I am the chairperson for my alma mater's five year reunion. How soon should I start the planning and how soon should I send out "save the date" invitations to potential college reunion attendees?
It is a good class reunion planning idea to start the organization process at least a year in advance. There is a lot that goes into reunion planning, particularly, the location of classmates. In your "save the date" invitations (sent between 5 and 9 months in advance of the college reunion event), you may want to include a list of classmates you haven't been able to locate--some alumni may have pertinent information you don't.
I am a resident of Florida and have been hearing about an annual event called Black College Reunion. Can you fill me in?

How should I handle attending a college reunion?
If you're not dedicated to helping out in the college reunion planning process, at least shake your college reunion nerves and uncertainties by strolling through memory lane. Call a few alumni friends and look at old photos. Head to your alma mater's town and check out your past dorms and apartments. Above all, don't let your current relationship, economic or social statuses prevent you from enjoying this fun and nostalgic event!
How can I make my college reunion stand out?
If you are the event planner of your college reunion, add some nostalgic touches to the reunion venue decorating. The tables can bring alumni back to the good days of tailgating and partying with a few relics of your college age, such as a mini mascot or school colored balloons. The name tags for attendees of the college reunion could also include a mini past photo of the alumnus for his or her classmates to have a laugh over.
