The first weekend in November will hold one of The Citadel’s biggest events on campus — Homecoming 2023 — hosted by The Citadel Alumni Association.
Alumni of all ages will return to their alma mater with a special celebration for the Class of 1973, who will be celebrating their 50th reunion. Other classes marking milestone reunions include those ending in ‘3 and ‘8.
Homecoming festivities will begin on Thursday, Nov. 2, including a football game versus Mercer, an Air Force ROTC sponsored flyby during the football game, parades and more.
Parking on campus is extremely limited. Carpooling or travelling to campus via taxi, Uber, Lyft or other service is highly recommended.
