The College of Charleston celebrates all CofC families by recognizing a Cougar Family of the Year.  This award is intended to celebrate the supportive role families play in the lives of students and the College community.  Honoring outstanding parents/families helps remind us that families are an essential part of the support network for our students.

A panel of judges reviewed the submissions based on Creativity, Family Support, Enthusiasm, and Cougar Pride.  During Family Weekend, March 2-4, 2018, the recipients of the Cougar Family of the Year award will receive:

  1. Complimentary registration for your family (up to 3 members, not including your current CofC student) to Family Weekend.  If your family has already registered, you will be reimbursed. 
  2. Accommodation for up to 4 people (2 rooms) for 2 nights in historic downtown Charleston.
  3. Private Carriage Tour of Charleston for up to 4 people.

Even if your submission was not chosen, we hope you and your family will use our upcoming Family Weekend to share some "quality time" celebrating your wonderful CofC family.
