Overview

More than two centuries ago, the citizens of Charleston realized their dream by establishing a college that would prepare future leaders through traditional instruction in the liberal arts. As the oldest institution of higher learning in South Carolina and the first municipal college in the nation, the College of Charleston has since played a vital role in educating young men and women from the city, the state and beyond. And as a central influence in the cultural and commercial evolution of Charleston, the College has helped shape the character of a unique and beloved city.

Participants in the colorful story of the College of Charleston include not only thousands of former and current students, but also faculty and administrators as well as friends and contributors throughout the city. They have chronicled their experiences in letters to families and friends, diaries, memoirs, student newspapers and magazines, official memos and minutes, oral histories and, more recently, e-mails. Their accounts reveal the interwoven influences that have defined the history of the campus and the community.

This engaging book features a collection of primary documents written by College of Charleston students and other participants from the school's earliest years to the present day. They offer a candid glimpse into campus life, institutional struggles, student memories, alumni accomplishments and community involvement. They provide a rich and fascinating account of the past, distant and recent, recounted in the voices of those who have been characters in the story of Charleston's college.
