... but it's never too early for nostalgia
When this year's graduating seniors got to
Ann Arbor, affirmative action was the
norm, Michigan's Rose Bowl losing streak
had not yet begun and Coca Cola still symbolized
wholesome family refreshment. But as the pictures on
this page attest, a lot can change in four years.
This special section reflects back on the
major happenings that defined our college
years, but it will inevitably not encompass
everything. That is the beauty of this col-
lege experience. The moments that mattered,
that defined us and will continue to drive us
were as likely to be found on the front page of
the Daily as in quiet conversations in coffee
shops or class discussions.
And then some are even bigger than this
page. From the passage of Proposal 2 to the
death of former U.S. President Gerald Ford, a
lot of the events that dominated campus dis-
course also caught the attention of the state
and the country.
It was in these happenings that our iden-
tities developed and matured. Perhaps even
with all the changes,we graduate into a world
similar to the way it was when we entered col-
lege. But the effect they had on us are indel-
ible. If the last four years change the world, it
will be because of what we learned and how
our outlooks changed.
Turn the page for a sentimental refresher.
