  • What relationship does the Spirit of the Code have to the Code itself?
  • The Spirit of the Code should change the way we live our lives, during and after our time at The Citadel. It is designed to train cadets to live honorably both on and off campus.

Spirit of the Honor Code
  • Though the Honor Code serves as the minimal standard it also:
    • Embraces truthfulness in its aspects of cadet life – prohibits lying
    • Calls for complete fairness in human relations and personal endeavors – prohibits cheating
    • Requires respect for the person and property of others
    • - prohibits stealing
    • Demands a personal commitment to uphold the ethical standards of The Citadel – prohibits toleration of unethical acts

Live by the Spirit of the Code and

live “above the common level of life”

case study 1
Case Study 1
  • A knob and several of his classmates stumble in from general leave highly intoxicated.  One of the knobs is missing his cover and another does not have his blouse entirely zipped.  The senior on guard stops the knobs and pulls them off to the side.  He smells the alcohol on their breath and asks if they have been drinking.  Knob X replies that he has not been drinking, but the senior knows that this can not be the case because he smells the alcohol on the knob’s breath and the words were slurred.  The senior then asks Knob X if he is underage, and the knob replied that he was twenty one.  The OG takes the knobs names down and releases them to their rooms.  He investigates further only to discover that the Knob X is not twenty-one, and therefore lied to him.  He pulls the knob for the honor violation of lying about both drinking and his age.
case study 1 review
Case Study 1 Review
  • Did the OG ask the knobs an improper question?
  • Technically no, The OG has probable cause, but could he have asked the question better?
  • Was he justified in Pulling the knobs for an Honor Violation?
  • Yes, the knobs lied to two questions.
case study 2
Case Study 2
  • A 2d class cadet, Cadet A, had a fake ID. While on leave on Parents Day Weekend, that cadet purchased some beer. A few minutes later, the bartended asked the cadet for proof of his age, and Cadet A showed the fake ID. The bartender served him a few more beers, but then became suspicious when he noticed the name on the cadet’s credit card (for running a tab) did not match the name on the ID the cadet had shown, so the bartender confiscated the ID and reported the incident to Citadel Public Safety. At an honor court hearing, Cadet A claimed there was no violation—he had been served the beer before he had been asked for the ID.

Did Cadet A commit an honor violation?

case study 2 review
Case Study 2 Review
  • Yes Cadet A committed an Honor Violation, The court found Cadet A guilty of using a fake ID. Regardless of whether he showed the ID before or after purchase, he used the fake ID to prove that he was of age to drink legally, when in fact he was not.
case study 3
Case Study 3
  • Cadet B is serving punishments and is restricted to campus. It is Sunday, and Cadet B has just spent a long day Saturday marching Tours. Cadet B simply wants to sleep and does not feel like waking up every hour to sign the Restrictions Sheets. Cadet B decides to write "Sleeping" next to his name and draw an arrow to indicate that he will be sleeping for the entire period of Restrictions. Sure enough, Cadet B sleeps the entire day, missing all of the ten-minute windows during which he is supposed to be signing the Restrictions Sheets. At the end of the day, the Weekend Duty Senior in Cadet B's Company notices what Cadet B has done. The Weekend Duty Senior notifies her Company Honor Representatives and Cadet B is formally accused of the Honor Violation of Lying.
  • Has Cadet B committed an honor violation?
case study 3 review
Case Study 3 Review
  • Cadet B is found not guilty of the Honor Violation of Lying. Cadet B forward-signed his Restrictions for the entire period and he was not at the Duty Location during the ten-minute windows to sign. However, he was in his room sleeping as he had indicated on the Restrictions Sheet. "Sleeping" is not administratively acceptable, but it is not lying as long as that is what the individual is doing.
case study 4
Case Study 4
  • Cadet Y submitted a special leave. As justification, she indicated she had to attend Air Force Reserve drill that weekend. Cadet Y asked to leave Friday at 1200 (missing parade) to attend the drill. There was no further elaboration. Her unit drilled at Shaw AFB at Sumter, SC. The leave was granted. Cadet X saw Y at a party at Folly Beach that evening with her boy friend. Cadet X, commander of Cadet Y's company, had signed off on the leave, so he asked Cadet Y why she was not at reserve drill. Y said it did not start until 0800 the following morning. Cadet X turned in Cadet Y for an honor violation, feeling she had gotten out of parade and lunch formations under false pretenses.
  • Is what Cadet Y did a honor violation?
case study 4 review
Case Study 4 Review
  • Yes. The court determined that Cadet Y had not told the full truth when she submitted her request for leave. By asking to leave at 1200 for reserve drill, she was leaving the impression that (1) either the unit was of such distance that she had to leave early as it would be impossible to make the drill if she left after parade on Friday or Saturday morning, or (2) she had a drill assembly that evening, a common practice. By being intentionally vague on the leave request, she was getting out of duties/formations that she was otherwise not entitled to. Had she written on the leave that her drill started at 0800 Saturday, the request to leave before parade would have been denied. She had ample time to drive two hours to Sumter after parade.
