As an active Clark alumnus, I find it most rewarding to help coordinate my class reunions. Planning reunion activities and reconnecting with classmates is a lot of fun, as I love reaching out to old friends and other classmates I didn’t know back in the 1990s.
Being on my Reunion Committee was a great way to combine nostalgia and excitement for the future. Being a volunteer gave me a well-needed push to reconnect with Clarkies I hadn’t seen in years. With each conversation and meeting, I was reminded of people and places that meant so much to me, and I was happy to ‘give back,’ in a way.
The more I got involved in the Reunion Committee, the more I got out of it.
Being on the reunion committees for my five- and ten-year reunions gave me the opportunity to collaborate with my classmates to create programming that would appeal to a broad audience. As a bonus, I got to reconnect with other members on the committees and have some really fun phone calls throughout the planning process!
