There are many reasons to attend The Citadel, for example, it has deemed to be and voted to be the number one college in the south. Though we are a military college and the cadet aspect in very important to us, we are still a college and we all still need to focus deeply on our grades in order to graduate and be successful alumni. Academics are a huge part of our cadet career to where if you are not excelling the way you should be you are punished and privileges are revoked. We have a academic center on campus in which will help you with any subject that you need, providing to you tutors and professionals to look over anything to insure you are doing everything right. There is no way that you could possibly fail at our institution. A second thing is that we have a very strong alumni base that provide cadets with guidance and also scholarship money in order to attend. Due to the heavy involvement of alumni, many cadets are able to find jobs even before they graduate because The Citadel has alumni in also every career field that you could imagine. This leads into my last reason to attend The Citadel, our institution is small which allows you to become extremely close with many of the other cadets that attend especially your own classmates with in your respected company. They become your brother and your sisters that you so desired growing up, they will be with you until the very end and go to great lengths for you. That is why are alumni are so embedded in our school because they are attached to their home companies and respect every cadet who walks through our gates. No matter how old or young we are all brother and sisters under our flag Big Red and we all wear the infamous band of gold. The connections that you will receive at The Citadel are by far the strongest and most beneficial that you will create unlike any other school in the world.
