Travel: University of the Pacific!

Welcome back for a special back to school post from my mom Margie Dingfelder. This week is all about reuniting with old friends and reminiscing about your school days. Lets get started…

“This is my college reunion road trip.  This past weekend my old college roommate came to visit me. We hadn’t seen each other in about 20 years. We decided to take an alumni road trip for the day to University of the Pacific in Stockton, California. We had a blast reminiscing! We found our way there with help from my navigation system. We walked all over the beautiful campus in 100 degree temperature to our old dorms, the library, buildings where we used to take classes, and the campus chapel where she reminded me that she had gotten married. There was a wedding going on there but we waited it out so we could go in and take photos. We met a student there and we introduced ourselves as former students way back when. We spoke about the differences in tuition, dorm life, colleges as we remembered them etc. He assured us that we really weren’t that old even though he could have almost been our grandchild. We found out that our former football stadium had been torn down. We figured that since Pete Carroll, the head coach of the Sea Hawks, played football there when we were there that his name had to be somewhere. No luck! After that we were determined to find our apartment that we shared for 2 years. It was a challenge due to both of our senior moments, but she somehow remembered that it looked Polynesian. Old memories of what we did in the apartment flooded back. It was really a perfect day rekindling our friendship like it was yesterday.

Have you ever done something similar? Please feel free to share those special moments with us.”
