The Citadel Volunteers (CV):

The Citadel Volunteer (CV) program, formerly known as the Cadet Procurement Program (CAPP), was founded in 1973. Its mission, under the guidance of the Citadel Alumni Association and the Admissions Office, is to recruit and assist highly qualified high school students through the enrollment process.

Alumni recruitment has been, and will continue to be, a vital component of The Citadel's overall recruiting plan. Citadel Volunteers provide a "personal touch" to the enrollment experience. In addition, CV's offer parents a "third party" contact for information and direction.

Traditionally, Citadel Alumni Clubs across the nation have formed the foundation of this program, using club resources and hosting recruiting events. However, individual CV's not affiliated with active Citadel Clubs can make an impact in their local communities through a concerted recruiting effort.

The reason well over 300 alumni serve as Citadel Volunteers is because they feel a connection to our Alma Mater. But one reason seems to be the most abundant: Citadel Volunteers Enjoy Recruiting Sharp Young High School Students to Continue the Tradition !!

With the efforts of so many Citadel Volunteers in 2007, The Citadel was able to bring in the record breaking Class of 2012, the largest class in 32 years. The following are just a few of the significant milestones achieved with this class:
