Since 1770, the College of Charleston has played a critical and vital role in the city, state, nation and the world. The College’s year-long celebration will reflect on the past, acknowledge the present and boldly imagine its impact on making the world a better place. Join us in celebrating this special milestone.
Launching in November 2019 and closing out on Founder’s Day, January 2021, the College of Charleston will come together with students, faculty, staff, alumni and the community for a yearlong
celebration of its founding in 1770.
Born out of the Age of Enlightenment and forged in an era of revolutionary awakening, the College of Charleston was founded in 1770. For 250 years, the College has grown, developed and evolved. It has been through exciting and complex times defined by starts and stops; defeats and victories; and challenges and achievements.
