Get Involved with your Reunion

By: Nicole Oddo

Happy 2015! I’m excited to be celebrating my 10th Reunion this May 15th – 17th.

But I decided that I want to do more than celebrate – I want to help make our 10th Reunion memorable.  I decided to get involved and I’m inviting my classmates and fellow alumni to think about it too.

Our lives are busy – work, family, friends, weddings, and other commitments will quickly fill our 2015 calendar but I always want to carve out time to reconnect with Penn, see great lifelong friends, and meet more of our amazing classmates.  I helped on the 5th Reunion and met a whole group of new classmates.  I made wonderful friends at Penn and continue to meet interesting, engaging people through Penn.  I’m meeting new people with amazing creativity and interesting lives already as we gear up for May.

One of my favorite quotes is from author Mark Twain:

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

Or the other day, I saw something particularly funny and relevant on Pinterest although I don’t know where it originated.

“No one looks back on their life and remembers the nights they had plenty of sleep.”

We all have limited time but can always use more fun, rewarding opportunities.  Please consider how you can contribute to your class.  There are so many ways to help – from writing emails to planning event logistics to helping host alumni in your city.
