1. Charleston, Citadel Foundation use 14,000 bushels of oysters in new Ashley River reef project

Oysters normally aren’t associated with large-scale economic development initiatives, but the staple of backyard roasts is playing a vital role in a pair of Charleston projects. The Citadel Foundation and the city of Charleston are teaming up to build oyster reefs along the western edge of the Ashley River to serve as environmental mitigation for construction activities on the peninsula that required permitting from the Army Corps of Engineers. For the city, the reef program helped obtain permits for the next phase of a deep-tunnel drainage system along the Septima P. Clark Parkway, commonly referred to as the Crosstown. The Citadel Foundation — a nonprofit that raises money for the school — will use the reefs as mitigation for dredging a channel to the Ashley River and construction of a pier and boating center for students.

2. Why SC tuition hikes are the lowest in years
Students at South Carolina public colleges are seeing the lowest bump in their tuition rate in years. After receiving state money to keep down costs, Clemson University, College of Charleston, Coastal Carolina University and The Citadel all have raised in-state tuition by 1 percent or less for next fall. Francis Marion University in Florence is not raising tuition. The Citadel planned to start an engineering program and a wellness center for active duty veterans and first responders, but the school decided to keep tuition down instead, said Col. John Dorrian, a spokesman at the college. “We’ll still be able to implement it, but probably more slowly,” Dorrian said, “and that’s OK.” Out-of-state tuition hikes, meanwhile, are remaining the same as recent years.
