Built in 1936, Summerall Chapel has held a special place in the life of the Corps of Cadets since its dedication. For for many of our cadets, it is a sanctuary, a safe haven away from the constraints and stresses of cadet life. Of course, it is also a place of worship for many in our community. Throughout the school year, there are weekly Protestant and Catholic services of worship on Sundays, and an Anglican worship service on Monday evenings. Cadets provide dynamic vibrant leadership in all of these services. Finally, it is for all who enter a place of prayer. It’s not uncommon throughout the week to find staff and faculty sitting in prayer. The inscription on Summerall Chapel, “Remember Now Thy Creator in the Days of Thy Youth” (Ecclesiastes 12:1), embodies the focus of ministry at the chapel and its importance to cadets who need a source of strength beyond themselves.
Citadel Chapel Choirs
Three cadet chapel choirs enhance services of worship on campus. They are the Catholic Chapel Choir, the Interdenominational Protestant Choir and Gospel Choir. These three choirs combine for special events each year such as Parents’ Day, Homecoming Sunday, the Christmas Candlelight Services, and Corps Anniversary Sunday.
Greater Issues Series
The Greater Issues Series presents two or more major addresses each academic year. In 1954, the series was inaugurated by General Mark Clark to enhance the preparation of Citadel cadets for roles as responsible members of our society. Since then, these addresses have brought to The Citadel an impressive group of distinguished speakers including Presidents of the United States, American and foreign dignitaries, scholars, diplomats, important military figures, and business leaders.

The Shako documents the literary and artistic achievements of Citadel cadets and graduate students. All submissions are compiled, edited and published annually by cadets for distribution throughout the Citadel community.
The Honor System
The Cadet Honor System provides a unique contribution to the overall developmental process of the Citadel Experience. As an integral part of Corps life, its purpose is to promote ethical growth and inculcate a sense of integrity in Citadel graduates so that they instinctively conduct themselves in an honorable manner. The Honor Code states that a “cadet does not lie, cheat, or steal, nor tolerate those who do.” The code is enforced and supervised by a Cadet Honor Committee composed of First Class cadets who are elected in the fall of their junior year by the Fourth, Third, and Second Class cadets within their companies. These Honor Committee representatives are responsible for educating and assisting their fellow cadets on the Honor System and interpreting the honor code. When a cadet is reported for an honor violation, the circumstances are thoroughly investigated by members of the Honor Committee. If there is a prima facie case established against the cadet, he or she appears before an Honor Court composed of 10 members of the Honor Committee. A cadet accused of an honor violation is entitled to cadet counsel, and cross examination is allowed. A finding that a cadet has committed an honor violation requires a unanimous secret vote by the Honor Court. If a cadet is found to have committed an honor violation, and if the President confirms the Honor Court’s decision, the cadet is expelled from the Corps of Cadets. Under rare circumstances, the cadet may be granted leniency from the punishment of expulsion. The Honor Committee is responsible directly to the President of the college. A faculty advisor assists the Honor Committee. This officer provides guidance to the Honor Committee and acts in an advisory capacity to the court at each Honor Court trial.
Department of Experiential Learning and Cadet Activities
This department, with offices located in Mark Clark Hall, provides activities and services for cadets to develop outside the classroom that allow them to broaden their talents and interests. Major activity areas include publications, events, student leadership experiential learning opportunities, monthly blood drives, clubs and organizations. The department offers services to cadets, as well, such as the Ride-Drive Program, social media pages, and community service opportunities.
Cadet Activities Publications

The Sphinx yearbook is the college yearbook of The Citadel. It is published annually in the spring by a staff of cadets. This publication serves as a semi-official record of the cadets’ year. The cost of this publication is incorporated into the spring semester tuition.
The Guidon, the handbook for the fourth class cadets, is published annually and is available online in early summer for the incoming freshmen. On Matriculation Day, each incoming cadet will receive a hard copy. This book contains a complete description of the activities of the Corps of Cadets, Citadel history, customs and courtesies, and duties and responsibilities of fourth class cadets.
Clubs, Groups and Organizations
Membership in a wide variety of clubs, groups and organizations is available to all Citadel students. All 100+ clubs fall under the four pillars of The Citadel: Academic, Military, Character and Physical. Among these are discussion groups, professional societies, military groups, athletic clubs and religious groups. The span of these activities is so broad and so varied that all Citadel students should be able to find organizations that fit their interests and talents.

The ICRA Club Sports program provides the structure for a limited number of student-run competitive sports teams. We strive to operate safely while keeping the educational mission of the college at the forefront and within the limits of available resources.
The primary purpose of Deas Hall is to provide instructional support for students in the Department of Health and Human Performance (HHP), and to support activities of Intramural Athletics and Club Sports. Deas Hall is otherwise available to all students, faculty and staff.

Infirmary services are covered by the cadet Infirmary fee. A small inpatient charge is added for daytime and overnight admissions. Supplemental services such as immunizations, medications, lab work, X-Rays, and ECGs are provided for cadets at our cost and are applied to the cadet’s OneCard Restricted Account. Prescriptions for medications not administered by the Infirmary are delivered by a local pharmacy which bills the cadet’s insurance or charges the cadet’s OneCard account. If desired, the Infirmary secretary can provide an itemized list of Infirmary charges for parents to file for insurance reimbursement. The Infirmary is not staffed to file insurance claims.
Cadets are required to carry student health insurance for all semesters they are present on campus. Student insurance is mandatory to defray the costs of hospitalization, emergency care, ambulance transportation, and/or specialty medical and surgical care. Charges for services not provided by the Infirmary must be settled directly with the medical provider. Cadets are required to notify the Infirmary immediately of any changes in insurance coverage.
The Citadel does not have contracts with any off-campus hospitals, urgent-care centers, pharmacies, or medical/surgical/dental providers. In the event of an emergency, two large medical centers are located within two miles of the campus and EMS ambulances are on call 24/7 for transport.

Employment is designed to provide for a modest portion of college expenses.
