Thanks to the generous support of numerous alumni, faculty, staff, students, parents and friends of Coastal Carolina University, the 2017 edition of #givingTEALtuesday was a great success, raising more than $71,500 for student scholarships on Nov. 28, the global day of giving.
The E. Craig Wall Sr. College of Business Administration won the inaugural College Challenge Championship, a friendly giving competition between CCU’s five colleges. Faculty and staff in the Wall College had the highest average donation per full-time equivalent.
Chad Casselman ’98, a computer science alumnus, made a generous lead gift in support of the day. In addition, several local businesses showed their commitment to Coastal Carolina University and its students by making donations. They include the Bellamy Law Firm, Carolina Opry, Eggs Up Grill at University Shoppes Plaza, Myrtle Ridge Firehouse Subs and area Krispy Kreme locations.
