3. Citadel cadets will change companies after freshmen year starting in 2020

A shakeup to a Citadel tradition is underway as the Military College of South Carolina shifts away from how it currently handles cadet company assignments. While the new president of the college calls this a refinement of the school’s practices, some former graduates are disappointed in the change. Starting with the 2020-2021 school year, The Citadel will begin assigning rising sophomore cadets to different companies than the ones they were placed with during their freshmen year. The changes come under the leadership of The Citadel’s new president, General Glenn Walters. In a message to The Citadel family posted online, the president said the change is intended to balance the number of cadets in each company. However, some former graduates are disappointed with the change. “The Citadel is modernizing, which is fantastic, which is absolutely necessary,” 2007 alumnus Josh Harpe said. “But changing the companies after their freshmen year, that’s something more for the service academies, and The Citadel is not a service academy.”
