Mission Statement

On a regular, predictable timeline, club members will provide a venue in the southern Atlanta area for Citadel graduates, families, and prospective Citadel family members to come together.  We will meet in order to socialize, sponsor new cadets, and support the Citadel and Citadel alumni.

The members of the Southside Atlanta Citadel Club will plan and organize regular meetings of local Citadel graduates, families, and prospective Citadel cadets.  The meetings will provide fellowship and entertainment for members, sponsor new cadets, and support the Citadel and Citadel alumni.

The Citadel Alma Mater

Oh Citadel we sing thy fame
For all the world to hear,
And in the paths our fathers showed us
Follow without fear.
Peace and Honor, God and Country,
We will fight for thee.
Oh Citadel, we praise thee now
And in Eternity.

Oh Citadel, though strife surrounds us,
We will ever be
Full conscious of the benefits
That we derive from thee.
Stand forever, yielding never
To the tyrant's Hell
We'll never cease our struggles for
Our mighty Citadel.

Cadet A. Preston Price '43

Welcome to the Southside Atlanta Citadel Club serving Newnan, Peachtree City, Fayetteville, Carrollton and surrounding communities - 2015 will celebrate our 12th year! 



  The Citadel's Newest Club   

This picture, taken at our third meeting, tells what it's all about. Perhaps it was best stated by Landon Moxley when he said "We had a great time last weekend, always good to be able to spend time with good people."

From the beginning we felt the club shouldn't be restricted to the "long grey line" but should include those that make our lives so rich - wives, significant others, children... don't leave home without them.


SAVE THIS DATE FOR FOOTBALL! 
1 NOVEMBER 2014 - THE CITADEL VS MERCER
 

On 1 November 2014 the Citadel Football Team travels to Macon to play the Mercer Bears.  Please join the tailgate activities starting at 1 pm and watch the ‘Dogs welcome the Bears to the Southern Conference with a big Bulldog bite.  Our tailgate will be sponsored by the Citadel Alumni Association and the Citadel Club of Middle Georgia.  General Rosa will be in attendance at both the tailgate and the game.  Game time: 4 pm.

Need a room?  Contact the Macon Marriott City Center (478-621-5300).  If you are a senior, you may be able to get a rate of $101.15 while these rooms last.  The Bulldog team and the Citadel staff will also be staying here.  This is homecoming for Mercer and hotel rooms in Macon may be sold out quickly, so book your room early.

Tickets will only be available for purchase through Mercer. Contact them at 478-301-2994 or http://tickets.mercer.edu/athletics/. They should go on sale in mid-September, and RESERVED seats will sell out in a few days.  Reserved seats are $12.  Yes, I said $12 (great deal if you want to sit with DA BEARS).  If you want to sit in THE CITADEL’S BARKING DOG section, buy a GENERAL ADMISSION ticket (no seat guaranteed) for $8, and we will give you a seat assignment at the tailgate. We are told that GENERAL ADMISSION tickets will be sold in an unlimited quantity, and there may be more fans standing than seated.   

This promises to be a fun event and a great opportunity for The Citadel’s alumni, family and friends throughout the Southeast to support our Bulldogs away from home.

Go ‘Dogs! 

 Meeting Schedule for 2014

Changing of the Guard

As co-founders of the Club, Jack and I want to thank Ray Mayer '74 for his tireless work for the club in arranging events and keeping the excitement.  We have been so very fortunate that Ray accepted the nomination of 2014 President.  On December 7 we will have a gathering at which time Ray will officially hand the gavel over to Ed White '66.  

Many thanks to both of you
Kind, Fine, Refined and Otherwise Highly Outstanding Southern Gentlemen.

Our Class of 1969 is preparing for our 45th year reunion.  Here are a few recollections you all can identify with. 

The first is the recollections of knob year in F company, class of 1970 - the year was 1966.

The second is an article by a classmate reflecting on the Band of Brotherhood between the Citadel and VMI.


And finally... a little humor.

Service and Sacrifice: A Citadel Tradition
(note: silence for first 30 seconds)


South of Broad: a song we can all relate to:

 


Another famous father's son at the Citadel.  We all knew about Ted Turner's sons being at the Citadel.. Now another one:
Rick Santorum's son at the Citadel.


Brian Bossman and Marty Potash represented the Southside Atlanta Citadel Club at the 2010 IACT(Inter Service Academy Golf Tournament) at the Connecticut Golf Club in Easton Connecticut.  Although a gallant effort, the team was only able to grab 4th place.  Next year..lets get a better showing and sink Navy!!


Of the 161 local alumni on record, 31 have attended at least one club meeting since our first meeting back in November 2003! Let's all make a concerted effort to increase that number. We need everyone's help on this - call and remind others to come.

When David Boyd '60, Jack Camp '65 and Banks Glover '69 were lamenting the long sober drive from Newnan to the Atlanta Citadel Club, the question was raised. "why don't we just start one down here". Turns out there are over 40 graduates in the immediate vicinity and that number is growing. So in November 2003 we held our first meeting.

Telling tales for the '60's are Pat Conroy '67, Carl Anderson '62 and Jack Camp '65. Conroy entertained members of the Atlanta Citadel Club February 16th before his book-signing for the standing room only crowd at the Ansley Golf Club. Conroy was amused that despite the "honor code", in his travels for these "signings", he has counted that he's had 68 Citadel roommates and has actually met 12 former cadets who confessed to being members of "The Ten".  "No kidding....!!!"
