The College Community Coalition, which is made up of the Charleston Southern, the College of Charleston, The Citadel, and Trident Technical College, was founded to address the issue of underage drinking among college students and to promote alcohol and drug-free student activities.
The party will feature live music with Leslie, Owen Beverly and Evoka. There will be free food and non-alcoholic beverages, a rock climbing wall, a mechanical bull and prizes. Also contributing to the evening’s events are Aramark, Coca-Cola, Palmetto Lowcountry Behavioral Health, the College of Charleston Bookstore and Cougar Activities Board.
