On-Campus and Virtual Events for Prospective Students & Families

On-campus and virtual events are designed to give you a sense of what life is like at the College of Charleston.

  • Professors are on hand to walk you through the classroom experience and the opportunities you’ll have to learn from some of the most accomplished in their fields.
  • Students share their perspectives on life inside the classroom, on campus and in the city.
  • Even our president shows up periodically!

You’ll want to attend as many events as you can so you can take in the full range of opportunities you’ll have at the College. If you can’t attend a live event, you can watch the recorded event whenever your schedule permits.
