Seniors fly south

Since the late 1980s, Yale seniors have descended by the hundreds on Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, during the week between the end of finals and the beginning of commencement festivities. This year’s celebration looks much like those that came before it.

By the way, we asked readers in 2011 for their help in determining when the Myrtle Beach tradition began and got some answers, but if you know more about those beginnings, let us know.
