Redefining the World (article on two Citadel professors)

... Russell Hilleke, associate professor of physics, and John Peeples, professor of electrical engineering — both of whom teach at The Citadel — have been involved in these moments. Although you may have heard of one accomplishment and have practically no idea about the other, the importance of them collectively, and of countless others, helps to create an interesting commentary about the nature of research. Although I interviewed them on separate days and times, the number of similarities between their answers was surprising and gave some insight into the personal rewards that technological innovators get from their work. ...

More than just sightseeing on Bulldogs' Seattle itinerary

While not exactly sleepless in Seattle, The Citadel Bulldogs are having their share of fun in the Pacific Northwest.  The basketball team arrived in Seattle on Tuesday afternoon in preparation for tonight's game against sixth-ranked Washington State at Seattle's Key Arena. On the sightseeing agenda are lunch at the famed Pike Place Fish Market, a trip to the top of the Space Needle and an NBA game between the Sonics and New Orleans Hornets. But also on coach Ed Conroy's to-do list for practice sessions at the Sonics' training facility and at Key Arena is improved defense. The Bulldogs rank last in the Southern Conference in scoring defense, allowing 80.2 points per game, and 10th in field-goal percentage defense, allowing foes to shoot 48.4 percent from the floor. ...

Law school rumors untrue, officials say

The Charleston School of Law's bar exam pass rate got a boost when the state Supreme Court dropped a section of the test last month.  The improved pass rate, however, had no effect on the school's accreditation, says Bucky Askew, the American Bar Association's legal education consultant. A scoring error on one test led the state Supreme Court to throw out a section of the July 2007 bar exam and change 20 grades from failing to passing. Eight of those students were graduates of the Charleston School of Law. The change increased the school's bar exam pass rate from 65 to 70 percent. ...
