Central to this year’s birthday observance is the 2011 Principled Leadership Symposium hosted by the Krause Center for Leadership and Ethics. In its fourth year, the two-day conference will attract student delegates from regional colleges, senior military colleges and the federal service academies, providing them with an opportunity to interact and explore topics ranging from military to corporate ethics.

The Principled Leadership Symposium is made possible by the generous support of Bill ('63) and Gay Krause and by Steve ('64) and Rita McManus as well as The Citadel Class of 1959 and The Citadel Alumni Association.

Corps Day itself is one of the most highly attended weekends at The Citadel and includes dress parades, awards presentations, cadet performances and athletic events. A highlight is the mess hall birthday celebration in which the oldest alumnus and the youngest cadet share cake cutting honors.

The Corps Day tradition began with the college's inception. Founded by statute in 1842, the first 20 cadets reported for class at the old Citadel on Marion Square in downtown Charleston in 1843. The campus moved to its current location on the banks of the Ashley River in 1922.

Most Corps Day and Leadership Symposium events are free and open to the public. Please see the schedule of events for exceptions.
