The Citadel History Club

Phi Alpha Theta

Successful undergraduate history majors and graduate students are invited every spring to join the Citadel chapter of Phi Alpha Theta, an international honor society for history students. Current cadet Phi Alpha Theta members may choose to operate as a club, with activities (including field trips). They may also make presentations of research at the annual Phi Alpha Theta conference.

Sponsored by the History Department, The Citadel Irish Heritage Society is a group where Citadel cadets, other students and faculty have a gathering space to celebrate the Irish spirit, culture, and history. It is our goal to celebrate this spirit, embrace this culture, and learn this history so we grow as one big Gaelic family. Our activities include marking Irish holidays, supporting local Irish-owned businesses, hosting guest lecturers on Irish culture and history, and participating in local events while hosting meaningful events of our own.

The Citadel College Democrats

The Citadel College Democrats (CCD) is a student-led club focused on community engagement and education. Whether it is knocking on doors, meeting legislators, or welcoming speakers, the CCD works hard to provide new and meaningful experiences to its members. Within the first semester of existence, cadets have volunteered at the Charleston Pride Parade, met Gubernatorial candidates, and canvassed in local neighborhoods. The CCD envisions advocating for sensible campus policy, leading campaign efforts, and continuing its opportunity-based approach. We welcome cadets, staff, and faculty from all walks of life and ideologies, and look forward to helping The Citadel develop well-rounded cadets.
