Old Haunts, Old Friends

Over at the DG, I write about my college reunion.

Here's an excerpt:

"Over Memorial Day, I attended my 15-year college reunion.

Well, technically it was my 14th.

My alma mater holds reunions in clusters, which means that the reunion for my class — 1998 — coincides with reunions for the class of 1996 and 1997. This approach makes sense: Getting to northeast Ohio presents something of a logistical challenge for many grads, and combining reunions ensures that more than 15 people show up. My friends in Denver and Seattle decided not to make the trip this year, largely because of the expense.

Of course, there are plenty of people who just aren’t into the whole reunion concept — who don’t want to go back, or don’t see the point of it. I respect this point of view, but have a much different perspective: College was one of my more formative periods and I can’t imagine never setting foot on campus again."
