4TH CLASS BEACH DAY.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, beach day has been cancelled for 2020. We hope to have this event in August 2021.

Held annually at The Citadel Beach House, Isle of Palms, 6 acres on the ocean front.

On this day we would take the freshman class to the beach for a day of relaxation, fun and celebration as upper-class cadets report and move into the battalions.

Please welcome our 2020 - 2021 Cadet Activities Officers & NCO. We have a Regimental officer & NCO and a Battalion officer for each of the 5 battalions. They will work to boost morale and bring a smile to your cadet's face.

Cadet Activities has a new regimental rank this year. These cadets are Mascot Handlers who will care for the bulldog mascots as well as taking them to events. Welcome the 2020 - 2021 Regimental Mascot Handlers

[08/07/17]   I am thrilled to have the cadet leadership back on campus. They arrived last Thursday. The support staff arrives today. Training will take place all week to prepare for the Class of 2021. I am so happy to have them back. Campus was too quiet without cadets. 😁

[08/01/17]   Attention Anglican/Episcopal families and cadets!!

If you would like to meet our new Anglican/Episcopal priest, plan to attend the religious gathering on Friday, 11 August, in Mark Clark Hall in Buyer auditorium. Rev. Rob Sturdy will be our new chaplain and he is great! He is also a 2003 graduate of SCCC. If you would like to attend, email Ron Plunkett (64') at [email protected] so that he can prepare for your attendance.

Also, MajGen James E. Livingston, MOH, USMC, ret. He is one of only 72 living Recipients of the Medal of Honor and I believe the most highly decorated Marine of the Vietnam War. He is also a member of St. Alban's Chapel.

Again, if you would like to attend, contact Ron Plunkett (64') at [email protected]

[07/26/17]   Today the freshman athletes reported to campus. Those who will play NCAA football, basketball, soccer & volleyball arrived this morning. I had the chance to witness them receiving their post office box keys and have their height/weight measured. Go Bulldogs!!

[07/15/17]   The first wave of cadets report on Wednesday, 19 July. These cadets are part of Athletic Cadre who will train & prepare for the incoming 4th Class athletes.

American Red Cross - Give blood

Next Wednesday, 19 April we will have two groups collecting blood. We will have the Red Cross and the Armed Services Blood Program (ASBP) here to collect much needed blood. The blood collected by the Red Cross will stay in the Charleston area. The blood collected by the ASBP will go directly to the military theater and military hospitals. It will be your choice to who you would prefer to donate.

The drive is from 9:00am – 5:00pm in Buyer Auditorium on the 2nd floor of Mark Clark Hall. When you arrive you can pick to which group you would prefer to donate. If not, we will send donors evenly to both groups. If you would like to speed up your donation process, please make an appointment at www.redcrossblood.org. The sponsor code is BULLDOG. Your single donation of whole blood can help save up to 3 lives. Those with appointments have priority.

Come as early as your schedule allows. The mornings are less crowded so try to come before 12noon.

Save 15 minutes by answering your health history questionnaire online www.redcrossblood.org/rapidpass

To qualify to donate you must:
1. Not have donated whole blood in the last 56 days. If you did not donate blood at the February campus drive, you should be eligible to donate this month. When donating double red, you are not eligible to donate until after 110 days.
2. Weigh at least 110 pounds
3. Be at least 18 years of age
4. And, feel well on the day of your donation.

It is recommended that you keep yourself
hydrated and fed on the day of your donation.

Should you have questions or need more information, feel free to contact me at [email protected]. Thank you and I hope to see you next Thursday.

redcrossblood.org The need for blood is constant – every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood. In fact, each day, the American Red Cross must collect approximately 14,000 units of blood to meet the needs of patients at around 2,600 hospitals and transfusion centers
