Alma Mater

I graduated from Jamestown College in Jamestown, North Dakota.  I haven’t the available funds to participate in alumni giving and as such I do not.  Much like any other College or University, JC has an alumni website where we alums can go sign up to keep our classmates and the school updated on our life and just what it is that we are up to.  It also serves as a handy-dandy way for the school to get ahold of us alumni to inform us of upcoming events like reunions, homecoming, etc…

As part of my profile on the JC alumni website, I have listed this website along with several others that I either run or contribute to.

So, that’s the background of this story.

Over the last several days, I’ve noticed a few visitors coming from my profile on the JC alumni site.  This got me to thinking.   I do not contribute in any way to my alma mater except in what I do as an alumni.  So, I’ll endorse the school here and if any prospective students are reading this, I may be contacted for further info.

JC ChapelI received an above average education from above average educators at Jamestown College.  It by no means was a Harvard education, but I firmly believe that I could not have received an education that would equal the one I received from any other college of Jamestown College’s size anywhere in the region.  And the food wasn’t half bad.  In fact there are days when I’m cooking my own food that I really wish that alumni could still stop in for free chow at the cafeteria.
