This week I am thinking what could be a fun and yet informative Top Ten Thursday for all of you readers… So I am thinking in light of this school year maybe I could recap some of the Top Ten things we’ve experienced as fellow BUCS!

10. Go Blue messages every week! You have to admit I tried to make them less boring this year!

9. Lee Strobel, author of The Case for Christ, came to speak at our Chapel in Fall 2009.

8. Security gets new cars with a fresh paint job and lights.

7. CSU plays Florida Gators and breaks the prediction on the score spread!

6. Did anyone ever see the BATTLE in Quad 3? I am anxious to see if any other battles break the surface before next Wednesday.

5. I don’t know about you but the Sandstorm and Zombienation songs replay in my head everytime I walk in to the fieldhouse/Buc Dome!

4. Katie Tull, Women’s Basketball player, wins Homecoming Queen 2009.

3. Dig Pink, Think Pink, Go Blue Goes Red, Barefoot for Bare Feet, and other great initiatives happened through our sports and organizations this year.

2. The Rave that busted out in the Quads during the Fall semester. (Thanks Sam and Kris)

1. Michael Silvestri will graduate on May 8th, 2010 at 10 a.m. in the North Charleston Coliseum. (and he’s the student speaker!) – not that this is something we’ve always wanted to experience but definitely happy for him. I think I’ve heard that line about 485,792.120,098 times.

This weekend the CSU BUCS went to Gainesville, Florida to the SWAMP to play the University of Florida Gators. I traveled down to Florida with Savvy, Matt and Clint. It was a long trip to drive down and back in one day. We arrived back to Charleston at 4:30 a.m. Some fun times:

  • we enjoyed some boiled peanuts on the way down
  • motel 6 with just the 4 of us
  • Savannah slept the WHOLE way back!
  • “Now how does it work that they called us up to play us and pay us $450,000 to beat us?” – Clint to Tam; Pause……”Or did they email us!” – Clint; “hahahhahahhahahhhaha” – Matt
  • frat house road crossers xing
  • Matt singing Hey, YOU There and I’m on a Boat!
  • being welcomed by some people with some explicit language.
  • Worship service in the car at 3 a.m.
  • hitting curbs in the middle of University of Florida’s campus
  • “Are they saying Sigfreid?” – Clint to Matt about the lyrics to Sweet Dreams (Beyonce)
  • Where’s Waldo? — 5 miles ahead!

Below are some of the pictures from the weekend:

10.  Because it’s a pretty color

8. Because being a super fan is always better than being a regular fan.

7. Dr. Brewer will sing you a special tune if he sees your GO BLUE! gear!

6. Because blue is the new BLACK! It’s slimming!

5. You get cool prizes for wearing your button.

4. It makes you an official BUCCANEER!

3. Everybody’s doin’ it!

2. Because goin’ green is going to get old!

1. Because friends don’t let friends go TEAL like those chickens up in Conway!


I feel like it has been a while since I’ve done a top ten…do you agree? Well, here is today’s topic for top ten…

In light of the school year beginning and I’ve been consumed with preparing for it I thought I would share ten things you should get in to this year at CSU. Go BLUE!!!

10. You can never go wrong with getting involved with intramurals sports on our campus. This year we will kick-off with our cross-town rival flag football game versus the Citadel on Thursday, September 3rd at 7:30 p.m. As the year kicks in to gear there will be flag football, paintball, softball, beach volleyball, frisbee, disc golf, basketball and dodgeball. Join in the fun by signing up in the Brewer Center. Ask for Eric!

9. Solomon’s Porch will be a good time to bring your questions about life, relationships, struggles and other issues to the room through a text Q&A in Littlejohn Parlor on September 16th and November 16th at 8 p.m. King Solomon was the wisest man to ever live simply because He asked the Lord for wisdom to lead. There is wisdom in God’s word to help us and guide us through the good, the bad and the ugly. Or maybe for you simply the ups and downs of this thing we call LIFE! We’ll talk for a bit and have some food to enjoy afterwards. Join us!SP Sept 16

8. We have 30+ clubs and organizations who will be recruiting beginning on September 1st at Start FRESH by the pond. Get involved in a club to make a difference on this campus and in the community. By getting involved in this way, you always help your resume and skill set for the future.

7. Rez Life Small Groups are bible study/small groups led by the RAs on each hallway. This semester we will be discussing the book, The Case for Christ by Lee Strobel, and then going through some life issues. Find out more about how you can get involved with your RA. These small groups will build community among your hallmates and corporately across campus.

6. Homecoming 2009 – This year there is a new format of events going down at Buc City. We will begin on Thursday at the Fun Run/FallFest at 7 p.m. over by the Fieldhouse. Then Saturday will be our Display of floats, Homecoming Lunch under the tent and then our CSU football team takes on the Liberty Flames.

5. Join the  “We❤ the Lady Bucs” Facebook group! Then come out to support our lady Bucs as they take on our cross-town rivals like the Citadel and College of Charleston, or our conference rivals Coastal Carolina and Winthrop! We kick off the fall semester with Women’s Soccer on Saturday, August 22nd at 4 p.m. and Volleyball on Tuesday, September 1st at 6 p.m. Go Bucs!

4. During Fall Break  (October 2009) we will be going to Erwin, Tennessee on a Mission trip to help with a church who is doing lots of cool ministry in their community. We’re hoping to head south to New Orleans for Spring Break Mission Trip this year in March 2010 to help with the continuation of rebuilding the city from Hurricane Katrina. We are looking for anyone and everyone on-campus who wants to spend their break living out their faith through the power of serving, praying and worshiping!

3. Because our University’s vision is that we would be recognized for integrating faith in learning, leading and SERVING we have a program called Catalyst. This is a group of people who go out into the community to do service! In the past we’ve mainly worked with Habitat for Humanity, but this year we’re going even further than before. We will be working with groups of people building relationships, doing laborous work such as Habitat, and also serving people meals. If you have a heart to serve then you’re gonna want to be involved with this. Contact Melissa Bell, RLC, for more information.


2. This semester at Elevate we’re going to be focused on the character of Jesus, mission and important things to Jesus,  and lessons that Jesus taught the people through parables. We have a great leadership team who has been praying for you guys all summer! The first Elevate will kick-off on Thursday, August 27th at 8 p.m. in the CAF. You really don’t want to miss this night of worship because its going to set the pace for the whole school year and the Holy Spirit is going to SHOW UP and SHOW OUT that night. For more info on upcoming Elevate stuff get connected:
