The Student Affairs StuArt Award


Happy Friday October 20th everyone!

Wood Marchant

I would like to announce the newest StuArt award winner Wood Marchant! Wood has been serving as the Collegiate Recovery Program Director for almost a year now and has been an incredible asset to the College. Wood provides guidance and mentorship for students across campus who are working to develop healthier lifestyles. Wood’s experience in the mental health and addiction recovery field is evident in the valuable programming that he and the CRP provide for our students and staff. Last week the CRP and CASAS hosted former politician Patrick J. Kennedy who gave a powerful talk on “Making Mental Health Essential Health” in the Stern Center Ballroom. Additionally, Wood and the CRP conduct general interest meetings for students who want to learn more about addiction, recovery, and the CRP every Tuesday evening from 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM on the 3rd floor of the Jewish Studies Center. Come say hi to Wood on the 3rd floor of the Stern Center or at the next interest meeting!!!

Who is Stu-Art?

StuArt is an energetic Cougar who “roams” the division confirming and recognizing the positive values of working in Student Affairs at the College of Charleston.   StuArt’s job is to spend time with members of our division who exemplify the ART of working in STUdent Affairs at the College.          
At least one time per week, StuArt will be passed on to another member of our division by his most recent
recipient. The person passing him on will then share an email and photo explaining why StuArt chose that
member of our division. 

As StuArt is new, his experience “roaming” the division can be continually shaped by those who receive 
and pass him on!
