Share Your '09 Big Bash Memories
Wabash College's Big Bash Reunion Weekend just keeps growing. Nearly 400 alums were on campus June 5-6-7 for the sixth reunion weekend. We want to hear you memories or thoughts. Add your comment about Big Bash 2009 below!
The "Alumni Register" that chronicles who returns to campus for Big Bash Reunion Weekend was been closed for 2009, and Alumni Director Tom Runge may need to add some pages after a record 389 alumni signed the ledger.
The record turnout bested the previous record of 356 returning alums in 2007. We had graduates from 1934 to 2004. Atwood Smith '34 was here to sign the register Saturday morning.
And the young alums were surprised what a great time they had at Big Bash. "I was actually really apprehensive about coming to this weekend because I thought it would be kind of boring and not a very exciting time," Rober Neal '04 said. "But it's totally the opposite. It's just great to see everybody, even people I didn't hang out with a lot in college. It's like we just left each other and now we're here staying in the dorms. It's pretty fun."
