It's time once again for the Friday Five! Each Friday, we post five links to articles, blog entries, and event announcements from around the internet this week that we think you'll find interesting and informative. This week, we have links from Charleston City Paper, the College of Charleston's Cistern Yard, and Better Homes & Gardens, among others.
*From the Cistern Yard: A growing number of faculty and students at the College of Charleston and MUSC oppose a bill that would force the two schools to merge into one university. CofC's Faculty Senate and MUSC's student government both officially oppose the proposed merger. Governor Nikki Haley has said that she believes the schools' boards should decide if they want to combine instead of being forced into a merger.
*Need something to do this weekend? Charleston City Paper has a slew of options for you, including the Stingrays, Columbia City Ballet's production of Alice in Wonderland, lots of live music, Brewvival 2014, and the Charleston Battery's Carolina Challenge Cup.
*According to Live 5 News, a $30-million project is simultaneously rebuilding several miles of shoreline at Folly Beach and educating young minds. During National Engineers Week, a group of high school students from Charleston Charter School for Math and Science got a close look at the effort to save Folly Beach from washing away.
*Business Insider presents a list of the 20 Happiest Jobs in America. Guess what occupation is #3 on the list? Here's a hint: We love our jobs here at Johnson & Wilson Real Estate Company!
*Though the weather's still icy cold in many parts of the country, it's never too early to start planning your curb appeal projects for the spring! Better Homes & Gardens has 14 Easy Curb Appeal DIY's. The best part? They're all super simple yet gorgeous upgrades.
