Citadel Moves to Suspend Students in White Sheets

December 11, 2015

The Citadel has announced that it will move to suspend cadets found to be involved in an incident that looked like they were posing in Klan-inspired sheets. Photographs of the students circulated widely Thursday, prompting an outcry. A statement from the Citadel said preliminary reports indicate that the students "were singing Christmas carols as part of a 'Ghosts of Christmas Past' skit." Regardless of intent, the statement added that "these images are not consistent with our core values of honor, duty and respect."
