Homecoming 2007

November 1-4, 2007

Homecoming 2007 at The Citadel will continue the celebration of 100 seasons of Citadel football.

Homecoming is the college's second largest of three big weekends held on campus each year. Parents' Weekend in October is the largest. Corps Day, the annual celebration of South Carolina Corps of Cadets' founding, is held each March.

The Homecoming 2007 schedule has several new additions, including an Alumni Jamboree, and Lt. Gen. John W. Rosa's report to alumni is moving to Buyer Auditorium in Mark Clark Hall. In past years, alumni have gathered in Summerall Chapel for this status report on the college. The new location will make it easier for alumni to see and hear audio presentations.

Also new this year are some changes to the tailgating policy. To read more, click here.
