Good ole JC. You are always on my mind. I find myself missing my sisters often. When I began missing them the most JDay weekend arrived. JDay is alumni weekend at Judson College. It is a special weekend designated for class reunions, business meetings, and reminiscing of the glory days.
When JDay came around this year, I was ecstatic. I couldn’t wait to get back to Marion. Yes! I did say that. I missed MARION...
Now for all of you current students out there that say you want to escape that town, hold your tongue. You will see one day! I promise! There is a certain comfort that a Judson girl feels as she approaches 302 Bibb St. As she sees Jewett, she is bombarded with memories of Step Sings, Serenades, Teas, and Classes. She is also filled with the love of Sisterhood. Needless to say, I was one happy girl when I arrived the Friday of JDay weekend. The weekend was fantastic. My friends and I were inducted into the alumni association. We attended banquets and special dinners for alumna. We also participated in much needed late night giggling. When I actually lived in the dorm, I didn’t really appreciate it. I didn’t understand how fantastic it was that my best friend was my suite mate. I also didn’t realize how awesome it is to live just down the hall from just about everyone. JDay weekend was a wonderful reminder of the great times I experienced at JC. It was great to see all of my friends that are current students.
When Sunday afternoon rolled around, I was not ready to go. I did not want to leave the place and the people that made such an impact on my life. I didn’t cry because I was out of tears, but I was sad to go. As I write this, tears come to my eyes, but I look forward to my next trip to Judson.
I return June 24 for Graduation festivities!!!!! Thats right! They are giving me a diploma! :)
