There is something about Pomona reunions which I think is very unusual. Friends tell me that they avoid their own reunions at other colleges because of the rampant competition: who has the most prestigious job, makes the most money, has the slimmest figure. I have never heard this sort of conversation when I have returned to Pomona. Classmates want to know, as they always have, how you really are, what you are reading, what has happened in your life, what you plan for the future.
Its a very special place.
