For session 2, Debating 101, students will analyze the first presidential TV debate. Please remember that you should watch the televised debates beforehand because the discussion will be an analysis of the event.

Students of all political persuasions and viewpoints are welcome, and political novices are encouraged to participate. The discussion will be moderated by Honors College scholar-in-residence John Culhane.

Honors Student Association – Interest Meeting

From the Honors Student Association (HSA): Hi Cougars and welcome back to campus! The Honors Student Association wants to give a warm welcome to you all, and we hope move-in weekend was a smooth transition to hybrid classes. The Honors Student Association is looking forward to making this semester as energizing and “normal” as possible.

The goal of the Honors Student Association has always been to make the Honors College experience as valuable and exciting to its students as possible. In past semesters HSA has held semi-formals, community service events, ice cream socials, Halloween events, and more. Of course, due to social distancing and health concerns, these events will look much different this year, but hopefully, with some input we can make the Honors College experience just as fun and exciting as previous years. This is where you all as a student body, and as a community of being in the Honors College comes into play.

This semester, HSA is looking to expand both the general body and executive board positions. The Honors Student Association is a great club to build leadership skills and to also contribute to the experience that honors students have here at The College.

More information will be given at our first interest meeting of the semester which will be Thursday, September 24th at 5:30pm. Also, a special prize giveaway will be given to the person with the most spunky and fun mask, so don’t be afraid to put your mask collection on display!

Peer Mentoring with the REACH Program

The REACH Program is seeking volunteer mentors to assist students in the program with the transitions and experiences of college. Mentors aid in providing a “true college experience” for students by sharing time, knowledge, and experiences with their peers. Mentors are role models, supporters, and friends! Interactions can take place on weekdays or weekends, virtually and in-person, and can be anything you would typically do with friends or for school based on your interests. Commit to a short amount of time each week and start building a truly valuable relationship!

Interested students can contact Arianne Bauserman, Mentor Coordinator, at with questions or download a Mentor Information form here.

*Note: Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, all in-person interactions must be in compliance with the College of Charleston’s and City of Charleston’s recommendations and policies.
