He stayed up until 1:30 a.m. Wednesday calling friends to talk about the game, worked a 6 a.m.-1 p.m. shift at Lowe’s in Charleston and raced to Columbia for the ceremony, determined to get seats closer to the floor than last year.

Local Gamecocks fans celebrate second title

Even Citadel fans couldn't help but cheer for the Gamecocks. Nick Corbett, a recent Citadel graduate, said he's been a life-long Gamecocks fan.  'It's been a fantastic run,' said Corbett, a James Island native watching the game at T-Bonz restaurant in West Ashley. 'I had a Carolina mat outside my dorm room in college and took a lot of heat for it. It's unbelievable. It's incredible. They did it, back-to-back. I still can't believe I'm saying that out loud.'

U.S. Air Force Academy Recruits Cadets With a Dose of Virtual Reality

A new virtual campus built by the U.S. Air Force Academy lets students take tours online and gives administrators greater control over those visits than previous virtual environments have.  It is one of a new generation of online virtual tours that attempts to replicate the look and feel of a video game, but without requiring special software, as Second Life and other mainstream virtual worlds do.

Before Atlantis' last flight, shuttle era's legacy debated

"The space shuttle was an engineering experiment, really, not a scientific one," says physicist Luke Sollitt of The Citadel in Charleston, S.C. The Columbia disaster ended the shuttle's science missions, save for the last Hubble repairs. So, after reinventing itself as an enterprise operating a space delivery truck, the space agency faces its latest identity crisis with the shuttle's retirement. What comes next?

Man shares love for music with anyone, anytime (video included)

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- From the semi-organized chaos of tennis rackets, bicycles and basketballs, a startlingly powerful voice of a classically-trained opera singer often arises.  Sometimes talent turns up in the most unlikely of places. Such is the case with Richard Blakeney. Take a trip to The Citadel's Deas Hall, which houses a gym and weight room, and maybe you'll spot Blakeney working the equipment rental desk.

Wojciechowski Lifted In First Against Yankees

What was expected to be a pitchers duel turned into an early slugfest.  On Saturday (June 25) both teams sent top pitchers to the hill — Asher Wojciechowski for the D-Jays and Josh Romanski for the Yankees. Neither pitcher saw the fourth inning and Wojciechowski didn't see the end of the first.  The Yankees came out ahead 6-4.  The Jays are relying on Wojciechowski, a Citadel alum, to be the third starter since the promotion of Chad Jenkins.

South Carolina's military college plans on placing a 3,500 pound brass replica of the graduate class ring in front of the library. Chairman of The Citadel Alumni Association's ring committee Lt. Col.

Forest Park's Sharod Hartgrove under the radar

After three years of high school basketball, Sharod Hartgrove has definitely paid his dues. As a freshman at Walbrook, Hartgrove was the leading scorer on the Warriors’ 2008-09 JV championship team and moved up to the varsity late in the season. Charleston Southern, The Citadel, Florida Gulf Coast and Morgan State have expressed interest in Hartgrove. Interest has been relatively minimal, mostly because Hartgrove hadn’t played AAU until this spring. A torn ACL prevented him from playing last summer, but now Hartgrove is suiting up for the Baltimore Stars’ 17-and-under squad. White suspects college coaches will be pleasantly surprised when they finally get a look at his star player.

I am both a proud Citadel graduate and an equally proud retired officer of the U.S. Marine Corps. These are two elite military corps I prize above others -- the U.S. Marine Corps and the South Carolina Corps of Cadets. Why? Because both espouse qualities and ideals that I value highly, believe in strongly and have long strived to live by.

Letters to the Editor -- Punish Hazing

In my estimation, hazing is akin to bullying. Bullying is mainly a child's act upon another child. When left unchecked it carries into the teens and young adulthood. Those at The Citadel who perpetrate hazing are doing what they have done ever since childhood unchecked. Making these perps walk the quad and giving them demerits will only infuriate them more.

Read The Books Your Father Read

My father graduated in 1962 from The Citadel, a proud southern college located in Charleston, SC. One of his favorite authors was Pat Conroy, also a Citadel graduate. Conroy’s hardbound books were always visible in my childhood home. It was an older house with long, built-in bookshelves. His Citadel sword was mounted just above the rim of the top shelf. We were forbidden to play with it, but secretly did. From an early age, we knew how to successfully wipe smudged fingerprints and angle the sword to his discretion.

Editorial - Holding the line on tuition

Rising prices inevitably force tough financial choices. And the steep climb in college tuition, a rise that began long before this year's upward spike in gas and food prices, has required many students to choose between large loans and lowering their educational sights. So it was gratifying to see the College of Charleston Board of Trustees halt that exorbitant course Monday by announcing that the school will not increase in-state tuition for the 2011-12 school year.

McKay said life was good on Broad Street. There were grocery and retail stores nearby, as were playgrounds and Colonial Lake.

1_Readers respond to Citadel hazing story - A grateful parent (letter to the editor)

I must take exception to the recently published article about hazing at The Citadel. In that article one family stated that they "saw a dramatic change in their son after he enrolled at The Citadel."

Well, I'm here to tell you that I also saw a dramatic change in my son after he enrolled at The Citadel. He enrolled as an immature teenager, a fair student who did not care much about anything that required effort or was not about him and his fun. He is now a rising senior who still enjoys his fun but also realizes that hard work and effort pay off in the long run.

Wherever you go in life, there are always going to be people who think they have a special right to break the rules. The question is, how do you deal with individuals who go too far? And to that quandary I think The Citadel responds best: 

Harshly punish offenders, but don't destroy them. Teach them why they are wrong.

In my time at The Citadel in a leadership role, I saw not only a college but also a Corps of Cadets that understands the difference between a tough military environment and hurting someone.

3_Readers respond to Citadel hazing story - Higher standards (letter to the editor)

Regarding the June 12 story "Hazing remains a Citadel tradition": I admit my alma mater can frustrate many of us when they fail to keep the toy-soldier environment in check for the less mature bullies within the ranks of cadets.

But let's keep this all in perspective.

From former frat boys who experienced the juvenile hazing of rush, to Navy SEALS who survived Basic Underwater Demolition School, one can almost hear the collective snickering regarding toy swords, unsharpened pencils and broomsticks. The stories conveyed in Diane Knich's article are not an element of Citadel tradition.

As a Citadel graduate, I would like to sound off regarding the recent article in The Post and Courier titled "Hazing remains a Citadel tradition." It is easy and very newsworthy to cover all the negative activities that occur at The Citadel. Readers want to hear all the negative things, but what about all the positive things that happen there? I don't feel any cadet should be "hazed."

While at The Citadel I had to learn from both the good and bad leadership. Let us not forget that so many of those cadets graduate and go on to serve in the military and some of them have paid the ultimate sacrifice for their country.

I endured the plebe system at The Citadel as a "knob" in 1961. It was not pleasant. I witnessed countless acts of hazing. Back then it supposedly promoted the "total man" concept. The changes over the years in enforcement of hazing violations has improved, but there will always be a few upperclassmen who try to "break" first-year cadets for whatever reason.

Col. Mercado, the commandant of cadets, responds to punishment of hazing offenders with walking tours, demerits and suspensions.

Sacramento State Deploys Support for Veterans Across the Campus

Veterans with questions about courses at California State University at Sacramento used to have to stand and wait. Long lines led to the registrar's service counter, which an adviser would then leave to consult a veterans-benefits coordinator, in a cubicle behind two doors. Forget it, some students would say on their way to class or work or home to their kids.

Then, in 2006, California founded the program Troops to College to make the state's public institutions "more veteran-friendly," and the Cal State system's chancellor leaned on its 23 campuses. Sacramento State took note of its neighbors: two Air Force bases and the California Department of Veterans Affairs.

Pat Conroy isn't hosting a discussion at the finale of the Piccolo Spoleto Literary Festival. "It'll be me running my mouth," he jokes.  "I try not to bore men who are dragged kicking and screaming to Spoleto by their cultured wives, who would rather be back at the hotel watching a baseball game," he says with a husky laugh.
