Citadel Makes Changes to Address Hazing Incidents
The Citadel has announced that it plans to station overnight, adult supervisors to all barracks. This change, taking effect next month, was instituted to try and prevent the hazing incident which happened to two female cadets this past semester. The women reported the hazing to their student cadet supervisors but the supervisors did not take any action. The Citadel claims that the women could have reported the incidents to active-duty military officers assigned to their company, but failed to do so. The women's parents claim that they called school officials several times. The Citadel and FBI are both looking into the incidents and plan to discipline any adult officers if warranted.
