Sponsorship Opportunities


New Student & Family Programs is excited to offer sponsorship opportunities for the 2019-2020 academic year to businesses who would like to connect with over 1,500 incoming freshmen and transfer students and their families. As a sponsor, you will have the chance to promote your business to incoming students before they arrive on campus as well as during their orientation and transition programs. This is an important time for new students as they learn about Charleston and the surrounding communities. We look forward to strengthening our relationship and working with your business through our sponsorship program!
