The dislike clearly came from Mark Sanford reading this piece....or some other coward not willing to comment as to why we should keep the profit in politics.
Colleges around the country struggle with this problem of binge drinking and all the related social (property destruction, community relations), economic (students rendered broke via bar tabs, lawyer's fees, fines), academic failure, legal and medical problems that relate to it. Yeah, yeah... party time, excellent and all that but the ones that have been successful are the ones that go hard and make access to the party scene more difficult especially for minors. This American Life did an entire episode titled "#1 Party School," focusing on my Alma Mater, that delved into what schools have tried that fails versus works. It is a good listen. University of Nebraska was the first major school to crack the code.
For the record, my school didn't even make the list this year; maybe the new president actually changed things.
I've been screaming item 5 since I was 5!
Alcohol is the most dangerous drug available - period! Statistics prove it every day.
This saddens me in such a way that my heart literally hurts. Please do not give up on this case. This little boy deserves Justice.. it's an embarrassment to our justice system! Love from me to you for your sincere concern for this little boy who suffered a horrific death due to ignorance and racism.
I guess nobody here was 18 and away from home for the first time. "Not a kneejerk." K...well, what effect do we believe this will actually have on drinking? Theyll move the parties to non-campus housing. Great job everyone, problem solved, now lets work on that ozone layer.
CoFC has a rep as a party school for a good reason....it is. Each freshman class progressively worse in the no common sense department. No worries everyone, it only lasts until mid to end of October. With total panic setting in November 1st when the usual suspects realize that they may have to go on the typical CoFC 5 year plan and their parents have to fork out for the same classes again after they beat their kids ass. Party on Bruh!!
You can see Cherny taking his vehicle from land to water in this video. https://youtu.be/zh5zkwuiLKg
I was lucky enough to meet Dimitri Cherny at a Sun City rally, then a week later host him in July for a weekend. Learning about how he plans to work FOR the citizens of SC , but also the citizens of the United States is what he's about. Dimitri "GETS IT" and how the middle class has been hit and hit hard.. The poor among us have also been hit hard with services and programs they depend on just to sustain themselves being cut or eliminated. He's clear, knows what needs to be done and is ready to roll up his sleeves and GET it DONE for all of us. Sanford as Governor was an embarrassment, as a US Congressman he's doing NOTHING to make life better for the people of SC...
About F'in TIME! More schools should get a spine and report the realted crimes (rape, etc) that go hand in hand with this binge drinking...in minors!
Margo Venomous is a true artist. I have 3 tattoos from her, all in the last year. One in January, one in May, and one in July. My next one is scheduled for October. She always listens to your ideas and counters with ideas of her own if she thinks it'll look better a certain way or work better on certain parts of your body. She really cares about what she does and what she puts on your body and where it goes. I have been completely and utterly blown away by what she has come up with all three times and I can't wait to see what she does with the new one. Margo Venomous is forever my tattoo artist.
Yes buy your bugspray. Lateral thought.
Admissions are too high when they can't even guarantee enough housing for 1/3 of the student body.
Elliotborough's been worse than usual, too. The past few weeks I've seen superbowl-weekend levels of day drinking.
Good luck with keeping admissions high.the only reason people seem to come is to party.
Cannonborough has become almost unlivable during the past few weeks and CofC is responding to the complaints in the appropriate way. Students have been passed out on the sidewalks and carted off in ambulances. Parties of THREE HUNDRED have been reported to the cops on Monday nights. Day drinking has been shut down over and over and the police can barely keep up. I commend the administration for doing the right thing.
LOL! Good luck with that.
Has this ever happened before?
We need for Congress to ante up the money to nip this in the bud. We have been financially ignoring public health in this country and the good people in health departments and the CDC are hanging on by their fingernails to protect us. We have Zika, Dengue and Chikungunya virus in the wings to cause a disaster. (Apparently we don't worry about the epidemic in Puerto Rico). The US needs to get serious about this and appropriate the money CDC and the NIAID need to manage these with 21st century tactics before its too late. But I guess we can always finger point when catastrophe hits.
Everyone was run out of tent city. Some given bus tickets. The rest of us...still in the same situation. They just pushed everyone into North Charleston. No longer the city's problem. I don't know one person that was actually housed.
Don't believe it - Charleston's not friendly enough to be a party town.
