What is it about those college friendships that are so special? Most people I know made some of their closest friends while attending college, either undergrad or graduate school. Is it the age that you are when you typically attend college? Is it the shared activities or the fact that you survived the exams together? Is it the celebrations of upcoming weddings, of Commencement, and all the things to come?
This past weekend was the Homecoming Reunion Weekend presented by the TWU Former Students Association. There were lots of hugs and shared memories of the time at TSCW, particularly among the “Golden Girls,” celebrating their 50 year reunion.
At the farewell breakfast I sat across from one Class of ’61 member who had not seen any of her classmates since graduating 50 years ago. Wow! But she said the reunion had been wonderful and that she had no trouble recognizing people or picking up right where they left off.
All of this “reunion-ing” made me wonder how others might feel about coming back to campus. Please feel free to leave a comment and share your opinion about what might bring you back to your respective campus.
