Historic Preservation Club

The Historic Preservation Club is open to any student interested in preservation issues and community involvement. The Club provides opportunities to learn about historic preservation on a local, national, and international level through lectures, guest speakers, community service, and attending special events.

The Club is committed to helping Charleston community organizations, whether through manual labor or fundraising. In the spring of 2007 and 2008, the club hosted benefit galas for Memorial Hall and the Philip Simmons Foundation respectively. The club raised considerable funds for these organizations for the preservation of these historic treasures. For the Spring of 2009, the Historic Preservation Club has chosen to benefit the Florence Crittenton Home, a place that supports young, pregnant girls in need. If you are interested in joining this club, please call the Historic Preservation office at 843.953.8285.

MONTHLY "MEET AND GREET"

During the fall and spring semesters, the Historic Preservation and Community Planning program hosts monthly meet and greet events in which students and faculty can get to know one another in a relaxed, casual setting. The Caroline and Albert Simons, Jr. Center for Historic Preservation housed in the Cameron House at 12 Bull Street provides the perfect place for sharing food, fun, and conversation. Students looking for a major can learn about the Program; declared majors have the opportunity to inquire about undergraduate internship opportunities or discuss graduate school options. Or, academics can take a back seat and students can relax while discussing the latest basketball victory. The Meet and Greet events allow students to establish friendships and relationships with both their peers and professors that they will carry with them beyond their years at the College.
