During May, our Throwback Thursday posts have been highlighting some of this yearâs major-reunion classes. Our series concludes with the Class of 1964. Happy reuning!
Class numerals are a part of who you are â in PAW, at least, where every alumni name comes with digits attached â and class logos and reunion themes often build on the numbers. Think, for example, of the Class of 1969âs
yin and yang logo
or the Class of 2006âs ââ06 Feet Underâ reunion (a great excuse to
do the Thriller dance en masse

For the Class of â64, being a perfect square was at the root a clever image â theÂ square-root-of-64 eight-ball â that has been a consistent presence for five decades, from the classâs beer-jacket design to its 50th-reunion logo. As Huey Lewis once sang, it's hip to be square.
