CofC Day Packed with Opportunities and Activities

In celebration of the 250th anniversary of its founding, the College of Charleston will hold its first-ever CofC Day event on Thursday, Jan. 30, 2020. A day of giving aimed at generating excitement and support for the institution’s future, CofC Day provides students, alumni, faculty, staff and friends of the College with the opportunity to give back.

CofC Day starts at midnight on Jan. 30, and the CofC community may kick the day off right by donating online through the CofC Day website. In addition to the giving campaign, there will be fun activities on campus throughout the day including the following:
