Week in Pictures
Recognition Day is a momentous occasion in the life of a knob. It means the end for rigid formations, walking in single file at breakneck speed and the highly regimented way of life that is The Citadel's Fourth-Class System, the toughest college military training system in the country.
Recognition Day begins much the way the first day of military training began back in August 2004 - with intense physical and mental challenges. At the end of the day Wednesday, May 4, the Fourth-Class System was canceled and knobs were recognized by their first names by all upperclassmen.
