“Being in the Honors Program at The Citadel was one of the best decisions I made as a cadet. The small classes and group discussions were exactly what I wanted and allowed me to flourish as a student.
It also helped me tremendously when it came time for applying to post-graduate opportunities like medical school and the Fulbright Program.”

“Joining the Honors Program has been one of the best decisions I have made while at The Citadel. The Honors Program has immersed me into a challenging environment where I received more than an education. I was surrounded by the best professors whose mission was to develop me as a student and a leader. Not only does the Honors Program challenge you through a strenuous academic program, but teaches you how to set yourself apart from others. In conclusion, I have much respect for the program and commend those who are a part of it.”
