Fall into the College of Charleston

October 12th

Welcome!

Hello everyone! My name is Sarah Jean Hinson and I am a senior here at the College majoring in communication and minoring in historic preservation and community planning. I transferred to the College of Charleston from Clemson and started my first semester here in Spring 2013. Over the summer, I was an orientation intern with the office of New Student Programs. I had the privilege of meeting many transfer students over the summer, so I wanted to develop a way to more closely involve transfer students in student life here at the College. I'm planning on sending out an email about twice a month with information that I hope will be relevant for you during your first year at the College. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me via Twitter (CofCSarahJeanH) or by email at hinsonsj@g.cofc.edu
