15 Year Law School Reunion

Mortgage and Lending with Cherry Creek Mortgage Illinois Residential Mortgage License LMB #0005759 Cherry Creek Mortgage NMLS #: 3001 NMLS ID# 158606

Just had my 15 year law school reunion at Northern Illinois University on Saturday.  Man was it a blast.  My Family at the Reception for NIU 15 Year Law School ReunionIt started with tailgaiting at the NIU School of Law Alumni Tent.   Free food, beer, and pop and cupcakes for the kids. 

Afterwords, we went to the Northern Illinois University vs. Western Michigan University game which NIU won 38-3.  Just an awesome game.

Then we went to the bookstore & ate at Burrittoville, the midnight mecca of NIU after drinking parties.  Had some killer mexican food. 

Finally, we went to the reception.  I gave the kids the tour of the law schoo.  There were some really cool changes to the school.  The favorite of the kids?  Seeing dad's picture for the class of 1994.  "Boy dad....you looked like a boy then."  "Gee thanks kids.....I became aged by raising you five." 

Some members of the class of 1994 After that, we went to the reception.  Kids weren't allowed, so I put them in a room with a TV for an hour.  The room was connected to the event so when things got rowdy, I'd take a piece of meat and throw it in their cage. 

We really had a fun time reminiscing about life, our paths and what we're all doing.  There were no egos that said "I'm this or I'm so great about that."   No... surprisingly our class was very humble.  The black man in the front row is a stellar human being.  His name is Thaddeus Wilson.  He's now a judge.  He's probably the most high profile, yet he's probably the most humble man in our class.  I'm the GREAT loooking guy with the two good looking women to the right and left of me (speaking of humility).  The kids had a blast.  They didn't want to go home.  Mom had a lot of fun.  I only wish that I could have dumped the kids for 1 hour to continue to hang...but I'm all about our 20 year.  Thanks everyone....it was a blast!.

Hi Larry

Sounds like it was a fun event and looking at your family it looks liked they enjoyed it as well.

Good luck and success.

I'm not sure I could tolerate going to any type of reunion, high school or college. Now if we have an ActiveRain reunion at the 2009 NAR Convention next month here in San Diego, I could do that! LOL
