Why Should I Join?

Every college program is battling against rising costs and limited resources, and this is true for Charleston Southern University. It is only through the generous gifts of Buccaneer Club members that we are able to compete at this level and meet the needs of our Division I athletics department by providing support for:

Scholarships:
As a small, private institution, a number of our sixteen programs do not have scholarship funding at the full level allowed by the NCAA. Rising tuition costs and limited scholarship availability is a primary focus of Buc Club support. 

Travel & Equipment:
As the cost of doing business continues to increase, so do expenses for equipment and travel. Buc Club gifts help alleviate these significant costs by offering additional resources. Buc Club gifts also allow teams to travel to tournaments and events against larger conferences, providing valuable experience.

Facilities:
In recent years, we have made many improvements to CSU athletic facilities including Buccaneer Plaza (football), field turf (football) and our newly renovated track and tennis courts. Buc Club gifts provide direct support of new facilities that are critical to the on-going and future development of CSU Athletics. 

There are currently plans for two major athletic facilities your gifts can support: 

Baseball Clubhouse (to be completed Spring 2016)
University Arena (Date TBD)
