On the other hand, because The Citadel is a military school, the dining experience for student cadets is quite different.  Ward Scheindlinger, director of dining services at The Citadel, explains that all cadets eat breakfast, lunch and dinner at the same time, served "family-style" in the mess hall.  Eating meals together contributes to the tight-knit community among cadets. Family-style meals resemble how they might eat at home with their parents and siblings...

Going to college in a combat zone

When Sgt. 1st Class Rodney Varner’s workday ended he went to college, taking classes in religion, math, environmental science and persuasive writing.  But Varner never set foot on campus. Instead, he turned on his laptop computer and connected to the Internet from a military base in Afghanistan.  Taking advantage of the Army’s online education program, Varner is just one of thousands of soldiers who have pursued degrees while serving in combat zones and bases around the world.  After just three years, the program called GoArmyEd now serves 96,000 troops enrolled in some 200,000 courses taught by 145 accredited colleges and universities, including the University of South Carolina and Midlands Technical College.

Lasting bonds formed during Hudson landing

Three minutes after geese choked the engines of U.S. Airways Flight 1549, the Charlotte-bound aircraft was skimming down the surface of the Hudson River. All 155 souls aboard survived.  Its perfect ditching uplifted a nation unsettled by economic strife. On Jan.15, we were just looking for a little light amid the gloom. Instead, we got a miracle. ... Three minutes doesn't sound like much, but it can seem like a lifetime when you're suspended between heaven and earth, life and death. Hood, a Citadel graduate and former Marine who served in Operation Desert Storm, is philosophical about the lessons he carried out of the Hudson.

More Cuts for Colleges Are Likely Even After States Pass Budgets

A few weeks after wrapping up their budgets for the new fiscal year, lawmakers in some states already expect a new round of spending cuts, including to higher education, as tax revenues continue to fall.  Estimates of states' revenue shortfalls have grown worse since the spring, reaching a total of nearly $143-billion when most states began the 2010 fiscal year, on July 1, according to a survey by the National Conference of State Legislatures. But at least 11 states are already expecting to make midyear cuts, totaling more than $22-billion, according to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, an advocacy group.

New home for crafts college (editorial)

What looks good for Charleston's East Central neighborhood also looks good for the American College of the Building Arts.
The neighborhood, near the foot of the Cooper River bridge, would benefit by the city's lease of the now-empty Trolley Barn to the college. The facility, built in 1897, is in need of considerable repair and retrofitting that the college could undertake as part of its academic mission. That work would support the city's larger plans to redevelop the area.

Program sees value in collecting oral history

When studying history, nothing equals having an eyewitness description of events, said Kerry Taylor, director of the oral history program at The Citadel. That's why oral history projects are increasing around the Lowcountry and across the nation. 
For a long time, history collected from average individuals during oral history projects got very little respect from academic historians, Taylor said. Some academic historians still are suspicious of oral history because the stories that result often are not subject to scrutiny.  More people are beginning to see the value of oral history, he said.

Accused officers turn to ‘cop-turned-lawyer’

When three state troopers were charged last year with using excessive force against fleeing motorists, they turned to John O’Leary ('66) to defend them in their federal civil rights cases.  Over the past 20 years, the 64-year-old Columbia attorney — an ex-cop and former director of the S.C. Criminal Justice Academy — has built a statewide reputation for getting police officers out of trouble, or at least minimizing their punishment.

The Archie China Controversy

...a book published in 1941 by Beatrice Jefferson titled “Small Town Murder” would create more controversy than any text ever written in our town. The title of the book was remarkably similar to the events surrounding the death of Dr. Archie China. The text, supposedly based on a fictional character, town and murder, focused attention on the most sensational event to occur in this sleepy southern hamlet in 1924. ...The younger China was a member of the first class of graduates from the Citadel following the Civil War.

Sanford’s affair: How to mismanage a crisis

There is a politician’s playbook for coping with an extramarital affair that explodes into scandal.  But Mark Sanford did not operate from that playbook. Instead, the embattled S.C. governor took a different course — to disastrous effect, those who have managed communications for politicians said last week.  “He’s made a lot of the classic mistakes you make in a crisis,” said Shell Suber ('89), the former political director for U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham’s re-election campaign who now works as a Columbia-based strategist with the Felkel Group. “
