College of Charleston is a campus like no other. Located in the heart of Charleston, the campus is surrounded by breathtaking views, award-winning beaches, and southern hospitality. Although the College of Charleston is home to students and alumni from all over, every Cougar could agree that with this list, these are for sure signs that you go to The College.
1. Skipped class to go to Sullivans Island
Ah yes, we have all done it. Skipped our 11 a.m to get an early start on our beach day. Never takes a lot of convincing to get your best friend to agree!
2. Biked to the battery to watch the sunset
Whether you bike, walk, or take a golf cart to the battery, it's always filled with students waiting to say goodbye to the sun for the day.
3. Stood in line for Bennys
Hands down the most craved pizza spot on upper King. Anyone will stand in line since it is guaranteed you will bump into at least five more people you know at midnight.
4. Gone to Callies late-night window
Some don’t know this, but Callies Hot little Biscuits opens back up around midnight for the hungry night crowed! Just need to squeeze past the line for Silver Dollar to get in!
5. Taken photos of the Cistern
I mean Nicholas Sparks didn’t incorporate the Cistern in the Notebook just for fun. It is, in fact, a staple point and one of the most beautiful parts of our campus, let alone the peninsula.
6. Jumped in the fountain on Morris St
Yup, enough said.
7. Participated in one of Charlie's Groceries giveaways
This corner store runs one of the funniest Instagrams, and they are always handing out prizes!
8. Been scared by the manakin in the CVS window
My personal favorite and worse enemy. CVS just thought it would be a good idea to dress the manakin in CofC apparel to make it appear more real, scaring students walking down Saint Phillip St.
9. Lost your friends on King St
Has to be the scariest five minutes until you run into them again with more friends.
10. Walking tour of your own city
Being a tourist to take photos of Rainbow Row and Colonial Lake never gets old.
11. Taken a Bike Taxi home
When its too far to walk home, but too close to justice an Uber, the Bike Taxi is the way to go!!
12. Gotten stuck in the lobby of Sky-G
The longest wait is waiting for your friend with the key to come down to give you access to the elevator.
13. Ordered an appetizer Trio from Taco Boy
Worth the wait for the table...trust me. And for your own good, order two orders of the trio.
14. Been lost in Simons Center
All non-art majors have done it, I promise
15. Tripped on the bricks
We have all played it off as if no one was looking while responding to a text. Often the scariest fall.
16. Stolen silverware out of liberty
Whether by accident or on purpose every freshman dorm had a random spoon from Liberty Fresh Food co.
17. Cried in Addlestone
You don’t go to CofC if you don’t cry in Addlestone a couple of times a semester, at least.
18. Stayed home from class because of rain
Perhaps your car won’t make it down Calhoun St due to flooding or you live on Duncan St and the water is past your knees, we have all missed a class due to flooding.
19. Walked the Ravenel
The windiest most beautiful walk!
20. Eaten more than one meal a day at Caviar
No ones judging. Personally, I’ve had all three meals at Caviar and don’t regret it.
