4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: The Citadel is full of solid guys who care for others and they are given a bad rep in spite of who they are and what they do.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: This is the nation's hardest school and if you go there you will know it, but no one else will. Everyone will think you are a immoral person and a troublemaker, but you will be crafted into a strong man. Even girls are turned into strong men as the system is not designed for them.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: You will live in the barracks all 4 years of undergrad. The bright side is you live around the same guys so it is pretty cool to be around them, it sucks though because you are locked in half the time.

3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: As a huge sports fan, it is hard to be at a school where you are judged for your enjoyment of school sports. Very few people attend and even fewer get excited about varsity sports. Intramurals are the beating heart of many companies at The Citadel including mine.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: The Citadel is the hardest school in the nation. If you are not the right kind of person you will hate every second of it. If you are the right kind of person, it will be very painful, but very rewarding.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Th campus is super safe. There are cadets always on guard and the gates locked at night. the campus police also have a great presence.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: there are no fraternities or sororities on campus.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school is more than an academic education. They educate on how to be come a leader and how to have a successful life. It is the road less traveled because few dare to lead.

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: due to the structure of the school this is not a major part of campus life

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: due to the structure of the school this is not really a part of campus life

4 College Freshman

Academics: this is the main focus of the school along with discipline.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: Wide range of racial, social and religion represented on campus. There is a variety of political views, but mostly moderate to conservative.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Very strong drug and alcohol policy.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Classes are small and you are not a number. Classes are challenging.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Students are hired faster after graduation from here than other schools. Alumni are very active in the school and contribute to the graduates being sought after.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Very safe environment, similar security to a military base

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Wide variety of sports to watch or participate in considering the size of the school

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Students take their classes seriously and are disciplined.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Given the size of the school there is a decent verity of courses.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The alumni network is great, especially if you plan on living in the south. Its the reason most people even apply for The Citadel.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: There is little to no serious trouble. Theft is low compared to other schools.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Compared to most universities the dorms are really close to classes. Living conditions on the other hand are not up to the same quality as other universities. Be prepared for loud screaming and banging for no reason at any random moment.

3 College Junior

Athletics: A good portion of the school works out, especially because cadets cannot leave campus. Yet, the gym is mediocre and too small.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: If you like a challenge then this is the school. If you solely want to focus on your education then this is not your school. A balance between required events and education is required.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Personally I live in the oldest housing on campus so my experiences are a little different than the other 4/5 of the corps. We are able to set our own A/C and radiator heat (which is very nice). All five buildings look generally the same and we are all extremely close.
