So You Think You Know Vandy 1969-1973?
Welcome to your Vanderbilt Class of '73 Reunion blog!
This is your place to get "in the mood" to come back for our 35th Reunion October 24-25 as the VU Centennial Class returns to campus once more.
You can get ready for Reunion by coming here to interact with your Vandy classmates and think back on the days we were all together on West End here in Nashville.
There are almost 40 blog postings already on this site (which started up back in February). Hopefully they'll help you remember those special times in the late 1960s and early '70s.
And we plan a new posting here at least once a day, everyday, from now all the way to Reunion weekend itself. So come back often.
But whether this is your first visit or you've already been here several times, how about a chance to win some prizes from the Vanderbilt Reunion Office? (and when's the last time you got anything free from the University?) :)
All you have to do is be one of the first three class members to correctly answer the Vandy trivia questions below. Please submit your answers by hitting the comments link at the end of this post (and leave us some contact information like your name and e-mail address, so we can get back in touch if you are a winner).
Here's the quiz (It's an open book test but Honor Code still applies) :)
1.What Vanderbilt assistant football coach has gone on to coach and win in the Super Bowl?
A. Bobby Proctor
B. Alexander Heard
C. Watson Brown
D. Bill Parcells
2. The first co-ed dorm at Vanderbilt was?
A. Stapleton Hall
B. Landon House
C. McGill Hall
D. Oxford House
3. If you had long hair you could not eat at what area restaurant?
C. Tex Ritter's
D. Pancake Pantry
4. Which of the following rock groups were the featured performers at Homecoming our freshman year?
A. The Grateful Dead
C. The Association
I believe many of you have seen most, if not all, of these questions before. In fact, we asked them 20 years ago when we were preparing for our 15th Reunion in 1988.
We sent out a special Blue Book mailing with the questions. The answers were contained in a special HUSTLER we sent out later.
So rummage through your memories and maybe your attic to find the correct answers. Then submit them below and you could be a winner!
Then remember to come back here often as we all get ready for Reunion '08!
