The Converse College community is heartbroken to see images of our great state and citizens affected by the epic rainfall and resulting floods.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to any of you dealing with this situation personally.


On Sunday, Governor Nikki Haley stated "This is an incident we've never dealt with before."   Without a doubt, this unprecedented catastrophe will leave lingering reminders for South Carolina for months to come.


We have received word that at least two alumnae have lost their homes, and we are certain there are many of our alumnae and their families in need at this time.


We respectfully request that all Converse alumnae reach out to one another and see of any immediate needs.


Over the coming days and weeks, the Converse College External Affairs division will be maintaining communication lines with all Alumnae and welcome you to reach out with any and all news that may be of interest to the Converse family with regard to this tragedy.  


Working together we can recover, and continue to lead the way.
