Not Fair-Weather Friends

If you were on campus in the pelting sleet this morning, you probably noticed all the cars lined up outside the dorms, flashers blinking. Today’s the last day of finals (and commencement is tomorrow). It made me think of a December day 22 years ago when I finished up my undergrad career and said goodbye to the guys I knew in my hall. I haven’t talked to most of them for more than two decades, which is kind of sad. While I’ve stayed good friends with a core group from my high school days, my college friendships just didn’t last as long.

We heard from folks who’ve held reunions for more than 50 years, groups who go on yearly camping trips, others who’ve started their own tongue-in-cheek holidays to get together. Our January/February issue will feature some of the best of those stories. Look for the magazine in your mailbox late this month or early in January, depending on where you live.
