The Citadel welcomes the Class of 2019


Most of the members of the class of 2019 were born in 1997, the same year as the McCaughey septuplets. For them, Google has always existed. They expect Wi-Fi to be present. They are younger than the Nintendo Gameboy and the McDLT, and since they have been on the planet, hybrid vehicles have always been mass produced.

More than 675 of them reported in at The Citadel on Saturday, Aug. 15. The freshmen are from 34 states and 6 foreign countries.
