Reunion musings, anticipation, thoughts…

I’m now about a month away from a trip back into time – to the 50th reunion of my college class.  And I’m questioning many things about this occasion.

To go?  Of course!

Will my friends be there?  Some will.

Will I recognize people?  I will if the nametags are printed in large letters.

Will I feel like an underachiever?  Yes, some of the time.  Other times, I can hold my own.  Or I can remind myself that it doesn’t matter any more.

Will I be surprised by the directions taken by others?  Undoubtedly.

Will anyone be surprised by me?  I don’t know.

If any reader out there has attended a 50th college reunion, I would love to hear from you.  Was it worth it?  General impressions?  Advice?

Meanwhile, Oberlin class of 1964, here I come!

    I had a good time at my 50th reunion this year. Saw people I forgot about for years and got reacquainted. Missed some people who were not there and some who had passed away. Socialized with some people who I have seen many times after high school but not for 5the last 5 years. Great time to socialize and it went very quickly.

      Hi, Nancy! Thanks for writing. Your experience is what I can hope for. I guess you get in the swing of things once you get there. I’ll post some responses after it is over.

    We are organizing our 50th Reunion of Free Speech Movement Vets at UC Berkeley for this fall. Several days of reunions and teach-ins and more are planned. I’m sorry I’m missing the Oberlin Reunion!
