No More Pencils, No More Books, No More Teachers’ Dirty Looks

If January is about setting goals, then December must be about recognizing the goals you’ve accomplished in the last twelve months.  I’ve invited our Graduation Czarina, Regan Fantry, to guest blog about our wonderful graduate students who will be walking the stage in eight days.  Congratulations!!!


As the semester draws to a close, we are quickly approaching Graduation Day!

The Graduate School would like to take a moment to congratulate the members of the December 2008 graduating class. This semester, a total 50 students will graduate from the Graduate School.

The Fall Commencement Ceremony is returning to campus for the first time in several years, taking place in the College of Charleston’s brand new Carolina First Arena on Meeting Street. We’re extremely excited to have the opportunity to show off the beautiful new arena with such a great event! The ceremony is also moving from Sunday morning to Saturday morning, December 20 at 10:00AM. This year’s speaker will be Jennet Robinson Alterman, Executive Director of the Center for Women, and there will be a reception after the ceremony for graduates and their families.

If you are graduating and participating in Saturday’s ceremony, don’t forget to stop by the Graduate School Office and pick up your tickets by 5:00PM on Friday, December 19. Each graduate is allowed 8 tickets. If you need more, though, don’t worry– On December 15, we will begin offering extra tickets on a first come, first serve basis!

Please feel free to contact Regan Fantry at the Graduate School Office if you have any questions, and again, congratulations to the Class of 2008!

The Graduate Studies Office is located in suite 310 of Randolph Hall.  Our phone number is 843.953.5614.
