Home : Reunion Myths
There are quite a few scary college reunion myths that may circle in your mind upon receiving a class reunion "save the date" invitation. Your current relationship status may be a source of reunion angst, particularly if your alma mater was small enough so everyone knew everyone's social business. Rest assured--whether you are hitched, single or divorced, it is guaranteed that other alumni will have the same status. The class reunion may even turn into a chance to get together with old flames from the dorm or show off how you snagged the captain of the football team. Another frequent college reunion myth is that your employment status will become an issue and an embarrassment. In our day of economic flip-flopping, many other former students are sure to be unimpressive if not unemployed. So shake off class reunion expectations of success! A third myth is the time-honored struggle between the parent and the career-obsessed CEO. When these two archetypes meet at the class reunion, don't expect the cliche trouble. The beauty of reunions, as was the beauty of college, is that there is diversity and different life interest everywhere you turn. Learn from who you have all become, just as you learned from various library crawlers or debutantes or ever-activists back then.
