Well up until now the citadel has always been I place I've wanted to go, but not sure how to get there. Paying for it would be the issue. I have completed my AROTC scholarship and I think I've got a good shot at the instate college I want to go to (LSU!) but not the citadel. It might be helpful to mention that I am a pretty good runner with great times and three state championships under my belt. Yesterday, the crosscountry coach at the citadel emailed me and wants to take me on an official visit where he will fly me up to South Carolina, assign me a freshman on the team to be my guide. He says I will get to sleep in the barracks, attend practice and classes with my assigned freshman. I am super excited to be presented with this wonderful opportunity. I have a bunch of thoughts running through my head right now and would appreciate answers. Does anyone have any personal experiences at the citadel they could share. Is attending the citadel more helpful for a career in the military than a regular college? Anything else I should know about the citadel? Thanks in advance!
