What Students Are Saying

3.69 Average Rating
The Citadel is an outstanding college! It teaches self-discipline, communication with others, and will refine one as a leader, all while keeping one focused and making great grades. It also provides an unbeatable network that will help one after graduation.
Ashley from Pensacola, FL
A school that upholds tradition in ways such as all cadets must uphold the Honor Code, A cadet does not lie, cheat, or steal, nor tolerate those who do. All cadets are trained during their freshman year as knobs who learn to live by the core values of honor, duty, and respect. No one person knows why they choose to come to live the life they go through when going through knob year, and maintaining that discipline until they graduate, but they all learn it as they go: the fact that this institution molds you into a principled leader that this world needs more and more.
