Preparing for CSI

Dear Students,
It is with great sadness that I come to you with the announcement that CSI 2020 has been cancelled. All attempts to make it happen were exhausted, and in the end the administration did not want to leave your safety to chance during this uncertain time. My heart is invested in this program, and I highly value the relationships created in 3 short weeks with students and parents. I will do my best to contact each of you after matriculation.
If at any time you have a concern or question, please contact me. Direct questions regarding your payment refund to the Treasurer's Office. All medical information I received has been forwarded to the Infirmary, and if you want to change your major or adjust a class, contact the Registrar.  
Know that my supervisor, Col Fudge, my staff and I share your disappointment. This is not what we wanted to happen because we look forward to CSI more than you could ever imagine. Thank you for all of your efforts to prepare for CSI, and the trust you put in us to prepare you for the transition from high school to The Citadel. The Facebook page will remain active so that you can reach out to new friends before you report in August.
It is my wish that you finish high school strong, enjoy your summer, and look us up this fall!
Melinda S. Norris
CSI Assistant Director
