The Class of 1978's 40th Reunion Campaign - Join Us!
The Citadel Foundation is working hand-in-hand with each class to create a reunion model that competes with our peer schools and academies. Through this new tradition, known as Class Reunion Campaigns (CRC), those classes celebrating significant reunions will have an opportunity to rally together in support of The Citadel and its greatest needs. Please join the class in leaving a legacy at The Citadel!
