You probably use downtown street signs all the time. But you might not realize that many of the signs downtown also bear the name of the neighborhood and unique design touches. Well today, the College of Charleston area started getting some new signs marking the ever-expanding Cougar quarter.
The new maroon signs with white writing also bear the College’s new-ish Gil Shuler-designed logo. The city worked with the College to design and approve the new signs.
In a post on CofC Today today, school officials said the signs were going up at several intersections in the area: Calhoun at St. Philip, St. Philip at George, St. Philip at Liberty, St. Philip at Wentworth, Wentworth at Glebe, Wentworth at Coming, Coming at George, Coming at Bull, Coming at Calhoun, and George at Glebe.

We first spotted the signs on Twitter when city Transportation Department director Keith Benjamin excitedly posted a pic of one after getting a first-look.
CofC and Benjamin say that the updated signs are part of efforts to better identify the College area.
