Happy summer, ’01s. More importantly, happy 20th anniversary of our Sophomore Summer, ’01s! I do not have many updates for you this time around, but I am going to say that is a good thing so that you can save your time for basking in your ’01 summertime glory. Robin DeGracia wrote in with fond memories of the summer of 1999, when she had just returned from her language study abroad and first trip to Europe. Two decades later, the travel bug remains with her family, including her husband, 9-year-old son, and 7-year-old daughter, heading to Bali to celebrate Robin’s birthday. Happy travels!
Memories of Sophomore Summer often include that awesome New Hampshire landscape. Few people will experience that special New England air as much as Meg (Fuchs) Hastings, who became the director of administration and facilities at Harvard Forest in January. The forest is Harvard’s 4,000-acre outdoor laboratory and classroom located in central Massachusetts.
Now that you have read this pithy column, go outside and relive the magic of our special time in Hanover, just 20 short years ago.
