1. Citadel voted to admit women 20 years ago June 28
Twenty years ago on June 28, the Board of Visitors at The Citadel, a public military college steeped in tradition and history, unanimously voted to begin admitting female cadets, ending 154 years of male-only admittance. Although women represent only 7 percent of enrollment in the Corps of Cadets today, their ranks have slowly but steadily grown. In the fall of 1996, The Citadel's first class of four women joined the Corps of Cadets. Next fall, The Citadel expects to enroll 83 first-year female "knobs," its largest class of women ever - up from 53 last year. "You can really see the impact - the positive impact - of women at The Citadel every day in my work," said Connie Book, who joined The Citadel last year as its first female provost and dean. "They are full members of the Corps of Cadets. They hold leadership roles and positions within the Corps of Cadets. They're going on to stellar careers within the military and in civilian life and graduate school." In August 1995, Shannon Faulkner became the first female cadet to enroll at The Citadel following a two-year legal battle against the college over its male-only admissions policy. She had been admitted in 1993 after deleting references to her gender on her application, but then was denied from starting classes and joining the Corps once officials discovered her gender. Her case reached the U.S. Supreme Court. After the lengthy legal battle, she was admitted to the Corps under a federal court order. She dropped out in less than a week, citing exhaustion from stress and psychological abuse.

2. Open for business: new cadet coin laundry facility
Cadets asked for it and The Citadel has delivered. The Citadel Coin Laundry is now officially open for business 24 hours a day, seven days a week for cadets. Located behind Murray Barracks, The Citadel Coin Laundry will provide the campus with access to 12 energy efficient washers and 12 energy efficient dryers. The updated laundry facility comes after a $565,000 renovation and is complete with video surveillance in order to provide students with a secure means of cleaning laundry. Cadet laundry services are included in tuition and laundry bags can be dropped off at Laundry Services, but now cadets have the option to get that fresh, out-of-the-dryer feel and smell. The renovated facility will be the answer to cadet requests for needing a quick and simple laundry solution. The coin laundry facility will accept two methods of payment - coins and the OneCard. Students will have the ability to load funds onto their OneCard for full access to the facility's machines. The machines will also eventually have the capacity to receive credit cards. Each wash costs $2.25 and the cost for drying is $0.25 for every 6 minutes. For more information please contact the Director of Laundry and Dry Cleaning, Chris Floyd at (843) 953-5087 or chris.floyd@citadel.edu.

3. The Citadel raises tuition, fees for 2016-17 academic year
The Citadel's Board of Visitors has approved the college's budget, which includes the combined tuition and fees rate for the 2016-17 academic year. The Citadel's all-in costs for in-state cadets will increase 2.9 percent for upperclassmen ($648 per year) and 3.0 percent for freshmen ($808 per year). Out-of-state freshmen and upperclassmen will see an increase of 3.1 percent compared to last year, representing an annual increase of $1,310 for upperclassmen and $1,470 for freshmen. "To help families of cadets prepare, The Citadel provides the information below for all-in costs. All members of the South Carolina Corps of Cadets must live on campus due to the military culture, therefore the all-in costs include room and board, uniforms, laundry, dry cleaning, infirmary use, books, and other mandatory expenses not required by most colleges and universities, as well as general tuition," said Col. Joseph Garcia, The Citadel's vice president for finance and business. "Fees for freshmen are higher due to the uniform purchases that year." The all-in costs do not include other fees as determined by the college, such as specific targeted fees or lab fees which vary according to the academic major or schedule of each cadet.

4. British Say "No" to EU Power and Plunder
The political and financial establishments of Europe and the United States were taken by almost total surprise and sent into apparent shock when 52 percent of the voters in the United Kingdom chose for their country to leave the European Union (EU). But it is not the end of the world as we know it, and can be a positive sign and example of opposition to unrepresentative and centralized bureaucratic control over people's lives. As the June 23, 2016 vote neared on the referendum as to whether or not the United Kingdom would retain its membership in the 28-nation European Union, public opinion polls suggested that the voting result would be very close but with an edge toward remaining within the EU. The financial and foreign exchange markets all were positive, and the political elites in both London and Brussels, the European Union headquarters, appeared to be taking a sigh of relief that the existing order of things would not be threatened by a major participating nation opting out. Hysteria and bedlam are the only words to describe the initial reaction when the votes were being counted, with the clear outcome that a majority of the voters had, in fact, said, "No," to staying under the rule of the Brussels bureaucracies. What is the European Union, and how and why has it brought about such a reaction from not only the people of the British Isles, but sizeable numbers of people in other member countries from one end of the European continent to the other? Dr. Richard M. Ebeling is the BB & T Professor of Ethics and Free Enterprise Leadership at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina, He was formerly professor of Economics at Northwood University.

5. Letter: Citadel flag
R.L. Schreadley's commentary "Honor valor of North and South" defends the displaying of the Confederate flag in The Citadel chapel. His statement that "It is certainly true that Confederate flags have been hijacked by a small rabble of evil men" confuses me. History documents the trafficking of young Africans for enslavement. The trafficking business had a booming hub in the Charleston area where Fort Sumter was fired on by an army (not a small rabble) that would fight under Confederate flags (not hijacked) to perpetuate the legal trafficking of kidnapped people. Long after the Civil War ended, and with it the slave trade, Confederate battle flags were once again being unfurled throughout the South to fly above statehouses, places where elected officials discuss law. The flags that once flew above an Army that fought in defense of legal kidnap and enslavement were then raised as proud ensigns of resistance to civil rights for Americans of African descent, the descendants of those enslaved without rights. This effrontery was, once again, not committed by a "small rabble of evil men."

8. Student Spotlight : Rafael Gonzalez
Rafael Gonzalez graduated from Coral Gables High in the top one percent of his class. Now he is preparing for his next big thing - college. Gonzalez will attend The Citadel Military College of South Carolina. "I wanted to do something military for a while," he said. "I'm going to go in wanting the military experience, get it and see if it's for me." He is taking mechanical engineering so if he doesn't enter the military, he'll seek an engineering job. Gonzalez earned a full scholarship to The Citadel. He applied for West Point but was waitlisted because of a paperwork glitch. At The Citadel, Gonzalez can take ROTC from any of the military branches. While at Gables, Gonzalez created a community service project to tutor middle school students in computer science. "We helped them in HTML coding," he said. "To see if they have an interest in computer science. The point was more to teach them beginner ideas in computer science. It's pretty important to teach them young. Computer science is going to be fundamental to everyone."

1a. Palmetto dove image spreads around city after one year
When he heard the news of nine people killed at Emanuel AME church, Gil Shuler was shocked. He wanted, needed, to do something. As a graphic artist, there was only one thing he could do. "I can't give you a lot of money, I can't work on your car, I can't build your house," he said. "But I can do that. The art." Shuler, a graphic design artist based in Mount Pleasant, is the mind behind the image of doves flying from the Palmetto tree that is often associated with the Emanuel AME tragedy. From the day after the tragedy to one year later, the image has spread all over the city... The Citadel used the same phrase and Shuler's image to create a mural last year in College Park. "The College Park wall has been crying out for a mural for years," Tiffany Silverman, fine arts director at The Citadel, said. "Hundreds of feet of cracked cinder block were, in my eyes, the perfect canvas for something significant for our community." The Citadel had rejected two proposals for murals on the wall until the Emanuel AME tragedy. One of the victims was a Citadel Graduate College alumnus. The James Island Lowe's, Holy City Doves and the Color Chemists provided all of the art materials for free, and Silverman and her team were able to get the project underway quickly. Not only did cadets and art students help out, but so did Charleston community members, who were allowed to paint their own doves on the wall in solidarity with those affected by the tragedy. There are just over 1,700 doves on the wall today. Silverman said she hopes that every time someone passes the mural they remember the past and pledge to make Charleston a better place. "It's more than just paint on a wall - it's a visual symbol of how people from all walks of life can unite over a shared vision," she said. "It has been one of the most meaningful collaborations of my life."

1c. As the National Organization for Women turns 50, feminists reflect on progress, unfinished business
Two years after she was hired as a cub reporter for a local TV news station, Jennet Robinson Alterman asked for a raise. It was 1975. She had been hired at the same time as two men, both fresh out of college with liberal arts degrees just like her. But despite having the same job, they made twice as much she did. When she approached her boss about a pay bump, he said something Alterman would never forget... After moving to Charleston in 1985, she founded Skirt! magazine, originally as a newsletter where she tried to combine "feminism with lighter stuff," like articles about fashion and style. Skirt! covered issues like reproductive rights and abortion. The magazine backed Shannon Faulkner, the first female cadet to enter The Citadel in 1995 under the escort of U.S. marshals, a heated controversy that ended with Faulkner's departure from the military college. "It wasn't a popular stance to take at all," Hardin said. "I got a little bit of hate mail. I think someone threw an egg on my car at work." Nowadays, identifying as feminist also feels like an unpopular stance, Hardin said. In a way, she's right: According to a recent national survey by the Washington Post and Kaiser Family Foundation, six in 10 women and only one-third of men in the U.S. depict themselves as feminists, which are higher figures than in some polls a few years earlier. Four in 10 respondents in the new poll, however, viewed the feminist movement as "angry," and a similar portion said it unfairly blames men for women’s challenges.

1d. How a college drug ring hid in plain sight
It was one of Charleston's bigger drug busts: A network of present and former College of Charleston students and other 20-somethings accused of funneling hundreds of thousands of dollars of cocaine, pills and other narcotics into downtown's white-hot party scene. But the bust only hinted at a problem that's been hiding in plain sight for years: A drug- and booze-fueled culture around the college that generates enormous profits for young drug dealers even as it increases risks of addiction and violence. A Post and Courier examination of police and court documents, along with interviews with people knowledgeable about the drug ring, reveal an eye-opening portrait of audacity and excess... Inside 47 Ashley Ave., officers discovered cocaine in a false bottom of an Arizona Tea can in a bedroom refrigerator. They retrieved $7,500 in Xanax pills and $7,000 worth of marijuana in small bags, one labeled "Jolly Rancher." They found several Citadel cadet uniforms, and through one of the apartment's windows, they could see Moultrie Playground. After the search, police arrested Samantha Hincks, 26, on marijuana, cocaine and other narcotics distribution charges. Hincks attended The Citadel but did not graduate. Also arrested was her boyfriend, Jake Poeschek, 21, who also attended but did not graduate from The Citadel, school officials said. It was an unusual launch to a narcotics investigation, Mullen said. Most begin after police arrest small-time street dealers or drug users. Detectives then use such arrests as leverage to go after higher-level distributors. But this one started with what Mullen described as mid-level dealers.

2g. College and University News - June 24 - alumna honors, Recognition Day and Who's Who
Alumna - Umeko Noel Favor, the daughter of Mrs. Mary Ann Favor and Cleophis Favor, recently earned her master's degree in Social Work from Clark Atlanta University. Favor is a 2008 Camden High School graduate and attended Charleston Southern University where she earned a bachelor's degree in Social Science in 2012. In 2012 and 2013, Favor served the AmeriCorps VISTA program at The Citadel in Charleston. Favor plans to serve the behavioral/mental health community in Atlanta. Recognition Day - Men and women who entered The Citadel as freshmen last fall were officially sworn in as members of the S.C. Corps of Cadets in early April during Recognition Day 2016. The celebration marked the end of what many consider the toughest first year college military training in the country. Each year, hundreds of people line the streets to cheer for the freshmen as they march, dressed in their brilliant white uniforms, to attend "The Oath Renewal on The Citadel Green." The oath marks their transition to officially becoming members of the Corps. The green at Marion Square was the original parade ground for the college, when it was founded in 1842 in the structure that is now the Embassy Suites. The march follows three weeks of Transition to Recognition Training during which the knobs take classes examining student ethics and leadership skills and the honor code. They also undergo inspections and drills training. Among the 588 freshmen cadets officially sworn into the S.c. Corps of Cadets were Michael Conde of Elgin, Matthew Gallahorn of Camden, Holland Johnson of Camden, Andrew Laulusa of Elgin, Temon Reed of Camden, Blake Serpas of Lugoff and William Watkins of Camden. Who's Who - Ashley Williams of Camden was recently chosen by Citadel faculty members for the 2016 list of Who's Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges. Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges is one of the most highly regarded and long-standing honors programs in the nation. Nominations are based on strength of character, academic achievement, military achievement, leadership, campus activities and participation and excellence in athletics at the varsity, intramural or club sport level. Williams was recognized during the annual Awards Convocation on May 5.

3. North Charleston City Gallery to Exhibit Works by Marlene O'Bryant-Seabrook and Nora Phillips
Parallel Thoughts/Single Minded: The Art Quilts of Marlene O'Bryant Seabrook with Prose by EOB3 - This retrospective exhibition showcases selected quilts by nationally and internationally exhibited fiber artist, Dr. Marlene O'Bryant-Seabrook. More than a dozen quilts featuring a variety of subjects, along with other small fiber works, will be displayed. A number of the quilts will be accompanied by prose written by the artist's son and published author, Evans O'Bryant, III (EOB3). The works were not created in collaboration, their parallel thoughts were a discovery. Dr. Marlene O'Bryant-Seabrook, a third generation educator, holds a BS from South Carolina State College, MAT from The Citadel, and Ph.D. from the University of South Carolina. She was a classroom teacher, central staff administrator, and, in 1975, became the first African American and one of only two women on The Citadel's permanent faculty. O'Bryant-Seabrook has no familial quilters, but took an eight week quilting class in the 1980s and began exhibiting her quilts nationally in 1992. She approaches quilting from the dual focus of an educator and an artist, often slipping "lessons" into her quilts: love of God, family, children; pride in heritage; respect for accomplishments, etc. She has lectured throughout the country and her work has appeared in numerous publications and exhibited both nationally and internationally. She was one of 44 nationally recognized fiber artists invited to create a quilt honoring President Obama for an Inaugural exhibition at the Washington Historic Society.

5a. TCHS cadets complete leadership camp at The Citadel
Treasure Coast High School Air Force Junior ROTC cadets returned from a week-long Cadet Leadership Course (CLC) at The Citadel Military College of South Carolina on June 18. TCHS was able to send 21 cadets this year to participate in CLC with more than 10 other high schools and cadets from the National Cadet Corps of Singapore. First year cadets (basics) learned how to form a coherent group through team building (leadership lab), orienteering, drill, marksmanship, team sports, physical fitness and the Marine Corps obstacle course. Second and third year cadets capitalized on their previous training by practicing organizational, management and leadership skills by running functional areas such as mission support, standardization and evaluation and mentoring basic cadets as flight leaders. TCHS cadets performed admirably and took home five top awards, including Overall Outstanding Basic Cadet and Top Female in Drill. There were also five honor graduates and four academic honors winners among the 15 basics that attended. All participating cadets will use their experience gained at CLC to mentor and lead the TCHS AFJROTC unit's cadets in the coming school year. Congratulations, cadets.

7. Youngstarz basketball camp returns
Looking to keep the kids busy this summer? Basketball camp is one way to do so. Nansemond River High School boys basketball coach Ed Young will conduct his 12th annual Youngstarz Camp July 5-8. The camp, which is among the longest running in the area, will run each day from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for rising third- through eighth-grade boys and girls. Organizers plan to accept kids until the first day of camp but will limit it to 60-65 participants. "We spend a lot of time on drill sessions and basketball instruction," Young said. "We do a break-down of not only full-court games, but how to play full-court basketball in terms of offense and defense, five-on-five." "It's catered to a beginner to an intermediate type of player. We actually have our players running the skill stations, because I feel they identify with the kids better than bringing in a bunch of older coaches. We also do a classroom session with an emphasis on how to be a better student and better person." In addition, campers will get an opportunity to play 1-on-1 and 3-on-3 games and to participate in hot-shot and free-throw competitions. Young's assistants will be in and out throughout the week, along with a handful of current and past players, which has included in recent years the likes of former standouts such as Dontrell Brite (Mount Olive), Shannon Evans (Arizona State), Nick Wright (Old Dominion), Andre Jones (Winthrop), Devon Oakley (Hampton) and others. "What's been funny is - take a kid like Ashton Moore, who came to our camp as a youngster, ended up playing in our program, got a Division I scholarship to The Citadel, and now he's playing professional basketball," Young said.

1. Citadel athletics facilities plan projected to cost $33 million
A master plan for Citadel athletics facilities approved by the Board of Visitors calls for more than $33 million in improvements and new buildings. The BOV voted in April to include the athletics facilities master plan in the existing campus master plan. The athletics facilities plan includes a new $28.9 million, 95,000-square foot building that would house Citadel athletics, as well as upgrades to McAlister Field House and the Bulldogs' track and football practice facility. Citadel athletic director Jim Senter said Wednesday that the plan represents the athletic department "getting its ducks in a row" for when the time is right to begin a fund-raising campaign. "The college has a facilities master plan, and they asked us what we wanted to do," Senter said. "So we needed to do a study to find out what we have in comparison to our peers." The Citadel contracted with a private firm to study venues and facilities at "peer institutions" such as Mercer, Furman, Western Carolina and VMI, all members of the Southern Conference along with The Citadel. The study found that The Citadel has a "programmatic facility shortfall" of about 52,000 square feet, including the areas of academic enhancement, sports medicine, coaches' offices, administration and practice facilities.

2. Learning the ins and outs of national education policy making
A group of educators from The Citadel's Zucker Family School of Education is more knowledgeable about the U.S. educational policy making process after a recent trip to Washington, D.C. Two members of The Citadel Class of 2016, James McManus (Bachelor of Science in Social Studies Education) and Jennifer Clark Bucciarelli (Masters of Arts in Teaching, Mathematics Education), were part of a larger South Carolina delegation participating in a "Day on the Hill," sponsored by the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (AACTE). The two students, who are also teachers, learned about educational policy from Washington experts and participated in visits to the offices of South Carolina's members of Congress. AACTE holds the event annually to assist teacher education faculty and students who wish to become involved in educational policy creation. The Dean of the Zucker Family School of Education, Larry G. Daniel, and Citadel Professor Stephenie Hewett also attended the D.C. event. "AACTE's Day on the Hill is a premier event within the profession of teacher education. It builds camaraderie among teacher educators, education students, and individuals involved in the making and interpretation of educational policy," said Daniel, who has attended the last 12 years. "I am pleased we can help our faculty and students in education learn about the importance of their involvement in the democratic process."
