Tonight is the first meeting of my new First Year Experience class at the College of Charleston. With 22 students enrolled, this is my largest FYE class ever!

We are fortunate to have a very nice classroom

The students come from many different states. Eleven do come from South Carolina.  Other students are from North Carolina, Georgia, Kentucky, Massachusetts, New York and California.

Five of the freshmen are student-athletes. Their sports are baseball, softball, equestrian, sailing, and crew.

I'm looking forward to seeing the students new blogs that they are creating for this class.  And their first blog posts are due next week. So we'll see what they have to say about their lives so far in college!
