The Citadel Fourth Class Sponsor Program

The Department of Cadet Activities at The Citadel is looking for families and/or individuals that would be willing to become a sponsor family for 4th class cadets (freshmen). As a sponsor family you would provide a “home away from home” two to four times a month, during general leave, for one of more knobs (freshmen). During their free time, these young men and women ask for very little – a place to “hang out”, sleep, watch TV, sometimes even study, and have a non-mess hall meal (does not have to be home cooked). More importantly, though, they often need someone to just talk to or listen to them. We would be glad to send you an information card to fill out and a guideline brochure.
