Founded in Virginia in 1776, Hampden-Sydney College is America’s 10th oldest and one of only three remaining all-male schools. Earlier this month the college, whose motto is “come here as boys so you may leave as men,” graduated its class of 2016. Here are some photos of the commencement, along with other shots of campus life, taken from the school’s social media accounts.
Note the prevalence of bow ties, so dear to the South, and the slick kid at commencement already in “strictly post-collegiate” bit loafers, and sans socks, no less. — CC
