BUCSAFE Update from the President

Let me be the first to say how much I appreciate all of your patience and understanding as we continue the journey to the end of the pandemic.

Given the current surge of COVID-19 cases in our area; the relative scarcity of testing resources in the Charleston area; limited on-campus isolation/quarantine housing for students because of this surge; and the ability of our university infection control coordinator to maintain timely notification to individuals impacted by the rapid rise in cases, we have decided to decentralize […]

What a difference a week makes!  In a matter of just a few days, our quarantine and isolation numbers have increased to the highest level we’ve seen thus far during the pandemic. This comes as no surprise to us, given the nature of the Omicron variant and the fact that our community transmission levels remain […]

In one week, we have transitioned to colder weather, Christmas décor, and a three percent increase in Community Immunity at CSU! Wow! So many of you uploaded your proof of vaccination or recent recovery from COVID, and for that I am thankful.   The University Pandemic Task Force has randomly selected the winners of three Amazon gift cards […]

BUCSAFE Update from the President

As we approach Thanksgiving, I can’t help but to give thanks to our Creator for how far we’ve come together. Thanks to a slow but steady increase in Community Immunity numbers and a decline in community COVID transmission, we have intentionally ramped up activities on campus. Buctober was a blast on Friday night, and I’m looking forward to everything November has in store. The University Pandemic Task Force has approved […]

What an amazing whirlwind of a week! With Bucs young and old connecting through camping, kickball, parade, tailgating, and watching our BUCS WIN, our campus was the liveliest it has been since before the pandemic. I’ve heard so many comments about how it was the “best Homecoming ever,” and I agree. I look forward to more of that in the coming […]
