Only 46 and a butt days until Graduation for the Class of 2012 and the Long Gray Line extends just a little bit further. Between now and then, we’ll be welcoming back the classes of 1937, 1942, 1947, 1952, 1957, 1962, and 1967 for their reunions as well as recognizing this year’s Distinguished Graduates. And this week, representation from the Class of 1965 will be present as the Class of 2015 unveils its class crest. (Be sure to watch Cadet News for a photo and description of the crest.) Soon it will be time to welcome the Class of 2016!
