Charleston Southern University is hosting a Saturday Visit for prospective students on April 20 (RSVP here). Visiting a college campus should be fun and informative. At CSU, you will have the opportunity to tour the campus, meet with enrollment counselors and professors, participate in a Q&A with current students and get the facts about tuition and financial aid. This is all great stuff, but we encourage you to dig deeper.
Reports from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and U.S. News and World Report suggest employment in the nursing and healthcare fields will grow by 26% by 2020. In general, job opportunities in the healthcare sector continue to grow with nursing expected to expand faster than the job market as a whole (see infographic below).
Save the date: Saturday, May 4, 2013. For hundreds of Charleston Southern University students that is the day that marks the end of one life (college) and the beginning of another (professional). Are you ready?
February 28, 2013 is the national Collegiate Day of Prayer.
Throughout American history our colleges have been repeatedly blessed and transformed by intense seasons of spiritual awakening. The early records of many of our best universities read like a virtual history of spiritual revival. In fact, no other nation has ever enjoyed as many student awakenings for as many consecutive years as the United States of America. Some of the first reports of these student revivals emerged during the First Great Awakening in the eighteenth century. However, it was the Second Great Awakening (1790-1845) that produced our most powerful student revivals and the prayer movement that sustained them. This outpouring of grace was the fruit of the renewed monthly Concerts of Prayer in the mid 1780s. The awakening began in the Northeast in the early 1790s and then spread to the western frontier by 1800. It continued to touch almost every corner of our nation on into the mid 1840s. For literally half a century America experienced genuine revival in one part of our nation or another.
Heather Gray is taking all her pain, all her lingering grief and, more importantly, all her amazing faith and hope in Jesus Christ, on the road.
Tam Odom has left the state. Yes, you heard me: she is gone. I’ve been told (and we can not confirm this from anyone at Charleston Southern University) is the last thing she said was, “I’m going to follow Jesus.” We’re cool with that, but where is she and did she find Him?
There are mixed emotions on campus today. The University celebrated when Charleston Southern alumnus Tim Scott (’89) was officially sworn in as a South Carolina Senator.
