2. The Citadel opens new program for veteran students on Veterans Day

Like many veterans, when Andrew Kispert returned to the civilian world after five years in the Marines, he wondered how he would handle college life after living in a realm of strict schedules and orders.  "I loved being in the military - the structure, the unity and the brotherhood," said Kispert, a Florence native who enrolled at The Citadel last year.

....Citadel is expanding services for veterans (editorial)

This service has special meaning at The Citadel, where cadets and graduates have fought in every conflict since the Mexican War of 1846, with many paying the ultimate sacrifice. Our cadets, many of whom will enter military service after graduation, understand servant-leadership and the impact they can have in the world regardless of their career. They leave The Citadel with a deep understanding of the importance of helping others.

..Wild Dunes experimental seawall did its job

Nettles' system was placed in 2013 as a study project under the auspices of The Citadel. The idea is to break up the storm waves that cause the worst beach erosion, but allow water and fine sand to pass back and forth between the pipes, simulating the flow on an unobstructed beach. Somewhat leery S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control staff allowed it only because The Citadel was involved.

Citadel basketball preview: Senior guards hold the key to Bulldogs' success

The Citadel's Marshall Harris is the quintessential point guard. A pass-first player who would rather set up one of his teammates for an easy basket than shoot the ball himself.  His backcourt running mate, Ashton Moore, is a shooter and a natural scorer. Moore has the ability to take over a game and win it nearly all by himself.

The shining of the sentinels: a Homecoming 2014 special report

 Two aging monuments on the campus of The Citadel are once again shining brightly after a complex restoration process. The brass cannons have been among the college’s historic artifacts since 1886. They have been in their current location “guarding” Summerall Field and the entrance to Padgett-Thomas barracks for almost a century. The salt air from nearby marshes, harsh sun and other environmental influences had taken a toll on them.

Back in Boulder

Not many successful CEO types would jump at the chance to lead an organization failing as badly as the University of Colorado’s athletic department was just one year ago. Yet Rick George left behind a lucrative vice president position with the Texas Rangers of Major League Baseball to dive into a restoration project in Boulder few thought could be accomplished. “Rick is high energy. Rick is a positive, can-do kind of guy,” said Jim Senter, former CU senior associate athletic director and now athletic director at The Citadel in South Carolina. “My sense is if you’re working with Rick, for Rick, you better have those same kind of attributes: Let’s go get it done. Let’s work hard, have a good time and have fun doing it. And let’s measure what we’re doing.”

College Basketball Preview - Southern Conference

After a fairly surprising run to the NCAA Tournament last season, Wofford enters the 2014 campaign as the favorite to take the conference yet again and head back to the national tournament. Samford and The Citadel will find it difficult to make strides toward the top of the Southern Conference this season. Samford lost five of its six top scorers from last year to transfer, including first-team All-Southern Conference forward Tim Williams. The Citadel awarded plenty of minutes to young players last season, and it showed (2-14 in conference play), but perhaps the decision to get those athletes experience will pay off. - See more at: http://athlonsports.com/college-basketball/college-basketball-preview-southern-conference-0#sthash.RoqocD03.dpuf
