Announcements from the Honors College

Mindfulness Workshop

Join us on Tuesday, October 24th from 5-7pm in Berry Residence Hall, Room 104 for a mindfulness workshop led by CofC Honors student, Kerry Wischusen.

Mindfulness is a unique style of paying attention to the present moment that promotes physical and mental health. It is being adopted by athletes, performers, and academics as a way to counter stress and increase performance. At this workshop, you will learn the basic components of mindfulness and their neural correlates, specific techniques you can practice, and how to incorporate this knowledge into your daily life as a college student.

Contact Kerry Wischusen (wischusenkr@g.cofc.edu) with any questions!

CAJM Fall Roundtable

What: The Charleston Area Justice Ministry (CAJM) is a local social justice organization that unites 28 churches, synagogues, and mosques to address community issues in Charleston and North Charleston. They are extremely socio-economically, politically, and religiously diverse— but they band together in recognition of their common local realities, and in pursuit of their common values. At the beginning of each fall, they initiate this process by bringing together intimate groups in candid conversation about the injustices in our community. This year, they invite students to join to share your insights. The College of Charleston makes up a significant portion of the city’s population, and students have experiences with the innermost workings and troubles of public transportation and housing downtown, to name a few. Join them to put your energy towards a local civic body that has proved to make significant changes for the better (on topics of racial discrimination, education, and more!– See the CAJM website and Facebook group for more information.
