The South Carolina Corps of Cadets Class of 2021

After a year like no other, and a successful return to campus for both semesters, more than 560 members of the South Carolina Corps of Cadets accepted diplomas during The Citadel’s commencement ceremonies on Saturday, May 8 in McAlister Field House.

About 27% of the class accepted commissions as U.S. military officers just prior to graduation.

Graduates accepted their diploma from President of The Citadel Gen. Glenn W. Walters, USMC (Ret.), Class of 1979.

As once of his last official acts, the outgoing Commandant of Cadets, CAPT. Eugene Paluso, USN (Ret.), ’89, served as the 2021 commencement speaker for both morning and afternoon ceremonies.

The top academic programs for the Class of 2021 included business administration, criminal justice, intelligence and cyber security, mechanical engineering, civil engineering and political science.
