The Citadel is making a change in an effort to attract more female cadets.
The military college in Charleston, S.C., has changed its rules about grooming, according to a news release from The Citadel.
Part of the adjusted grooming rules will mean “fourth-class female cadets” are no longer required to cut their hair “at matriculation,” The Citadel reported. The changes to the college’s Blue Book, its list of regulations, will be in place for the 2019-2020 academic year.
