in Community

A small but enthusiastic crowd attended the kick-off session of ENGAGE BEAUFORT, a free monthly series of forums on topics that affect daily lives, sponsored by the University of South Carolina Beaufort’s Center For the Arts.

The forums are free and open to the public and allow for one-on-one engagements before and after the presentations.

The first topic for Wednesday, Oct. 2 was Social Media and Us: A Guide to Internet Safety.
