Center for Student Learning (CSL) Tutoring Labs Open Monday (plus our Open House)

Please encourage your students to come by the CSL this Monday (9/1/14) to enjoy some refreshments and prizes to celebrate the opening of the Center for Student Learning’s 40th year of service.

We often are asked why we only have tutoring open from September 1- December 1 and there are, of course, good reasons. It takes us a few days after add/drop to settle the tutoring lab schedules (since all our tutors are peer tutors) and we don’t stay open into final exam period because our peer tutors have their own exams to prepare and take. In addition to logistical reasons, we don’t tutor too early in the semester because we want students to build relationships with their faculty and we don’t tutor too late in the semester because we want to encourage early preparation for final exams.

Please let your students know that labs open at 10am Monday and that all lab schedules are updated online: http://csl.cofc.edu

We are excited to serve and work with your students through all of our services, including tutoring, Supplemental Instruction, and study skills appointments!!

Best wishes for a successful semester!

Residents receive electronic replies to keep them informed of the status of their maintenance request. If a student experiences a maintenance emergency (flooding, sewer difficulties or fire/life safety issues) during normal business hours (8:30 am – 5:00 pm M-F) they should immediately call the Housing Facilities Services Customer Service Line (843) 953-3700.

All billing information is sent to the student’s campus email account – to receive the student’s bill you must be an Authorized User! If you have any questions email treasurer@cofc.edu.

 

Fall Exam Schedule:

To determine fall exam dates look at the course schedule – note the day and times for each class (excluding lab days) that the student is taking during the fall semester. Then look at the fall exam schedule and match the fall schedule days/times to the exam schedule http://registrar.cofc.edu/pdf/exam-schedule-fall2014.pdf to find the day and time for the exam.

Your student should also review each course syllabus and listen in class for information from the professor about the final exam. If unsure always ask the professor!

No CARTA Express Service on Labor Day! (does not affect shuttle to aquarium)

Attention College of Charleston Faculty, Staff, and Students:

If you use the CARTA Express shuttles, please note that the CARTA Express service will not run on Labor Day, which is next Monday, September 1. As the College of Charleston’s administrative offices will be open on Labor Day and classes will be in session as usual, you will need to make alternate arrangements for your transportation to and from campus on Labor Day.

The College/Aquarium Garage DASH route will not be affected and will run on Labor Day. Please note that the College/Aquarium Garage DASH route will follow the Sunday schedule on Labor Day. For more information on CARTA holiday operations, please visit CARTA DASH Trolley Maps and scroll down to Route 210’s “Saturday and Sunday” schedule.

CofC Volunteer EMT Positions

Please see the below information if your student, or one that you know, is certified as an EMT or may be interested in becoming one. These students volunteer their nights and weekends to take care of the campus and do an outstanding job. In fact, they were recently named the 2014 Collegiate EMS Organization of the Year!

The College of Charleston EMS is looking for student volunteers that are certified as an Emergency Medical Technician (or above) to join our team. Interested students should be motivated and dependable as they will be providing emergency medical care to other students, faculty, staff and visitors of the College of Charleston. Volunteering with our program can provide valuable leadership and patient care experience. This year alone, volunteers from our program were accepted to medical schools, physician assistant programs, and several other graduate level programs.

If you are currently certified as an EMT in another state we can help you complete the required steps for reciprocity in the State of South Carolina. In most cases all that will be required is an application and background check. Those without current NREMT certification or with credentials that will lapse in the following 3 months may be required to retake the written examination.

You may download a membership application from our website at http://fireandems.cofc.edu/ems1/join.php or stop by the Department of Public Safety headquarters to pick one up. Applications can be returned via email or submitted to the front desk at Public Safety. Copies of all current certifications should be attached.

If you are not currently certified as an EMT and are interested in becoming one please visit http://fireandems.cofc.edu/emt/. Here you will find more information about how to become an EMT, including information on a course that is held on the College of Charleston Campus each semester.
