The Official CofC Student Traditions Book

Become a Traditions Keeper

History is alive here. It breathes with each step down the cobblestone streets and moves with the Spanish moss threaded through the live oaks. You become a part of the College's history when you step onto this campus. You are one of the lucky few to live the legacy.

This book contains 25 of the College's most interesting symbols of history, heritage and school spirit. Simply read the traditions in the book, complete The Keeper and then stash them away on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or in the book itself. To receive your Traditions Keeper medal upon graduation, visit us during our spring semester Check-In Days and bring in your completed Keepers for review. For a digital copy of the Traditions Book, please click here.
