The Big Bash is, first and foremost, a chance to get together with old friends and swap tales of yesteryear. It’s also a time for families to get a chance to see where Dad went to College.

I caught this young family at, of course, the Pioneer Chapel. In the course of every campus tour, formal or informal, the Chapel is a magnet. I am not quite sure what it is, but there’s a need, I think, for all of us to come back and to make sure the rocks of Wabash – Center Hall, the Chapel, the Mall – don’t change.

These "rocks" anchor the rest of our lives, in many ways.

I still remember the location in the Chapel of my assigned seat as a freshman – do you?
