Campus community,

The following is our hurricane Irma update for September 6, 8 p.m.:

The Citadel continues monitoring Hurricane Irma in partnership with state and coastal county emergency operations officials, who are focused on preparations for a potential coastal evacuation and sheltering requirements, should either become necessary.

Citadel Football Game Venue is Moving

The Citadel’s football game against Presbyterian College has been moved to Clinton, S.C. and Bailey Memorial Stadium. Kickoff will be on Saturday (Sept. 9) at noon. Tickets purchased for the game will be honored on Saturday at Presbyterian. Tickets can also be purchased at Bailey Memorial Stadium on the day of the  game.

Ticket holders unable to attend Saturday’s game at Presbyterian can have their ticket redeemed for a ticket of equal or lesser value to the Wofford game (Oct. 14) or the Western Carolina game (Nov. 4). Tickets will be redeemed on a “best available & while supplies last” basis. Fans can also donate their tickets to the Junior Bulldog program, which benefits orphanages and foster families in the Lowcountry.

Bailey Memorial Stadium is located in Clinton, SC on the campus of Presbyterian College. For more information on The Citadel football, follow @CitadelFootball or visit
