Happy with the decision...

Congrats to Glenn McConnell on being named @CofC 's 22nd president. His statesmanship, pragmatism & steady hand will be missed in the Senate— Sen. Thomas McElveen (@ThomasMcElveen) March 23, 2014

Very proud of Glenn McConnell and CofC, and wish both great success. Any entity should hope to have such an honorable and fair leader.— Boyd Brown (@HBoydBrown) March 23, 2014
Yay! Glenn McConnell will be CofC's next president by unanimous vote of the board of trustees. He'll win over critics pic.twitter.com/yylqppg3du— Patrick Harwood (@cccougar) March 23, 2014

Not so happy...
@CofC Thank god I'm graduating and won't have to go to a school anymore with Glenn McConnell as president. Worst decision possible.— Margs (@mcfendaaa) March 23, 2014
#CofC and SC have failed us miserably this year. Glenn McConnell will receive very little respect from the students, I can guarantee.— Tamara Younkins (@TheGreatTambino) March 23, 2014

If I'd known I could've been #CofC president w/o any higher ed administration experience, I would've applied. At least I've taught college.— John Warner (@biblioracle) March 23, 2014
Let's talk about the Confederacy...
