    I graduated in 2002. There have been no reunions, and I wouldn’t go to them if they existed.

    3 years. If we had a reunion, I would totally go! We haven’t had one yet. It was a small private school, so it would probably be just an “alumni reunion” versus an X-year reunion.

    It made me really sad to realize I had to click the 11-20 years choice! haha Graduated in 2002 but I was supposed to graduate in 2003. I skipped my junior year.

     

    I haven’t been to any reunions and I doubt I ever will… Not many people I care to see honestly.

    It’s my 10 year reunion in a month.  Judging by some of the drama that happened on our reunion Facebook page, a lot of people haven’t grown up yet.

    um… for a while. 🙂

    someone (a fellow student) tried to make a 10 year reunion, but it more or less fell apart probably because of facebook, I heard it ended up with like 5 or so friends showing up and going drinking. I wasn’t in town anyway but it seemed a little sad that reunions seem to be a thing of the past because of facebook.

    I’ve been out of school for 14 years. I went to my 5 year reunion which was a joke. It was like we were still in high school. I couldn’t make it to the 10 year and not sure I would have anyway. I probably won’t go to my 15 year next year. I live in a small town and see most of these people weekly, everyone still holds grudges over stuff that happened when we were 15, you know the “you stole my boyfriend” etc. I’m too old for that crap.

    I’ve been out 6 years now. We didn’t have a 5 year because a poll of my class mates showed that everyone thought that it was too soon.

    I might attend my 10 year. I currently live out of state so I probably won’t make a special trip for it. If I’ve moved back or I’m already in town I will probably go.

    Five years, but if we want to be technical 5.5 years, as I finished a semester early, even though I wasn’t allowed to get my diploma until the graduation ceremony. At any rate, my reunion is in a couple of weeks, and I recently made a post about it, as I’m torn as whether to go or not! I think I’ll end up going for an hour, and that’ll be long enough for me!

    @MsW-to-MrsM:  I graduated in ’02 too! We had a high school reunion last year for 10 years, but I missed it because it was the same night as my sister’s bachelorette party, and I was the main planner.

    I really really wanted to go because I wasn’t in the “cool crowd” when I was younger, and was teased for being so pale, thin, and tall. and I’ve done really really well since then, I look amazing, and … I wanted to see all the popular girls get fat! hahaha (sorry, I’m ridiculous)

    My 10 year reunion should’ve been sometime this year! I don’t think anyone planned one and I wouldn’t have attended anyway.

    7 years! I went to my 5 year reunion, but I went to a small private school so they have an alumni reunion every year and a variety of alums show up. So I got to see friends from different graduation years.

    @chic_and_fabulous:  I’m the same way! Love too see that the girls who teased me aren’t all that hot anymore!
