Baha'i Club
The Baha'i Club is a student group whose membership is not confined to members of the Baha'i Faith.  It organizes diverse activities open to all.  Its main purposes are to bring people together in a spirit of friendship, to promote independent and unprejudiced thinking, to foster unity among different racial, ethnic and religious groups on campus, and to collaborate with organizations having similar aims. In the Baha'i Club, we discuss and act on issues of world peace, spirituality and religion, and the progress of humanity in all fields.  We give the College of Charleston community a forum for tolerant, informed discussion of the things that really matter,

We believe that knowing and serving Jesus Christ is the highest privilege we have in life.

Cru at the College of Charleston is an inter-denominational, student-led group that exists to love the campus, help students grow in their relationship with God, and launch men and women into a lifelong adventure with Jesus Christ.

Campus Outreach (CO)
Our mission is "Glorifying God by Building Laborers on the College Campus for the Lost World." We seek to follow Jesus' model of loving the masses while investing in a few in order to reach the nations. This discipleship takes place through life-on-life relationships, as college men and women come to know Christ and then mature in their relationship with Him. Our desire is for our graduates to labor for a lifetime within their families and careers throughout the world.

IMPACT CofC

InterVarsity Christian Fellowship (IV)
Most simply put, we are a community of grace engaging all of life.
We are a COMMUNITY. A group of us is almost always better than just one of us. Specifically, we are a community of GRACE. We’re for each other. We love because we are loved by Father, Son & Holy Spirit. And this Love compels us to ENGAGE life. Love leads to action, not apathy. We are participants, not observers.  We’re talking ALL OF LIFE. Not just the good & easy parts.

The Journey (Presbyterian)
Journey is a worshiping community that offers students from all denominations, the spiritually curious, and skeptics the opportunity to explore deeper questions of faith and philosophy while at college. We are open-minded, thoughtful, and committed to advancing the Gospel and glorifying God in our daily lives. Journey is a unique atmosphere that seeks to make every student -- no matter what are his or her views -- feel unconditionally welcomed and accepted. Following worship and the message we have Q&A (you can ask anything, really!) and table discussion with our peers. Come work through life's most important questions -- together!

Muslim Student Association

Orthodox Christian Fellowship (OCF)

Reformed University Fellowship
RUF is a Christian campus ministry committed to helping students develop a love for God and the world he created. We want students to develop hearts and minds prepared to think biblically so they are free to live with wisdom during the college years and beyond. Reformed University Fellowship (RUF) is committed to the truth of Christianity and the hope it offers the university and its students. We are the campus ministry of the Presbyterian Church in America, but welcome all students who are interested in wrestling with what they believe and how it affects their lives – both "convinced" and "unconvinced" alike. So if you have a sincere desire to ask questions and find answers about "true spirituality," you are welcome at RUF.

A free and responsible search for truth and meaning; 5. The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large; 6.

We believe real life is found when you give it away in the context of a community of people following Christ!
