Summer discussions: Managing money

Summer is a great time to talk with your student about managing money and creating a budget. This will be an especially timely conversation if your student has a summer job. Lack of money is often cited by many students as the reason for leaving college. Also, be sure to talk to your student about applying for credit cards, credit card interest/debt, credit history, credit reports, and having a good FICO score. Students may be unfamiliar with these terms and how debt can affect things like buying a car, renting an apartment, or buying a home.

Take a look at some of the resources provided below and plan time to have this discussion with your student. Learning how to budget, manage finances, plan for changes, and prepare for the unexpected will help your student reach their financial and academic goals.

CofC Move out Information – Spring 2016

Housing Information

In the next few weeks, the RA’s will be having hall meetings to go over the move out procedures for spring 2016.  All meetings should be complete by April 15th.

 

All students who live on campus will need to make an appointment with their RA 24 hours prior to the actual move out to have the room checked.  At the meeting, the RA will provide details about what needs to be cleaned, etc.  If their RA is not available at a time that works for the student, they can sign up with another RA in the building.

If you have any questions, check out the Residence Life and Housing website at http://reslife.cofc.edu/.  If you have additional questions, please email reslife@cofc.edu.

Move Out Drive – Move Out 2016

  1. There will be bins in the lobby to donate items you don’t want to take home. These should be “gently used” items that someone might want to purchase at a Good Will. DO NOT leave items unattended in the lobby or near the bins when you are moving out. They might get picked up during a collection.
  2. Do not give mattress pads, hangers, open detergents or boxes of trash bags, food items, underwear/bras, and toiletries.

Parking Information for Move-Out from Residence Halls – Spring 2016

 The College of Charleston’s offices of Residence Life, Public Safety, New Student Programs, and Parking Services have partnered together so that we can provide convenient parking for the families of students moving out of residence halls for the summer.

Be advised that any street parking other than metered spaces will be ticketed by The College of Charleston and/or the City of Charleston. Parking on streets in areas that are not designated as parking areas restricts traffic flow and creates safety concerns for both pedestrians and other vehicles. Leaving someone to stand guard at a vehicle that is parked on the street will not prevent that vehicle from being ticketed.

Tip:  Don’t forget to bring hand trucks or dollies for move out.  Each residence hall will have a limited number in the lobby so it may be a good idea to bring your own to assist in the moving process.

SURFACE LOT AVAILABILITY

 

Selected surface lots that will be available for move-out on the dates and times provided below the following list:

  • G Lot (close to Buist-Rivers; please note that you cannot park in a space that is marked as “handicap accessible” or “Residence Hall Director”)
  • BS Lot (close to Bull Street historic houses please note that you cannot park in the space that is marked as “Residence Hall Director”)
  • Q Lot (close to Coming Street historic houses)
  • CS Lot (close to Coming Street historic houses)
  • I Lot (close to McConnell; CofC marked spaces only)
  • P Lot (close to McConnell and Wentworth Street historic and fraternity houses)
  • W Lot (at 298-300 Meeting Street)
  • WP Lot (close to Warren Place and Kelley House; also fairly close to Berry and McAlister; excludes the service space and the Residence Hall Director space)

 

We will not be ticketing the selected surface lots listed above during the following timeframes ONLY:

Friday 4/22/2016 from 5:00 PM until 9:00 PM

Saturday 4/23/2016 from 12:00 PM until 5:00 PM

Sunday 4/24/2016 from 1:00 PM until 5:00 PM

Monday 4/25/2016 from 5:00 PM until 9:00 PM

Tuesday 4/26/2016 from 5:00 PM until 9:00 PM

Wednesday 4/27/2016 from 5:00 PM until 9:00 PM

Thursday 4/28/2016 from 5:00 PM until 9:00 PM

Friday 4/29/2016 from 5:00 PM until 9:00 PM

Saturday 4/30/2016 from 12:00 PM until 5:00 PM

 

For exact locations of these surface parking lots, please consult the College of Charleston parking map. Printed copies of the map are available at Parking Services or Public Safety.

 

These are the only surface lots that will be available, and they will only be available during the timeframes provided above. Exams do not officially end until 4/29/2016, and students and employees with permits for these lots will still need access to their spaces while other students are moving out. Even if a lot appears to have several available spaces, it will be ticketed; the only exceptions are in the lots listed above during the designated timeframes.

GARAGE PARKING

 

For students who are moving out at times when there will not be surface lot availability, or for students whose residence halls are close to the PG, GG, or WG garages, we will offer complimentary two-hour garage parking for one vehicle per student. Please read the following information very carefully:

 

  • Upon request students will be provided with one 2-hour parking voucher for one of the following garages: PG Garage, GG Garage, or WG Garage. For exact locations of these garages, please consult the College of Charleston parking map. PG Garage is convenient to Berry and McAlister, and is reasonably close to Warren Place, Kelly House, and College Lodge. GG Garage is convenient to Craig Hall, George Street Apartments, and Liberty Street Residence Hall, and is reasonably close to Buist-Rivers. WG Garage is convenient to the Wentworth Street historic houses and the fraternity houses, and is reasonably close to McConnell and Craig.
  • Garage parking vouchers will be available at the Parking Services office beginning on Friday, 4/22/2016, and must be picked up during business hours (Monday through Friday; 8:30 AM – 5 PM). A valid Cougar Card must be presented in order to receive your garage parking voucher. (Public Safety will have a limited supply of garage parking vouchers if you need to pick one up after 5 PM.)
  • Garage vouchers may be redeemed at any time of day between 4/23/2016 and 4/30/2016.
  • Garage vouchers will represent the only parking option to students who plan on moving out on a weekday prior to 5 PM.
  • There is a strict two-hour time limit on the parking garage vouchers, so please have all belongings packed and ready to go before you begin moving them out. If time parked exceeds two hours, patrons will be responsible for paying the additional fees.
  • You must retain the ticket that you pulled upon entering the garage in order to be eligible for the two hours of free parking. You must surrender both the ticket and the voucher to the cashier in order to be eligible for the two hours of free parking.

The Countdown Continues…The Cougar Countdown, that is!!

Monday…Tuesday…Wednesday….Monday??

 

That’s right, Thursday, 4/21, is the Last Day of Class and it’s a MONDAY schedule! Confused? Just check with your professors; you’ll be fine. Next up is…

 

Friday, 4/22:  READING DAY (no classes) and  also the beginning of COUGAR COUNTDOWN!!

http://cougarcountdown.cofc.edu/activities/index.php

 

Cougar Countdown is a week-long series of FREE  activities and events sponsored by offices and businesses on and off campus to help you stay refreshed, motivated, and positive during Exam Week! There’s something for everyone, for example:

 

  • Yoga and Zumba classes (10 classes during Exam Week!)
  • Early morning coffee (every day!)
  • Ice cream sundaes and a cookout! (Wow!)
  • Dogs! (There’s nothing better as a stress-reliever…)
  • Massage! (Ahhh…)
  • Meditation! (Breathe…)
  • Snacks! (Of course!)
  • Breakfast! (Comfort food!)
  • Extra tutoring!  (Nice!)
  • And more…

 

Check the schedule on the website above , like us on Facebook  https://www.facebook.com/CofCCountdown  , follow us on Twitter  https://twitter.com/cofccountdown  , and on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/cofccougarcountdown/    or you can just check out the big calendar posters at both entrances to the library!

 

Most importantly, put Exam Week, and final exams, into the proper perspective. A test—or even four or five of them– does not determine your worth or value as a person.

“Success is a state of mind. If you want success, start thinking of yourself as a success.”

–Dr. Joyce Brothers

 

Happy End of the Semester to All of Our CofC Successes!

 

Your Cougar Countdown Team

And Your CSL Academic Support Team

ORIENTATION INFORMATION FAIR – SUMMER 2016 DATES and REGISTRATION INFORMATION

 

The Office of New Student Programs invites campus departments, student clubs, and organizations to participate in the Orientation Information Fair.

 

The information fair will be on the 2nd day of orientation from 2:00-3:00 pm on Rivers Green (the grassy area behind Addlestone Library).   The dates will June 22, June 24, June 28, June 30, July 12, July 15, July 19, July 22 and August 19 (we don’t do an information fair at session 9). Also, the June 30th session is on a Thursday and NOT a Friday like our other Thursday/Friday sessions.

Participants should arrive to set up at 1:45 pm.

 

A change for summer 2016 orientation is that students will be able to get their cougar card after they have their picture taken and not have to wait until after the info fair. We are not sure how this will affect the attendance at the fair but are not able to change the time of the fair for this upcoming summer. 

 

We will be able to offer tables for all groups that sign up by June 1st.  We will only be able to set up tables for the campus offices and banks that participate.  Student groups will be given a location to set up their table (that we will supply if you sign up by June 1st).

 

The location is NOT shaded so you may want to arrange to borrow or purchase a tent.  You cannot put stakes in the grass on Rivers Green.    The orientation office has purchased tents for orientation at Dick’s Sporting Goods, Wal-Mart, Target, etc.  They usually go on sale in May.

 

Orientation is an excellent opportunity to promote your majors, departmental services, recruit club members, or share club and organization information. Approximately 285 new students and 300 parents will attend each of the ten sessions, making orientation an excellent time to inform new students about the opportunities in your area.

 

The Orientation Information Fair is open only to College of Charleston departments and campus related organizations.

If you register, you will receive an email in early June with check in information.

 

We ask that you request to participate in this event no later than June 1, 2016.

 

To participate in the Orientation Information Fair, register online at http://goo.gl/forms/41pejrEh76

 

Thank you for your interest and support in our new students!  If you have questions, please email auwaerters@cofc.edu.
