Over the past few weeks, the College of Charleston has received more publicity than in its previous 244 years, as national media outlets featured stories about the college. While I think almost all publicity is good, the "almost" might be applicable here because of the two controversies that led to this publicity.
The last week and a half have provided a lesson in politics for College of Charleston students not found in any classroom. Most of the students interviewed say they have been paying attention to the GOP presidential candidates. But while students say they're paying attention to the presidential campaign, they don't know if the candidates are paying attention to them.
