Black and white photos (photo gallery - Citadel featured in picture #5)

“I was working an unrelated assignment when I saw these Citadel cadets near the Charleston chalkboard project on King and Mary. I asked them if I could quickly shoot a portrait of them in front of it. While we were doing so, a couple of young women out shopping walked by and I got this shot. It’s one of my favorite images that I’ve taken here in Charleston.”

Citadel blown out early at GSU, losing 83-52 for 11th straight defeat

During its current losing streak, The Citadel's basketball team had mostly avoided outright embarrassment, falling by more than 20 points only once.  That was before Thursday's trip to Georgia Southern, where the Eagles trounced the Bulldogs by an 83-52 score that could have been much worse.

Citadel working hard to catch up in football recruiting

When Mike Houston was hired as The Citadel's new football coach on Jan. 9, he said the Bulldogs were "behind" in recruiting.  With signing day looming next Wednesday, Houston said Friday he's happy with the progress his staff has made in catching up. "We're trying to do an eight-month process in the span of three weeks," said Houston, who was hired from Lenoir-Rhyne to replace departed coach Kevin Higgins. "So it's been very challenging. But I'm pleased with what we've been able to do in a short period of time."

Little bit of ice freezes bridge, whole city

The problem here is, of course, that bridges ice faster than roads. It's the concrete, it's the fact that cold air blows under and over them. It's a problem to just use sand.  And it's just our luck that you can't go anywhere around here without a bridge.  It's pretty bad when The Citadel has to cancel night classes, not because of the weather, but because of the potential for a bridge closure.

Citadel rifle team's Alaska adventure includes shooting, dog-sledding

When it comes to dream destinations for a sports team, it's pretty hard to top The Citadel rifle team's recent visit to Fairbanks, Alaska, for a two-day competition. How many other athletes at the school ever went dog-sledding in their free time? Certainly not the 2010 Citadel football team that traveled to Arizona. And not this year's basketball team that traveled to Canada for a summer exhibition series.

The Citadel is now accepting applications for the college’s new Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering program. The courses will begin in the summer of 2014 with focused tracks in power and energy, manufacturing, aeronautical systems, materials (composites), and mechatronics.

'A superb leader' (letter to the editor by former Citadel employee - scroll down)

I have had the pleasure of knowing Nancy Mace since she began The Citadel in 1996. She is a lady who has remarkable leadership qualities. She is unafraid of the troubles that plague our nation. She will help solve our employment problems. She will make a superb leader for South Carolina. She is an economic conservative and a social moderate. The women of South Carolina would do well to take a minute and consider the alternatives.

If you were to ask a college basketball coach which NCAA Division I school he least wanted to work at, it is very likely that you might hear “The Citadel” as a response. After all, The Citadel is a military institution where intercollegiate athletics are not a top priority. It is difficult to get players to sign up for a life in which they have to balance military training, class, and Division I basketball.

Citadel basketball's P.J. Horgan to make his return against Chattanooga

On road trips last season, P.J. Horgan often had to lie on the floor in the aisle of the bus to relieve the pain in his back. In class, he'd stand up for the entire period because it hurt too much to sit. The bulging disc in his back hurt so much that Horgan, the top returning scorer and rebounder on The Citadel's basketball team, thought he would have to give up the sport. Last October, coach Chuck Driesell announced that Horgan would not be able to play this season.
