  1. previously posted comment regarding fall 2016 registration. Is it possible to pay the fee at the meeting on Sept 13?

    1. Sandy,
      I am sorry for not noticing your question earlier. Hopefully you joined without any problems. Yes-anyone can join either online or in person at one of our Tuesday lectures. I also just found out that the college can accept credit cards in person as well as online. If paying by check it must be made out to the College of Charleston.
