College Fever

Written on Friday, August 15, 2008 by Deeze

Lately I've been a bit disconnected from my glory days being in college. Those were the best and the poorest times.
I haven't participated in any AAMU events in over 3 years. In fact, I've missed the last 3 homecomings. Before I had a streak of about 8 or so consecutive ones (most while attending). This year that will change. Not only am I going to homecoming, but I'm also going to the Circle City Classic because AAMU is playing in it this year.

For those of you that don't know. Black College Homecoming and Football is a big deal. It's not so much the game, but it's more of the social scene, the halftime shows, the Greek shows, and the parties. For a non-HBCU school, it's usually not too big of a deal. Just one of the many cultural differences.

Also AAMU has an Alumni website that is similar to MySpace/Facebook. You create your own page and upload pictures and everything. For the last few days, I've been addicted. I've seen and emailed people I haven't seen or talked too in years. I feel like I've expanded my network a lot more now. Whoever created this I have to say great job!

Anyone who's reading this make sure you make a page.... you will be shocked by some of the people that you will see.

Here's a few links:
