What about your time at The Citadel had the most positive impact on your career or life?
My time at The Citadel was one of the greatest challenges I ever had to overcome; I believe it definitely helped with my resilience not only in the military service, but in life.

Why should young women consider attending The Citadel?
For the challenge. Just as I did she will gain a real sense of accomplishment. In the end she will look back and see all the obstacles that initially seemed insurmountable were just a small bump in a very long road.
