In 1965 the female population at CSM had exploded to 7. Most of them graduated, most of them higher up than me. But by gosh, I graduated too and did get to participate in the Senior M Climb event. I even kept my Stetson fairly clean. My Mines degree was the most difficult thing I ever did and I am still very proud to be a graduate. And yeah, I still wear my ring, too. You see a lot of them in the Oil Patch.
In 1953, we didn’t have all the nice femininity to accompany us! We had one girl, whose name escapes me, and who found the rigors of dealing with all those men, who didn’t cut her any breaks, too much by the end of the year. My big regret is that I didn’t get to make the Senior M Climb before graduation in 1957, because I was hopping around on crutches after knee surgery, but I sure did participate in the Senior M Climb Beer Bust in the Commons across from Guggenheim Hall! I still wear my Mines ring and jacket, and get lots of comments.
