Parents' weekend coming up for Ctiadel cadets

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- It was only a few weeks ago that parents dropped off their cadets at The Citadel, but now they're being invited back for Parents' Weekend.

Parents, family, friends and alumni will be greeted on campus Oct. 4-6 for the promotion of the freshmen to cadet privates and their induction into the South Carolina Corps of Cadets. There will also be a ceremony to present class rings to the senior class.

On Saturday morning, there will be a military dress parade for the parents. During the weekend, all of the academic departments will hold open houses to allow parents and families to visit the barracks, the cadet rooms, watch the Kelly Cup, and listen to the regimental band.

The weekend is capped off with a home football game at Johnson Hagood Stadium.
