I stopped by the campus last Sunday for the first time in 30 years or so. From Main Street the school looks the same, Administration Building, Science Building, but what a change around the quad. I guess I don’t keep up enough, the auditorium building is being renovated and the other two buildings are new. I did know that Plunkett was torn down, and there is a very fitting brick building in its place. The dining hall and the gym look outwardly the same, but the soda shop was more of a cafe. Unfortunately, I did not have a lot of time to spare, so my memories will remain of the interiors of the buildings. I arrived riding my Harley Davidson and had to run with the sun this time of the year, although I did momentarily consider riding across the athletic fields like Mr. Boyle did from time to time on his Honda 305 back in 1965 – 1967.
Overall, I believe that the change is inevitable, and i consider that the changes made so far are in keeping with the Ivy covered halls, but I do have to agree with Horace Greeley, you can never go home again.
Class of 1967
