Charleston Southern Residence Life

Learn to thrive and honor God through community with your peers. Living on campus provides experiences that include making new friends, facing new challenges and developing memories that will last you a lifetime.

In keeping with the mission of CSU, the Office of Residence Life strives to create an environment that is conducive to the intellectual, emotional, spiritual and relational well-being of each residential student. Integration of faith in learning, leading and serving are elements that produce opportunities for Residence Life to partner in building a thriving learning community within our dorms.

“There are more people trapped in slavery today than ever before in human history. Most of the world knows nothing about the most significant human rights issue of its time. @enditmovement is a collective of everyday people united by the hope that we could put an end to slavery and human trafficking in our lifetime.” #enditmovement❌ @a21 #endslavery #awareness @ Charleston Southern University

[02/12/20]   We hope to see you at these awesome events!

After surveys, listening sessions, and strategic meetings for more than a year, CSU’s bottom line became clear – we prepare servant leaders to pursue significant lives. The strategic planning team, led by President Dondi Costin, identified Point A (where we are today) and Point B (where we believe God wants us to go). The 2020-2025 Strategic Plan charts the course and provides metrics to stay the course. Check it out for yourself: https://www.charlestonsouthern.edu/about/strategic-plan/

Who needs roses and violets when you can have NEON? Let's glow in the dark and dance the night away at Neon Nights this Thursday! Don't miss out! We'll see you there! #csubucs #csusweet16 #neonnights #reslifetogether #danceparty #glowinthedark

The single best way to prevent seasonal flu is to get vaccinated each year, but good health habits like covering your cough and washing your hands often can help stop the spread of germs and prevent respiratory illnesses like the flu. Flu season lasts until March, so it's not too late to get a flu shot.

If you or your roommate suspects he/she is sick, visit the doctor immediately. If you are diagnosed with the flu, be sure to stay home, rest, and drink plenty of fluids. Don't forget to email your professors to find out how you can make up missed work. #fightflu

[10/17/19]   CSU Family,

After a stomach virus hit some of our campus community last week, some students shared media indicating the Dining Hall had a rodent problem, implying rodents were the cause of illness. This, simply, is false.

Posting information like this publicly on social media is libelous. In this case, it discredits our dining services, a vital part of our CSU community. Whether it is malicious or not, it is serious. Check out page 53 of our Student Handbook (https://www.charlestonsouthern.edu/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/studenthandbook.pdf) to view Social Media Sanctions.

CSU has strict protocols in place to ensure a safe and healthy living and learning community, including but not limited to:
Routine pest prevention treatment weekly in buildings, and response to additional requests as needed (i.e. ants in a resident’s room).
The Dining Hall closes twice a year for fumigation treatment.
All kitchen equipment and panels are pressure washed to ensure cleanliness.

Many staff from departments campuswide have worked tirelessly for more than a week to debunk these rumors. The Dining Hall has an “A” rating with DHEC – and they received a routine inspection last Thursday to maintain that grade. DHEC also responded yesterday due to allegations of rodents in the Dining Hall. Nothing was found and we received a perfect rating.

This should serve as a reminder to share only what you know to be accurate. It can be too easy to mislead others on social media with a click-bait headline or edited photo.

We’re all in this together! You’ve been preparing for midterms all semester, now just remember what you’ve learned! #prayersforyou #yougotthis #midterms #almostfallbreak Photo cred:@d_steffy

Please take care and do your part to prevent the spread of illness! We are here for you, so let us know if you need anything! #reslifetogether

www.cdc.gov

UPDATE: CSU officials have been actively investigating the illness reports. Several cases have been confirmed by medical professionals as a stomach virus (i.e. norovirus) and Aramark has interviewed nearly all individuals who reported having the symptoms to pinpoint any food-related illness. So far, the reports do not provide evidence of causation. We will continue to treat this as a high priority and will update accordingly.

If you or a friend is feeling sick here are some tips to prevent the spread of illness:

As always, your ResLife Staff is here for you. Please let us know if you need anything!
