"My experience at The Citadel taught me how to stay calm and have grace under pressure, which is especially valuable in a courtroom setting." – Suzanne Campbell Chisholm, attorney


Suzanne Campbell Chisolm, The Citadel

Suzanne Campbell Chisholm, ’04, knows how to keep her eye on the ball. Between military training and a rigorous pursuit of academic excellence, Ms. Chisholm led the women’s golf team as captain.  She was Human Affairs Corporal and Human Affairs Sergeant for Charlie company. Among her many accomplishments as a cadet, she was named into the Citadel’s Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi and Honor Society of Beta Gamma Sigma, Who’s Who Among Citadel Students, Who’s Who Among American Colleges and Universities, and the National Golf Association Division I All-Scholar Team.

After graduating Magna Cum Laude, Ms. Chisholm received her Juris Doctor from the Charleston School of Law in 2007 as a member of the inaugural class and is a member of the South Carolina Bar. Suzanne now works as an attorney at the Campbell Law Firm where she specializes in bankruptcy.

While Suzanne is glad for the knowledge earned at The Citadel, she is also thankful for the ethical code ingrained in her as a cadet. "I deal with my clients and colleagues with the same honesty and integrity that was expected of us at The Citadel. I am forever grateful to The Citadel for the experience and my education."

In her spare time, she is an aerobics and spin instructor at East Shore Athletic Club in Charleston. She is also a volunteer at the Florence Crittenton Home in Charleston and a volunteer for the United States Bankruptcy Court South Carolina Division Ask-A-Lawyer Program.

Suzanne and her husband have two children and live in Mount Pleasant. While she does not have much spare time to get on the green these days, she hopes that one day, when her kids get a bit older, her family can all play golf together.
