Just a quick post to let you know about the annual Stuart M. Williams Impact Hour at CofC. This year our virtual hour of Impact will focus on how and why the work done by In Place Impact in Charleston will help us rebuild our economy, support existing businesses, create new business, and thus jobs, all while helping our neighbors who need it the most.

Join us this Thursday evening at 5 pm - it's free, and we have a great panel of Impact Entrepreneurs and Investors discussing real opportunities and solutions. Charleston knows how to "Make A Profit While Making A Difference".

Going through some old boxes and came across these gems from my freshman year! 🐾
Hi alumni! I’m heading to Charleston for a night at the end of September. Does anyone know of a place to rent one Friday night (9/25) on Sullivan’s Island, Folly, or right downtown? Not looking for a hotel but the VRBO and Airbnb listings were minimal. Thanks!

Hey Cougars, a fellow alumna needs help. Marilane Carter went missing over a week ago on her way from Overland Park, KS to Birmingham,AL. If you see her, please help her! She may be running away from something or someone but is definitely in a bad situation. Here’s the page her family set up to share updates: Find Marilane.
Please support our new book released today. It is the first in our children's series on health, safety, and hope. CofC class of 1999.

PROTECT YOUR SAVINGS; MEET EXPENSES; LEAVE A FINANCIAL LEGACY
The Debt Free Life program is a life insurance product with a built-in cash value savings component that is designed to help you pay off debt on a schedule that works for you. In nine years or less, you’ll be completely debt free without spending any more money than you’re currently spending. This program is a great option for women who are business owners, have a growing family, or for those who would like to start paying off debts from student loans, medical bills, etc.
If interested in hearing more please reach out, thanks .. Gwendolyn McCullough, Insurance Broker … class of ’85.
We've come so far, yet this man was still allowed to become the President of CofC.

We can do better and we cannot let this happen.

PETITION: It’s time to Hold CofC Accountable for Confederate Sympathizer, Glenn McConnell, as President!

Read, Sign, & Share the petition below and please share with as many members of the College of Charleston Community that you can! If you can commit to finding at least 10 other signers, I am sure that the College of Charleston will hear our voices and demands.

The petition is sponsored by CofC Action Now and Black Alumni Network

Representing the College of Charleston on National Fishing Day.
A lot of people have vision but lack focus. They are busy looking while opportunities close to them is fading away, BTC is rising and a lot of people are still docile, let me show you how you can make $5000 in less than two days. Inbox me for details.
If you received the statement from President Hsu today, I urge you to reply and demand clear actionable steps to be announced asap. Here are some ideas/questions I posed in my reply.

1. What anti-racism courses will be required for students to graduate moving forward? Not just a diversity day or week with workshops.
2. What scholarship funds are being launched?
3. What Black professors are you promoting and hiring?
4. What resources are you providing Black student organizations?
5. What review board is being put in place to look at the entire campus ecosystem from housing to course curriculum?
6. With all the fundraising being done for the 250th anniversary, if you really wanted to make a statement for progress, put a significant portion towards supporting your racial justice endeavors like ones I've mentioned here.
7. End any association with the Charleston police force like the University of Minnesota did.
Happy Birthday, Tony.
