So, apparently most people don’t get really nostalgic for their alma mater when they are just 4 years post-college. I was the youngest person at the Clarke
College University event by at least five years. (Unless you include Katie, who is on staff as the Alumni Relations Coordinator. Then I was the youngest person by three years.)
I still had a wonderful time.
I got a fancy nametag. (So did Goose. Since his didn’t have a graduation year, someone asked him if he was a current student. Awesome.)
I ate some yummy food. I chatted with some alums, including the admissions rep who recruited me to Clarke. I even won a prize.
It was a travel mug.
And Goose got a stellar Clarke hat. (Don’t worry, I will make him wear it all the time.)
I really like Clarke. And I really like my husband for putting up with the fact that I want to attend alumni events when I am 26. This was my first, but it most certainly will not be my last.
I admit I might be a little overly obsessed with Clarke. What obsessions do you have? Come on, make me feel less lame.
borrowed took my mom’s camera and I can’t figure out how to get the date off the pictures. So yeah. I took the photos today.
