Attend one of the regularly held military parades on your visit to The Citadel, a historic military college known for its Moorish-inspired architecture. Parades happen weekly and feature cadets in formation marching along with drums, a band, and bagpipes. Go on a campus tour to learn more about the buildings and monuments on campus, like the Seraph Monument, a uniquely shaped structure that contains artifacts from the British submarine HMS Seraph and honors Anglo-American friendship and cooperation during World War II. Walk past the Citadel Ring Statue, a giant replica of the Citadel ring, widely known at the most important and treasured symbol of a graduate. Talk to the cadets on campus to learn more about the history of the school that's been around since 1842. Be sure to check the parade schedule online before you visit.

If you are in town you should come through in visit the citadel. This is a beautiful College. The helicopter is huge you must see it in Person. You can enter any time of day it is open to the public. The class ring is huge you must take a picture next to it. Beautiful place to be.
I really like the Citadel in Charleston SC its really nice. My Family went last year and I got to see where my dad was Stationed at when he was in the Marines. I hope every Marine there has a good summer and I hope to go back to Charleston SC again another year
