“For me, the college search process was SO overwhelming & intimidating, but the moment I committed to CofC was INCREDIBLE. From that moment I knew I wanted to be a tour guide so I could let younger students know it’s alllll gonna be okay (especially if you come to CofC 😜)” - Ashley Layne, Sophomore Tour Guide

AND one more reminder for today! “I wanted to join C40 because my tour guide was GREAT when I came to The College and I wanted to be that person for other families. Since joining, I have been able to talk to tons of perspective families and encourage other students to decide on CofC, as well as conquer my fear of public speaking. GO C40!” - Autumn Jenkins, C40 New Member Coordinator

*ATTENTION ANY AND ALL COFC STUDENTS* Charleston Forty is hosting a "Meet the Tour Guides" event tomorrow night for any student attending our Interview Weekend and for anyone who has ever wondered what we do as tour guides. We hope to see you there!

“I applied to be a guide so I can share all my love for CofC with prospective students and hope they will come to CofC to have an amazing experience like I did.” - Javaron Conyers, Senior Tour Guide

"I applied to be a guide to join a community of friendly, welcoming people and to share my passion for the College with prospective students and their families." - Kacey Hirshfeld, C40 President
