the only military college with a REAL freshmen year. the only military college that still braces, way better than VMI, the academies, or any other pussy military school.

Citadel cadets experience an entire 9 months of freshmen year, while VMI only does 1 semester.

The half military college that you go to if you couldn't get into VMI.

"Give me an army of Citadel boys and I'll win a battle. Give me a handful of VMI men and I'll win the war." -George C. Marshall
"No Grandpa, I didn't get into VMI, but I'm going to the Citadel instead!"
