Preparing and Assisting the Whole Student is the goal of the P.A.W.S. Program. P.A.W.S. is a two-to-three-hour informational program that occurs four times each summer. It is opened to any student who would like to attend, but it is aimed primarily at minority students who are (1) interested in The Citadel and (2) have not yet reached their senior year in high school. As part of the program, P.A.W.S. participants receive information on various aspects of the cadets lifestyle, as well as a campus tour.

graduationIf your desire is to be engaged both academically and physically, The Citadel's leadership laboratory will do that for you...and more! Our graduates continue to make their mark in the military and civilian worlds. If you are content with where you are and what you are doing, The Citadel is not the place for you. However, if you want to separate yourself from your peers and pursue a path that few choose to travel, you should begin focusing your energy on becoming a member of the South Carolina Corps of Cadets.
