“Very Impressive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

The campus has alot of history and was very impressive. We were met at the entrance by a cordial cadet that seemed genuinely proud of his school. There is a giant class ring that makes for a great picture along with the buildings.

Whether you have a Welty of military knowledge or not, visiting the campus of the Citadel is beautiful. The parade grounds surrounded by the barracks are a sight to see and the Summerall Chapel is spectacular!

“Retreat Parade”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

Was very beautiful and precision detailed. The cadets were polite well trained in the march. The band played patriotic songs and the audience even got to participate in the music.
