    I know the Citadel usually sends out a packing list in June but my Mom wants to get my packing done early. I was hoping someone had a spare list from last year or remeber things that I have to get. Also what type of boots do I need to get is it still desert color or have they changed it?

    I’d wait stuff changes and Citadel just got a new President so things are more likely to change.

    Congrats on choosing the path less traveled

    "my Mom wants to get my packing done early". I hope that doesn't really mean what it sounds like. :confused2:

    Lol I wanted to wait but she asked what I wanted for christmas and I said just get me some stuff I will need for the Citadel. She won't stop asking me about the packing list.

    Hmmm not sure how much Christmas list type stuff there is

    shoe trees?
    a dozen white CREW NECK white t-shirts?

    Boots needed to be Desert Sand color meeting the army spec - USMC BOOTS ARE NOT AUTHORIZED - don't be that cadet ...

    No you'll need much more, but quite a bit less than a normal college student.

    The thing is other than socks and underwear what is going to be needed is quite likely to change by the time you report.

    Since you're looking for Christmas presents maybe get a pair of black leather oxford low quarters - Florscheim, Throughgood or Bates and a can of shoe polish and start blitzing ...
