I wanted to send my appreciation to the Move-In volunteers at Warren today. I was planning to help my daughter move in today and I threw out my back yesterday. I can barely move myself around much less move stuff today.

Since I'm a single mom, she was just going to forge ahead and do it by herself. She's a tiny little girl, but determined. But, I was apprehensive about how it would go. Fortunately, she rain-proofed and marked everything with her name and room number.

She parked and came back and everything was gone. Some kind volunteers had taken everything up to her third-floor dorm space!

THANK YOU so much! We both really so appreciated that kindness. You're very special people #CougarMoveIn
I have a twin dorm bed frame for sale. $100 (less than half of what they cost new!). The unit allows students to raise their mattress so they can use space underneath for other things (furniture, desk storage etc.) Please contact me at [email protected] for more information...
Help! Can dorm beds in Buist Rivers be lofted? If so, what is the recommended height? (we can't find the ceiling heights anywhere)

We'd like to send out congratulations and thanks to Grayson Nix (@gnix18) for being selected as "RA of the month". Follow along in our IG stories today where Grayson is taking over our account to give a glimpse into a day in the life of a @CofCMcAlister RA!

Grayson's nomination read:

"It is my pleasure to recommend Grayson Nix for the RA of the Month Award. Grayson has also been an educator for the new and returning RAs, who come to Grayson whenever in doubt. Grayson is always willing and eager to help, no matter if he is on-call, on-campus or no matter the circumstance- because he is just that person that goes out of their way to serve others. He has continuously helped staff grow into better professionals, better Resident Assistants as well as better individuals. Grayson always puts his heart and soul into our staff being the best version of themselves for our residents. Moreover, his technological skills have greatly impacted our community as he was able to fix all the electrics prior to having to call maintenance. Grayson has been always willing to come down to the desk in the middle of the night, just to help the Allied Safety officers with any technological discrepancies. Grayson, as a leader, has also helped multiple staff members in handling conflict with residents or amongst themselves. Grayson has been continuously using his experience and emotional intelligence to make sure that issues get resolved, and that the outcome is always positive for the entire team of McAlister Staff. Grayson has always been the one to submit everything on time, and ask about incoming deadlines ahead of time. He is also the one to remind the staff about the upcoming deadlines and make sure that they have everything that they need. Residents love Grayson, and in the form sent out they all voted for Grayson. Grayson deserves this award!"

We know that reslife work can be a thankless job, but it is arguably one the most important jobs on campus. Our student employees are the most capable workers with unparalleled leadership, time management, and administrative skills. Their creativity, empathy, and maturity are always front and center, no matter what may be going on in their personal lives. They have gone above and beyond this year to ensure our residence halls can operate safely during the pandemic and we are excited to celebrate them all week long! Help us say THANK YOU to our student staff by shouting out any RA/DA who made a positive impact on your residential experience in the comments below 👇

A veritable architectural museum without walls, Charleston is home to thousands of historic buildings designed in an array of period styles, including Colonial, Georgian, Regency, Federal, Adamesque, Classical Revival, Greek Revival, Italianate, Gothic Revival, and Queen Anne, as well as a number of others. The College’s campus is no different and we are proud to offer our students the opportunity to live on-campus in a variety of historic houses.

Historic houses are another type of “residence hall,” typically for upperclassmen who are looking for a unique community. Each house has a different history and layout. Some houses have full kitchens and shared living spaces along with shared, free laundry.

It’s no surprise historic houses were just voted the favorite on-campus housing option by students in our IG community #MarchMadness tournament this week! Find out more about our historic houses at the link in our bio.

This week we re-opened several communal kitchens within our residence halls that were deemed safe for use by students in those residential communities. The following communal kitchens are now open: Berry (3rd floor kitchen), McAlister (1st floor lounge), College Lodge (1st floor laundry area), Rutledge Rivers (1st floor lounge), and McConnell (4th floor kitchen).

Safety remains our priority, so we are implementing the following rules and regulations for kitchen usage:
• Masks must be worn at ALL times when in the kitchen area.
• Students must return to their individual room/suite to remove their masks and eat their food
• Capacity limits must be followed as posted in your kitchen space.
• Kitchen use is only permitted between 7am and 8pm
• All students must bring their own pots/pans/utensils and dishwashing materials for use in the kitchen
• All surfaces must be wiped down before and after use with the provided sanitation supplies

We would like to acknowledge Residence Hall Association (@cofcrha) for their advocacy regarding this initiative.

We hope that kitchen usage will further the sense of community and healthy living within our residence halls. Thank you for your patience as we have worked through the process of reopening these spaces safely.
