First Class Battalion Receptions

In January and February 2018, the U. S. Naval Academy Alumni Association & Foundation will host six Battalion Receptions at Alumni House for the first class midshipmen.

Regarded as a “Welcome Aboard” reception for the graduating class, staff along with members of their 50-year counterpart class have an opportunity to engage with the midshipmen. Midshipmen are encouraged to continue their relationship with the Extended Brigade after their graduation through the Alumni Association. The midshipmen also learn more about the benefits of being a Lifetime member and, during the reception, sign up for their classmail email address.

The 50-year class sponsors the younger class during their four years at the Naval Academy and as part of the Alumni Association’s “Another link in the Chain” program.  During graduation, representatives from the 50-year class presents the graduating class with their Ensign/2ndLt bars.
