The Citadel continues to monitor Hurricane Matthew for potential impact of Parents' Weekend and campus operations. A decision will be announced by 1 p.m. tomorrow, Weds, Oct. 5. Should campus closure be required, a Bulldog Alert will be sent. Protocols are in progress which ensure that all cadets have transportation should the Corps be released.
