1. 20 cadets punished, 4 leave after dozens of hazing allegations reported at The Citadel
Officials at The Citadel say 20 cadets have been punished and four have left the school voluntarily after 85 allegations of infractions, including hazing, were reported at the military college. "That abuse, hazing, there's no place for it here at The Citadel, in the military or any other institution of higher learning," says Lawrence Hutto, the executive director of the Alumni Association. Hutto graduated from The Citadel in 1987 and served in the U.S. Army for 27 years. He says the school has taken a proactive approach to dealing with hazing, holding a series of meetings this academic year. According to the school, as soon as the first allegation came to light, a fifth meeting was held with all freshman cadets on February 8.

2. Lowcountry Graduate Center working on several new programs
Several new graduate-level degree programs are planned for Charleston-area workers looking to advance their careers. The Citadel will likely offer a new certificate in technical program management at the Lowcountry Graduate Center beginning in the summer, according to the center's director, Nancy Muller. The center, located on Paramount Drive in North Charleston, allows Lowcountry residents to take classes offered by institutions across the state using videoconferencing technology or in-person by a professor who travels from an institution. The Citadel already offers a master's degree in project management at the Lowcountry Graduate Center, along with graduate certificates that count toward the degree in technical project management and systems engineering management. The new technical program management certificate would be for an employee who is introducing a technical program to multiple sites.

1. Citadel alumni discover connection on mission together for Operation Inherent Resolve
While serving overseas, a group of marines were amazed to learn they all share an alma mater; that they all wear the ring. The six Citadel alumni were not aware at first of their connection back in Charleston, South Carolina. "We didn't realize the connection at first, but when we did it was hard to believe that there are six of us from The Citadel serving in the same unit in Iraq," said Maj. Christian C. Pappas, USMC, when contacting The Citadel to tell their surprising story.

4. Deadly countdown: Retired colonel recalls Black Hawk Down
It wasn't supposed to be like that. Get in, secure the targets, get out within an hour and odds are not only you'd go home but your fellow Rangers, too. But it took more than an hour. "I'm always happy for the opportunity to tell this story, not because I can tell a war story about myself, certainly not," said retired U.S. Army Lt. Col. Jim Lechner, "but because I get to honor veterans who I served with." A graduate of The Citadel and resident of South Carolina, Lechner was in Orangeburg on Tuesday as guest speaker for the Rotarians during their weekly meeting.

5. USC professor thrives on digging deep into five senses, including taste of heirloom food (former Citadel professor)
David Shields rescues things from obscurity and shares them with people who didn’t know how much they would appreciate them. The University of South Carolina professor has drawn the most attention for his effort to bring back lost Southern foods such as the Bradford watermelon and the Carolina African runner peanut, but he also has compiled amazing collections of Russian piano music and still photographs of silent movie actors. Heirloom foods were a salvation for Shields. He was at a mid-career signpost, waiting for direction a little more than a decade ago. A tenured professor at The Citadel, he could have been comfortable writing or contributing to more books on literature.

9. College of Charleston downs Citadel, 4-3, to sweep series
In 24 seasons at The Citadel, head coach Fred Jordan has faced every College of Charleston baseball team, except one, since the downtown school revived its program in 1991. Of the 24 different College of Charleston teams the veteran coach has faced, the 2015 edition is the best he’s seen in more than two decades. The Cougars swept the Bulldogs during their three-game series this weekend, but a strike here or a swing of the bat there, and The Citadel could have very easily walked away with city bragging rights.

4. The 70th Anniversary of the Battle of Iwo Jima: Remembering The Citadel's World War II Marines
The Citadel has had a long and distinguished line of Citadel Marines dating back to before the first World War. On the eve of the United States' entry into World War I, every member of the Class of 1917 entered military service. Thirteen of them were commissioned in the Marine Corps, a fact that was the subject of an investigation by a Congressional committee. That legacy continues strong to this day. Seventy years ago, on Feb. 19, 1945, Operation Detachment, better known as the Battle of Iwo Jima, began. It would become one of the costliest battles waged by the United States during World War II in the Pacific Theater. Even before the landings, doubts about the necessity of the operation surfaced. Those doubts were overshadowed by rivalries and intra-service agendas between the Army, Navy, and Army Air Forces. The Marine Corps, which would pay the heaviest price for the landings, was cut out of the decision-making altogether.

7. Lowcountry police officer gives back to Special Olympics
During the month of February, law enforcement will kick off a new awareness campaign for South Carolina Special Olympics. They will host five polar plunges across the state, including one here in the Lowcountry next weekend. Deputy Chief Stan Gragg of the Mount Pleasant Police Department is more than just a cop. His passion to make a difference in the community shows. "Several years ago, a friend of mine asked if I would do the mid-winter run, which we used to do the mid-winter games here at The Citadel. And it was about a four mile run from Colonial Lake into the start of the mid-winter games. And when I ran in, I was immediately hooked," Gragg remembers of his first torch run. That's how he got started with South Carolina Special Olympics.
