Welcome!

Welcome to the blog for the Vanderbilt University Centennial Class!

We are members of the Class of 1973, graduating just a few short months (May 25, 1973) after the 100th anniversary of the founding of the school (March 17, 1873).

It even says so on our diploma.

So dig yours out of the closet and dust it off already! :)

Now we are set to come back to campus (the weekend of October 24-25, 2008) to celebrate our 35th Class Reunion.

Wow! Can it really be that long ago? After all, we are all still in our 40s, right?

We hope this blog will stir long-forgoteen memories of those wonderful days gone by, and help build enthusiam for everyone to come back to Nashville to celebrate!

In that regard, we invite your reflections and memories about the years we spent together at Vanderbilt. We will do our best to stimulate your brain cells and help you recall what was happening during this fascinating period of history for our country, and especially for Vanderbilt.

But after that, it's really up to you. This is your blog to share what you remember about your college experience and what it still means to you 35 years later.

So let the blogging begin.

There was also Mountain, Steve Miller, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Albert King, Doc Watson, Lester Flatt. I recall the NG Dirt Band putting on surprisingly good show, but then so did the others. I also recall hearing the rumor that Simon and Garfunkle offered to do a show while they were in town recording, but because it would have to be during the week, they weren't booked. Anyone else remember hearing that?
There was also the Allman Brothers, the Temptations, and Jethro Tull downtown at some old auditorium.
I really did study, too.
