At The Citadel, the presentation of diplomas is a family affair for many graduates. Over 60 cadets and students had the privilege of meeting their alumni family members on stage to receive their diplomas at commencement on Saturday. A tradition since 1962 (adopted later by The Citadel Graduate College), the practice serves as a way to formally usher in the newest additions to the Long Gray Line.

This year the South Carolina Corps of Cadets had 51 legacy graduates. In The Citadel Graduate College, there were 12 legacies. For these graduates, attending The Citadel is a family tradition.

The Class of 2017 legacy graduates of the South Carolina Corps of Cadets are:
