Dear Fellow Alumni and May Graduates,

In 1900, the CofC Alumni Association began hosting an annual reception to welcome graduating students into its membership. This event has grown into Spring Alumni Weekend, featuring a Piazza Prowl of reunions across campus on Friday evening, May 5, and A Charleston Affair on Saturday evening, May 6. Proceeds of Spring Alumni Weekend ticket sales will benefit the College’s Campus Preservation Fund.

On Friday evening, sip and stroll through campus to reminisce with fellow alumni, graduating students, and professors. This spring marks the 40th anniversary of the College winning two NAIA national championships in Men’s Basketball and Women’s Tennis. Those team members, Coach John Kresse, and Coach Billy Silcox ’65 will be our honored guests at the Class of ’83 reunion. Stop by the reunions for the Classes of ’73 and ’13, our Alumni Affinity Groups, and more. Your ticket includes a limited-edition t-shirt, too!

On Saturday evening, dance under the oaks at our 122nd Alumni Reception, known as A Charleston Affair. From Calhoun to Wentworth, and St. Philip to Coming Streets, it’s the largest garden party in Charleston! THE MAXX, The Coppertones, and DJ Kidd Shanard ’18 will perform for your dancing pleasure. The College’s Executive Chef and Chopped alumna Tonya Williams will present a southern menu to tempt every palate. Enjoy an open bar of delicious craft cocktails, mocktails, premium beers, and wine. Upgrade your experience with tickets to one of four VIP areas.

We hope to see you May 5-6 at Spring Alumni Weekend!
