Media is welcome to cover commencement exercises at The Citadel. The Public Affairs Office stands ready to help you.

The print press room will be equipped with a wireless connection and remote broadcast of the commencement exercises and graduation speech. A pool camera will be instituted for up close shots of the speaker. Media platforms, where all recording equipment will be, are approximately 123 feet from the stage. Photographers and videographers should bring appropriate lenses. Media will not be permitted to move around during commencement.
