Bright lights, big city pajama party
I always like to hear how college pals have stayed in touch over the years, getting together for golf outings, beach weekends, wine tastings, you name it. The Wake Forest mystique can be defined in innumerable ways, but one that rises above all is friendship.
The other day I heard one of those stories from journalism professor Mary Martin Niepold. She met with three of her friends from the Class of 1963 in New York City for Broadway shows and a reunion of women who hail from Maryland, Texas, California and North Carolina. She writes, "All of us are back together again after so many years, and all of us are English majors and joined irreparably at the hip, it seems, from the days when we lived either in Johnson or Bostwick dorms and struggled through endless 'Strings' meetings." You'll read how they spent five days reminiscing and seeing the city, never skipping a beat. It also might serve as a reminder to see details about Homecoming Sept. 19-20.
Here's to friends,
