Spring Alumni Weekend 2019 was held May 3-5 with parties, brunches, A Charleston Affair, and other events throughout the weekend that welcomed College of Charleston alumni home to campus.

The premier event was the 120th Alumni Reception, now known as “A Charleston Affair,” on Saturday, May 4, from 7-10 pm. Since 1900, the Alumni Association has held an annual reception to welcome the graduating students into its membership. The event is held across campus from Calhoun to Wentworth Streets and St. Philip to Coming Streets. More than 3,700 alumni, graduating students, and their guests danced under the stars to live music by Fantasy in Cistern Yard and DJ Natty Heavy in Cougar Mall. New this year: an upgraded gourmet menu, expanded craft beer and wine offerings in the Glebe Street Lounge, and brand-new VIP areas, including a “Beach Club” where guests shagged the night away!

Spring Alumni Weekend offers gatherings for alumni of all ages and interests, so explore the schedule and purchase event tickets early before they sell out!
