CofC Dance: “Out of Control”

The Department of Theatre and Dance in the College of Charleston School of the Arts will showcase “Out of Control,” directed by Gretchen McLaine and choreographed by the College’s dance faculty and guest artist Ashlee Ratigan for the Charleston County School of the Arts. The College’s dance students comprise the cast.

What makes this production “Out of Control”? Just one example includes the interaction of audience members to vote on what music, from opera to rap, will be chosen for one of the pieces. Having no idea of the song choices given to the audience, the dancers will have to quickly adapt their performance to represent the music selected.

The Dance program collaborated with the Department of Computer Science for part of the performance. [Learn about the collaboration and the growing Computing in the Arts program.] 

DETAILS:  The event will run from Oct. 23-26, 2014 at 7:30 p.m., except on Sunday, Oct. 26 at 3 p.m. only, in the Emmett Robinson Theatre, Simons Center for the Arts, 54 Saint Philip St. Tickets are $10 for senior citizens and College of Charleston students & employees and $15 for public admission. Season subscriptions are still available. Purchase tickets online at theatre.cofc.edu, by emailing [email protected] or by calling (843) 953-5604.

Fall 2014 Mid Term Academic Advising and Planning Center Newsletter

Spring course registration begins this week

Course registration for spring 2015 will begin this week. The Registration Entry Times for all students can be found at http://registrar.cofc.edu/calendars/entrytimes.php and is based on earned hours. It is not unusual for first year students to feel some degree of anxiety attempting to register for the first time.  To assist them with these decisions all first year students and those undecided about a major have an assigned advisor through the Academic Advising & Planning Center (2nd floor Lightsey Center). Contact information for the Center can be found at http://advising.cofc.edu/contact-us/index.php. First year students are required to meet with an advisor from the Academic Advising & Planning Center to discuss spring coursework before they can register. Academic advisors from the Center have been reaching out to first year students since early in the fall semester about making an appointment to discuss the spring registration process. Once a student declares a major a faculty advisor will be assigned to them in that major area.

 

Students should check to make sure there are no holds preventing registration and be flexible when selecting the days/times for their spring classes. If a student has a registration hold on their account, they will not be able to register for courses until this hold is cleared. Only the department who placed the hold can remove the hold from your account.

 

To determine if there is a hold the student should:

  • Login to MyCharleston – locate the Registration Tools channel on the Academic Services tab
  • Click on the Registration Status link to view registration eligibility
  • Select the Term
  • Click the Submit button
  • The next screen will indicate whether or not a student has any holds that would prevent registration.
  • If there is a hold on the account, scroll to the bottom of the page and click the View Holds link to see which department placed the hold
  • Go to this department to resolve the hold. This could be an overnight process so it is best not to wait until the scheduled registration day to resolve a hold

Some additional links that students may find helpful about course registration can be found at:

 

Email [email protected] with any questions or problems regarding course registration. Please be sure to include a full name and CWID in any email correspondence.

Religious Life Council/Religious Studies/Jewish Studies/Office of Institutional Diversity

Rachel McNeal: Interfaith Cooperation

On Friday, October 17th the College of Charleston will welcome Rachael McNeal to the campus for a two-part presentation.  Rachael McNeal is a member of the Interfaith Youth Core’s Alumni Speaker Bureau and is the Coordinator of the Interfaith Center at University of North Florida. She will speak at Wells Fargo Auditorium at 4:30pm on the Science of Interfaith Cooperation and in Stern 205 at 7:30pm on the Art of Interfaith Cooperation as well as her personal story as an evangelic Christian involved in interfaith work.

The Religious Life Council, Department of Religious Studies, Jewish Studies Program, and Office of Institutional Diversity will be co-sponsoring the event.

As communities become more diverse, people of different religious/spiritual worldviews are interacting with greater frequency than earlier generations.  These interactions can inspire collaboration and cohesion or escalate conflict and violence.  Institutions of higher educatin have the infrastructure and resources to advance a knowledge base and skill set equipping students to build a religious pluralism based in social science data. (Adapted from IFYC mission).

The vision of the Interfaith Youth Core will be the center of the 4:30pm presentation.  Faculty and students are welcome.  We encourage classes to attend.
