CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - The Citadel is investigating claims some cadets were harassed.

The claims come after controversial photos of cadets in white clothes and what appears to be white hoods surfaced on social media last week.

Eight cadets have been suspended during the investigation.

The military college released the following statement:

" We are aware of a few incidents and are reminding our cadets to be vigilant, to remove themselves from any situation that could get out of control, and to remember they are representing The Citadel" - Col Brett Ashworth AP Marketing and Communications. 

Citadel officials say right now everyone is focused on doing their best on their finals, and then heading home for winter break.
