    One thing I vividly remember from my senior year of high school was seeking out any and all information about The Citadel that I could find... and what I found is that talking to current knobs was a good source of information. Therefore, I am opening this thread up for anyone with questions. Obviously I've only completed one semester of knob year so far, but I can try my best to answer any questions. So ask away :)

    Hi! There is set time in the evening called "Evening Study Period" for studying, it runs from 1950 to 2230 to assure adequate study time for the knobs. Upperclassmen are not supposed to mess with you during this time. If you would rather study in the library (I love to), that is always an option. Depending on how many hours you are taking, you might also have some free time before dinner mess for homework.

    The hardest part was adjusting to knob life. It's not easy, and it takes some getting used to. There is a lot to learn in a small amount of time, so you feel the pressure and stress at times. Juggling classes can be difficult too if you do not figure out how to properly manage your time. It is nothing you can't handle though, it gets better as time goes on and you learn to not get stressed by the small stuff.

    If you have anymore questions, feel free to ask them here or PM me, I'll try to help in any way I can.
