REMEMBERING CALVIN COLLEGE 1989 GRADUATION

 CALVIN GRADUATION '89..this is a blog dedicated to the graduating class as well as my friends, housemates, roommates, activities, et al from the "calvin years" (the first time around that is; later I returned to calvin for another two years and another bachelor's degree '92-94; and  a third time for a year at the seminary, '96-97). Unfortunately, i did not become an avid photo-taker until later in life...I don't have pics from freshman year in the dorms..or many other great calvin events and times and memories..this was before camera-phones..all these pics were on old-school film, and later I scanned them . This also does not include the "semeseter in Spain" or the "semester in Hawaii" et al.
