Welcome to the Home of The Citadel Alumni Recruiting Program (CAR)
The Citadel Alumni Recruiting (CAR) program was founded in 1973 as a means of leveraging The Citadel's fervent alumni base to help recruit quality candidates. Originally called the Cadet Procurement Program (CAPP) or Citadel Volunteer Recruitment (CVR) program, the organization continues to evolve and grow today. The CAR program boasts 16 State Chairs, conducts hundreds of high school visits and participates in 225+ college fairs nationally each year. The program focuses on out-of-state students as the Admissions Staff traditionally focuses on in-state college fairs and recruitment.
Critical CAR Activities
- College Fairs - Fall and Spring seasons.
- High School Guidance and JROTC Visits
- Citadel Club or independent CAR recruiting events:
(Cadet sendoff events, Accepted Student Nights, etc..)
