Four women have made it to the freshmen class of the FORMERLY all-male school... the Citadel.
The Citadel ended its three-year legal battle to BAN women after the U-S Supreme Court ruled in June that the all-male policy at the Virginia Military Institute was unconstitutional.

GENERAL POOLE, PRESIDENT OF THE CITADEL
Q: "ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY-THREE YEARS OF ALL MALE HISTORY IS LOST. ANY BITTERNESS ABOUT THAT?
A: "THE MAJORITY OF PEOPLE FEEL WE WISH WE WERE STILL SINGLE GENDER BUT WE'RE NOT. THAT WAS HISTORY."
The future will now be made up of women like Nancy Mace.
She's been training all summer to meet the tough physical standards of the Citadel.
CITADEL TRAINING: WILL FRESHMEN BE PUT THROUGH RIGOROUS EXERCISES TO BRAKE THOSE NOT READY?
It's an atmosphere historically geared toward men.
While most cadets now say they are willing to accept women, they admit it won't be easy.
CADET CAPTAIN JAY PEARCY: IT WAS HARD AND WE'VE HAD TO ADJUST. BUT EVERYTHING LOOKS LIKE IT IS GOING TO BE GOOD AND WORK OUT WELL."
But has the attitude here really changed?
One hundred and fifty-three years of all male tradition won't be easy to let go.
Attorney Bob Black knows...he spent years trying to get the Citadel to admit women.
BOB BLACK "THIS SHOULD HAVE HAPPENED TWENTY YEARS AGO VOLUNTARILY. THAT IT DID NOT IS A SHAMEFUL PART OF CITADEL HISTORY."
RASCON: BUT AS ONE CADET PUT IT WE ARE NOW WRITING A NEW PAGE OF HISTORY. BUT WHETHER THIS PAGE IS FAVORABLE TOWARD THE CITADEL AND ITS MALE CADETS WILL TAKE YEARS TO DETERMINE. ART RASCONE, CBS NEWS, CHARLESTON.))
