It's a Small World for Titans
We posed a question on Facebook: What's the farthest or most unexpected place that you've encountered an Illinois Wesleyan alum?
- My neighborhood in Madison, Wisconsin. There are three of us who live next door to each other. We discovered this after several years of living next to each other when the newsletters were delivered to one of us. We are all different generation Titans, but we share stories and memories of the campus and faculty.
- I was in Tokyo Japan, meeting up for tea with an international IWU student that was home in Japan for the summer. We were crossing the street in the world's busiest pedestrian intersection when she spotted yet another IWU alumnus in the same intersection. She ran over to him and it was a crazy reunion more than 6,000 miles from home. Here's a video of the crossing. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eTZc7lUFQro … - So yeah - more than 6,000 miles away from home, already with an IWU alumnus I had met up with, and in the world's busiest pedestrian intersection... can you say irony?
