Athletic facilities are some of the best in the Southern Conference at The Citadel. Most any sport is offered at The Citadel and the facilities are state-of-the-art...and a few are currently undergoing major renovations. Several athletic halls offer football, basketball, volleyball, soccer, golf, baseball, wrestling, tennis, cross-country and track. The Citadel has a golf driving range, baseball batting tunnel,and major league style matrix board, along with staff offices, new locker rooms, and top of the line weight and training rooms.You name it, The Citadel has it!

Stay Sober – The school's policy on drugs is zero tolerance. Underage drinking is not tolerated either. But this is college and a military one for that matter. We drink, plain and simple. We drink just about whenever we can. People even buy us drinks when we go down town because most people in Charleston are either grads, tourists, or sympathizers. Either way they treat us to nice things. This school earned the nickname, &amp;quot;A drinking school with a military problem&amp;quot; way back in antiquity. But it's not like we are all bumbling drunkards, we just need to let off some steam every now and then. Ok fine, some people are bumbling drunkards but you run into those kinds of people wherever you go. As an underage cadet, stay under the radar when you drink. Same goes for upperclassmen. If you do get caught, you're pretty screwed. But that's whey we don't get caught!

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).
