It was long and not too much to see. Good tour guide. Liked the prison looking basement but overall - not too impressed. Don't stay for the walking tour - just see it yourself!

Beautiful place. I'm used to seeing the VMI campus and I thought all military colleges were like it. The place was gorgeous and it seemed more laid back for the students.

The Citadel is a beautiful military college....be sure to visit a Friday afternoon parade. Proud to have a husband and brother as graduates of this amazing school. Love tradition!

My husband went to school here, and we were married here. A beautiful campus and a must see if you have never been there. Try to catch a parade.
