Re: “Being one of Princeton Review's top 20 party schools is nothing to brag about

Also, here is some information from the school's website about diversity programs and programs for students with disabilities. I'm sure there is more if you just take a look.

Each summer before a student's freshman year, the school has required reading. The student's write an essay based on prompts from either the school or the author (I'm not sure but it's all on the school's website) that must be turned at their convocation ceremony which takes place before school begins. They attend discussion programs revolving around their required reading as well. The program is called CollegeReads! This years required reading was The True American: Murder and Mercy in Texas by Anand Giridharadas. The year my child entered the College of Charleston the required reading was Freedom Summer by Bruce Watson. Mr. Watson was able to visit the campus and speak to the students at several events held on campus that year.

The opportunities are there for the students. If you have more ideas, please reach out to the school as I'm sure they will listen.

Re: “Being one of Princeton Review's top 20 party schools is nothing to brag about

As the parent of a College of Charleston student I know there are some amazing, respectful and terrific kids on that campus. It would be great if the author of this (and any other disparaging) article would,rather than write an article that tears the kids and the school down, perhaps reach out to the College directly and propose a joint effort between the community, the City and the College and its student/faculty body to build the bridge that would make Charleston and the College that much better. Many of these students will stay in Charleston after graduation and become your neighbors, your employee, your boss and perhaps your friend. I realize sometimes you have to call the Police when it becomes out of hand and I totally understand that but don't simply complain about the problem. Approach the school and the town with a idea or a plan to make it better as well. I'm not giving any person a pass who breaks the law and disturbs the peace but I do think there are productive and smart ways to try to make it better for everyone. It's a great school and I'm proud my child attends the College of Charleston.
