Maxcy College: A Place to Live, A World to Explore

Life @ Maxcy

Wonder what life is like at the International House? Check out our video yearbooks and the photos below for a peek at life here at Maxcy.

Here we’re discussing Ta-Nahesi Coates’ Between the World and Me as part of our semester reading initiative spring 2016. Maxcy residents Ore Oluwole and Sade Erinfolami started this semester tradition.

Each fall Dr. Will Goins comes to the International House to prepare a traditional Cherokee dishes and teach us about the foodways of the native peoples of South Carolina. He even teaches us a traditional Cherokee song of thanks!

Coffee tasting has become one of our favorite semester events. Local coffee shop Drip comes to Maxcy to teach us different brewing methods and how to identify the many different flavors in a bean.

We wrap up the school year with a traditional low country boil prepared by the parents of a Maxcy alum. Try this delicious local culinary staple and kick off your summer break with one last hurrah with all your Maxcy friends.

Sometimes it’s nice just to get off campus, and we’re lucky that Dr. Snyder lives nearby – we get to roast marshmallows in his backyard! Who’s that tiny freshman in the superhero shirt, you ask? That’s Dr. Snyder’s son, our favorite little buddy who keeps us young at heart.

You know who make great language study buddies? Native speakers. We’re big on helping each other here, and we love learning together. Impromptu Cantonese lessons like this one happen in our classroom space all the time.
