The Citadel is a small barracks based, campus with a corps of little over 2000 Cadets. Students are enabled to have more one on one time with their professors. Cadets are taught discipline and pride for one's country as they are enrolled in an intensive freshman year. This life is not desirable to everyone as cadets are taught to march, wear uniforms, disassemble rifles, and properly prepare for uniform inspections. Many of the operations that take place on campus are cadet run and supervised by Cadet rank holders. Responsibility is delegated through cadet officers, and NCOs and most importantly students are given a firm education in leadership.
Review Citadel Military College of South Carolina
I chose to attend The Citadel to be challenged academically, physically and mentally. The challenges I have faced have brought me to reach my fullest potential and rise up to challenges. I am more focused, have greater self confidence and have formed a patronage with an elite brotherhood that I would not have had the opportunity to do so at a more traditional college. I am working toward an army contract and hope to achieve this goal by then end of my junior year. If someone is not certain if the military may be the right choice for them, The Citadel will give them a glimpse at what that avenue may offer. I highly recommend The Citadel to anyone looking to take the road less traveled.
On a varsity level, our athletics have competitive teams but the student body does not care for the most part. If were not required to attend football games, one would probably see just a couple hundred cadets. Much of this can be attributed to a long established disconnect with core-squad (cadet-athletes) and normal cadets (non-athlete cadets). Additionally, since cadet's ability to leave campus during the week is restricted and military life is generally stressful, most cadets would rather spend the day out in the city or with family than go to a sports game.

Intramural sports are pretty big on campus because it gives cadets the opportunity to show off their own ability and get some built up stress worked out. We have a championship that is decided by the accumulation of points per intramural and by winning it cadets are given extra leave (that is a big deal).
