As the College of Charleston prepares to resume on-campus classes for the fall 2020 semester, the Back on the Bricks website will serve as the official information resource for the university community. Due to the fluid nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, this website will be updated regularly as the College adjusts to evolving conditions and to updated guidance from local, state and federal authorities, which may include Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC) and others.

The components of this plan, including Housing, AcademicsCampus Life and more, were developed in consultation with students, faculty, staff, deans, chairs, senior administrators, parents, trustees, alumni, health professionals, community members and other stakeholders.

While the College recognizes that this unprecedented worldwide event presents enormous challenges to our academic mission, it also provides incredible opportunities to unite our campus community around common goals and to prepare our students for obstacles they will face in their lives and careers after graduation. One of the defining hallmarks of the liberal arts education the College is known for is adaptability. The broad foundational knowledge that we impart across our curriculum is ideally suited for extraordinary times like these.

Throughout its 250-year history, the College has survived wars, hurricanes, financial calamities and other great challenges. Eventually, we will add the COVID-19 pandemic to the list of challenges we have overcome. And we will do it together, as one family, as Cougars.
