Wonderful campus and central parade ground for 2500 cadets. One of a few private military college, ala TX A&M among others. Graduation gets a Regular Commission in a branch of the US military. A definite worthwhile visit.

The Hungry Detective conducted a drive by while arriving at the Commandants Office. This institution is so rich in history and tradition. A drive around the parade grounds will make the hair on your neck stand up!!!

The campus is quite interesting and there is always a lot going on there. Very interesting to see the life style of the cadets living and going to school there.

We visit often, my husband is a grad, but it is worth seeing. Beautiful campus and Chapel. Check out the Friday parade schedule and take in one of the most unique colleges around.

We loved The Citadel! Great campus. My son was there to check out the school and everyone was friendly and upfront. Our tour with the cadets was great!!! The Parade is something you need to see!

Will definitely love parade that is mid afternoon on Friday....The campus is overall open as far as viewing and taking in. Specific requests and activities are on the website and they do respond to inquiries pretty quickly..
