Getting Through the Coronavirus Crisis Together

When the College of Charleston announced March 19 that students would not be returning to campus during the COVID-19 pandemic, many of you reached out to ask how you could help. This health crisis presents a challenge unlike anything the College has faced in modern times. But the CofC Family is coming together as one to meet it.

CofC has already implemented strategies that will help all of us manage this crisis while maintaining academic continuity and support for our CofC Family. A gift to the Student Emergency Fund provides students support in the following areas:

  • Textbooks and School Supplies
  • Food
  • Household bills, rent, etc.

Supporting the Student Emergency Fund will support the College’s commitment to serve every member of our CofC Family and will ensure we get through these times together. Please give and spread the word about this important effort.

As always, thank you for caring for Cougar Nation.
