2012-13 School of the Arts Awards

The School of the Arts celebrates the accomplishments of all of its graduates. The School will honor the achievements of a select group of students who have demonstrated excellence in their respective disciplines. The Awards Ceremony on Friday, May 10 will recognize those who have set a standard for their peers as well as those who will follow in their footsteps. The event will begin with a continental breakfast at 8:30 a.m. in the lobby of the Simons Center for the Arts, followed by the ceremony at 9 a.m. in the Recital Hall. (54 St. Philip Street)

The School will also recognize alumni who have made significant professional and personal contributions to their communities since graduating from the College of Charleston.
