A selection of 2005’s finest!
We started the day with a walk to campus with scenes of fall
Campus is just the same – still gorgeous!
I fell in love with Davidson’s grounds on Valentine’s Day of my junior year of high school. I came for a tour and meet n greet day. It had been on my list of schools to look into, but I really didn’t know much about it despite growing up just 2 hours away (in the heart of ACC country!) Everything about the college impressed me that day. I had my heart set on going to Davidson for the next year until just before applications were due and I decided to pursue early decision at Duke instead. But you know, basketball season was just beginning and I realized at the last minute that I just wanted to go to Duke for the sports – Davidson was a better fit for my personality. So I switched my early decision application back to Davidson. Glad I went with my gut. I had the most wonderful four years here (and met my husband too!) And my sister loved her time here too!
We browsed by the football game but never made it inside
We paid a visit to the bookstore to look for Davidson branded animals. These guys said they knew Bocker back in the day!
So did he! Said Bocker used to do a mean keg stand.
Walked around with friends
Plugged myself into the “free speech board” in the union
Took our class photo
Caught up with friends
Kirst and I went to nursery school, elementary school, middle school, high school AND college together!
And Carter introduced herself as a faithful KERF reader! We knew each other in college, but it’s so fun to think people know me better (via the internet) now that we’ve graduated!
Around 2 I was ready for lunch at the union.
And was recognized by Erin, a KERF reader Freshman!! I was just wondering if I had any Davidson readers [If y’all are out there don’t be shy!]
I loved ordering my sandwich by checklist just like in the olden days. I use to live in this cafe! [And yes, that’s Matt’s hand posing!]
I was also impressed by all of the GREEN efforts I saw, including organic milk and greek yogurt available, grass-fed local beef and composting!
The most expensive yet tiniest sandwich I have ever seen:
Hummus and a variety of veggies, plus pesto, grilled. It was good, but the bread was very blah and it was TINY!
Side of broccoli and a pickle
And a Peppermint Patty for dessert
Next we walked down to SAE for the annual Oyster Roast
Can’t believe I used to eat in these frat houses. Everything seems so unsanitary now!! Guess it was the blinding beer
Guess who took the Saltine Challenge!? Video to come!
Instead of beer, I drank a Raw Revolution bar. I got these as a sample at the Cville Veggie Fest and like them a lot!
So VERY glad I went for comfort over style today. These shoes carried me a mile home while talking to my mom. I was back in a heartbeat and with happy feet.
Getting dressed up for the dinner that cost us mucho dollars per ticket. Excited for the slideshow and chatting with friends.
Currently munching on almonds and sipping some of Matt’s pumpkin homebrew.
