Need some questions answered by our ResLife staff? Here's where you can find us during each College of Charleston New Student Orientation session!

We're throwing it back to 2006-2007 this week! The Rivers staff had an incredible relationship with each other and their residents and it shows in our archived photos. Do you even CofC if you haven't gotten the obligatory picture with Clyde in Cougar Mall?!

If you're an alum- don't forget to add your name to our alumni directory that will assist with employment and networking opportunities among like-minded individuals.
