 Open House will be held October 25. 

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

Event Details

Event check-in will begin at 9:30 a.m. at Cougar Mall (the walkway between 24 and 26 on the campus map). Look for the statue of Clyde! Plan for a full day on campus. The event will wrap up around 3:30 p.m.

Use these simple driving directions to find your way to the heart of campus. Event parking will be available at a reduced rate of $5 for the day in the St. Philip Street garage only. The St. Philip Street garage is located at 81 St. Philip Street, a five minute walk from registration. (Other parking garages around campus will not honor the $5 parking rate, so be sure to use the St. Philip Street garage). Admissions staff will provide you with a parking voucher during registration which you may use to exit the St. Philip Street garage. 

Also, we have a few visit tips to help you make the most of it. Be sure to contact with any questions or concerns. 

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.
