ANNAPOLIS, MD. — The U.S. Naval Academy class of 2018 will get to see their families for the first time since they began plebe summer about six weeks ago.

The students entering their first year at the academy will get to visit with family on Friday after their noon meal.

The new students arrived at the academy on July 1.

As of June 30, there were 1,192 students in the class of 2018. The class includes 303 women, or about 25 percent of the class. Thatís the largest number of women the academy has had in a class.

There also are 402 minority midshipmen, about 34 percent of the class.

The academy says the class of 2017 was comprised of 23 percent women and 33 percent minority midshipmen.
