The College of Charleston College Republicans consists of over 100 College of Charleston students.  Our main goals are to spread awareness to and enrich core Republican principles, register more Republican college students, and make a difference in today's world.  We want everyone to get involved in the elections-- especially the 2008 Presidential Election.  South Carolina is a main state in the Primary Election, and it is going to be an exciting time to be involved in politics!

The South Carolina College Republicans

"The mission of the South Carolina College Republicans is to allow conservative college students from across the Palmetto State to be both politically and socially active with other students who share their conservative ideals. We are committed to making a difference by engaging in campaign volunteer oppurtunities, educating our peers by sponsoring lectures, and defending our values in the classroom each and every day. In 2004 our organization helped make sure that South Carolina would have two Republican senators for the first time since Reconstruction, by providing hundreds of volunteer hours each week. In 2006 we will work just as hard towards making sure that ALL of South Carolina's constitutional officers are Republicans. College Republicans will also be working to increase our majority in the South Carolina House of Representatives and to elect Ralph Norman to Congress in the South Carolina 5th district. We invite you to join 'The Best Party on Campus'!"
