Although the magazine comes out in August, I am writing this column in June, right after Reunion Weekend. More than 800 alumni returned to campus for four days packed with good food, great friends and memories galore. The days are long — I’d be fibbing if I said my feet didn’t hurt! But what we — your alumni staff — take away from that weekend is a renewal and re-energizing of our passion for our profession.
Personally, I am always thrilled to hear your stories of relationships with professors cultivated, lifelong friendships forged and romances that bloomed right here on the shores of Lake Ontario.
It’s not too early to start thinking about two great Reunions coming up — Return to Oz IV is slated for Sept. 27 to 29, 2013. Register now for a Sept. 29, 2012, Kick-off Party in New York City (oswego.edu/returntooz). And Reunion Weekend 2013 — June 6-9 — is already in the planning stages (oswego.edu/reunion). Volunteer for the Reunion planning committee, get in touch with your friends and come back to campus for a great time. We’ll be waiting to welcome you … and the Oswego alumni magazine crew will have our notebooks and cameras handy to record your inspiring stories!
