Statement from the college's president
A social media posting, which I find offensive and disturbing, was brought to my attention this morning. It shows an upper class cadet in front of seven cadets with pillowcases over their heads. In accordance with College policy, we immediately began suspension proceedings for those cadets known to be involved, and we are continuing to investigate this incident. Preliminary reports are cadets were singing Christmas carols as part of a "Ghosts of Christmas Past" skit. These images are not consistent with our core values of honor, duty and respect.
We will provide more information upon completion of the investigation.
Lt. Gen. John W. Rosa, USAF (Ret.)
President, The Citadel
