Looking Forward

We know you are about to gather with friends or family to enjoy the Thanksgiving Holiday, but we wanted to tell you one more thing:

An amazing opportunity is being presented to the College of Charleston community! On Tuesday, November 27th, 2012, Dr. Temple Grandin will be presenting in the Sottile Theater from 7:00-9:00pm.

Not sure who Dr. Grandin is?

Author of Unwritten Rules of Social Relationships, The Way I See It:  A personal look at autism, and Asperger’s and Thinking in Pictures: My life with autism, Dr. Grandin is an advocate for animal welfare and individuals with disabilities. Personally, she is a person with autism, an animal scientist, and a professor at Colorado State University. Her efforts have revolutionized the handling of livestock around the world, making practices more human.
