Commencement Week 2006: Other Helpful Information

Admission Tickets
Appropriate Attire
Admission Tickets are required only for commencement for the Corps of Cadets on Saturday, May 6. Ten (10) tickets will be distributed to each cadet. December graduates and fifth-year seniors off campus need to contact Cadet Activities for tickets beginning April 17. The importance of the week's ceremonies will dictate the dress for specific events. The weather should be considered when packing. Although not required, a coat and tie for gentlemen would be appropriate for Commencement Exercises. Casual attire is appropriate for most other events.


As with most major events on campus, parking will be at a premium for commencement week. A campus map showing on- and off-campus parking areas is included below. Public Safety officers and cadet traffic details will direct you to the closest available spaces. Campus shuttle vans will operate from near Johnson Hagood Stadium to the campus for CGPS commencement exercises Sunday afternoon and for the Cadet commencement exercises Saturday morning. No parking is allowed in Hampton Park. For information concerning handicapped parking, contact Public Safety at 953-5114. The Citadel has contracted with a professional photographer to take color pictures of each individual receiving a diploma. Graduates will be contacted by the firm concerning the purchase of photos. The Citadel Alumni Association (843.953.7696) will offer video highlights of the week's cadet activities. Information on purchase of these videotapes will be sent to cadet families. Families are asked not to come forward to take family snapshots or video during Commencement Exercises or Commissioning Ceremonies.
