It is our aim to begin 2020 Fall Semester on time in August, and in-person. Our first priority throughout this crisis was, and will remain, the health and safety of everyone. Our staff continues studying best practices, and we are learning a lot from the Marines as they stage recruits on campus for observation before shipping to Parris Island for boot camp. Although we are proud to serve this important national security mission, it’s important we set conditions for the return of The South Carolina Corps of Cadets and the in-person experience for which The Citadel is known.
