The Citadel Rotaract Club

The club that creates leaders of character by serving the community and making networking fun.

Rotaract clubs are part of a global effort of young professionals to bring peace and international understanding to the world through community service and professional involvement. This effort starts at the community level but knows no limits in its outreach.

The objective of Rotaract is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:

  • The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;

  • High ethical standards in business and professions; the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations; and the dignifying of each member's occupation as an opportunity to service society;

  • The application of the ideal of service in each member's personal, business and community life;

  • The advancement of international understanding, goodwill and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.

What does The Citadel Rotaract Club do?

Our club organizes a variety of projects and activities, depending primarily on the interests of the club members. However, within the Rotaract program, all clubs undertake 3 types of activities in varying degrees: professional development, leadership development & service projects. Together, these three areas ensure a balanced club program and provide important experience for the personal development of each member.

Club Report: Spring 2015

Make a Wish: The Citadel Rotaract Club will host an event at the Charleston RiverDogs Stadium with raffle items, donated from local businesses, a 50/50 cash drawing, and a table with information on how Rotaract's fundraising efforts directly help make the wishes of local children come true.

Walk for Water: This event is sponsored by Water Missions International and is held to raise awareness about the global water crisis. It is an exciting annual event downtown, this year being held on Saturday, March 21st. The Citadel Rotaract Club will be participating as volunteers for the fundraiser and look forward to another educational and fun even this year!

Adopt-A-Highway: The Citadel Rotaract club will be helping to keep our community clean, particularly on Rutledge Avenue near our campus. We look forward to these afternoons together as a club.

Relationship Building: Our club continues to reach out to other local Rotaract Chapters and have had the opportunity to work more closely with SGA and the MBA Association. We look forward to collaborating on future events with on-campus clubs and local organizations.

Career Fair: To continue our professional development efforts from the fall semester, we look forward to keeping our resumes up-to-date with the help of the Career Center. The Spring Career Fair is an opportunity for us to practice our networking skills on February 25th at the Holliday Alumni Center.

Club Report: Fall 2014

James Island Connector Run: The Gavalas-Kolanko Foundation sponsors their annual fundraiser, the James Island Connector Run, to raise money to provide college scholarships to students with disabilities. Last year, in 2013, Blaise Flamio became the first scholarship recipient from The Citadel. This year, Rotaract's Vice President, Meagan Orton, was The Citadel's recipient. We supported her efforts as the Director of The Citadel Initiative- we helped raise awareness about the race, volunteered for packet pick-up, represented The Citadel's table on race day, and participated in the run.

Christmas Cards for Troops: Rotaract got into the spirit of the holidays by printing over 150 cards to be signed by Cadets, Faculty, and Staff, and mailed to the 101st Airborne Division. We hope to continue this tradition to show our appreciation for all of our troops!
