This is the military College of the state that is run and administered by the State Government of South Carolina. The college provides under graduate and graduate courses to all cadets who are would -be heroes of the country. The admission was restricted to male students till the year 1996 which then changed to all genders- boys and girls. It has a complete residential portion for students as it is mandatory for them to stay and learn in the campus for all 4 years.

It has made and prepared many an efficient army troupe to fight for the nation and they have in turn returned accolades in the name of their alma mater. The reason why this has also become a tourist hotspot is that the discipline and smartness of not only the students but also the campus has been a talking point among all. People come and see how soldiers are trained to withstand hardships in life and it is amazing to see so many female cadets taking equal part in all activities.

The Citadel Reviews & Ratings

  • I really like the Citadel in Charleston SC its really nice. My Family went last year and I got to see where my dad was Stationed at when he was in the Marines. I hope every Marine there has a good summer and I hope to go back to Charleston SC again another year

  • If you are in town you should come through in visit the citadel. This is a beautiful College. The helicopter is huge you must see it in Person. You can enter any time of day it is open to the public. The class ring is huge you must take a picture next to it. Beautiful place to be.

  • Simply put. Well worth the time.

  • Great institution. Beautiful campus.

  • Clean cut at its best. Given the shenanigans going on at most college campuses today, it was nice to see respect and professionalism on display everywhere. No ragged and torn clothing, no Rand McNally maps running up and down arms (tattoos) no steel dangling from noses, no pants hanging half off butts, one could feel pride in America and hope for the future when touring this vast and beautiful campus. A quick tour showed this to be a non-nonsense, education first, institution. Having been in the military, it did not take me long to figure out that the "fast walkers" were freshmen. They stuck to their designated walkways, off the sidewalks for the most part, walking at a fast clip with a pronounced gait, and making sharp right turns at the corners. We would go back in a heartbeat and you should too when you start to lose faith in America. Different uniforms but it reminded me a lot of Annapolis. God bless the USA.
