The Citadel Photo

Each semester during finals, cadets can soothe their study jitters by playing with dogs brought to campus for the Daniel Library’s Doggy Day. It’s always a welcome break from exam stress.

This time around – cadets are with their pets, sheltering from COVID-19 at home. Here are some photos they sent to share with the campus community.
