Almost every day the calendar has a holiday. But the day of the graduate in it. Despite this, there is an unspoken rule that as “dates to remember” use the first Saturday of February. In 2021, the reunion falls on 1 February.
Why in February
The tradition to gather the whole issue appeared along with the first University. However, in the middle ages, she was given much more importance. Educated people in those days were few, so it was important to maintain ties. And meetings not remembered his younger years, and discussed important issues, including politics. And the result could be a petition to the king on the introduction of a new law or Vice versa.
Today, the gatherings of alumni are held not only in universities but also in schools, lyceums, colleges. A transfer to the memorable dates of February occurred relatively recently — since the school became mandatory stage in the educational system. Students often continue their studies in universities, so the free time they have little. Remain only a small vacation after exams. Therefore, the holiday “put” just after the winter session.
The tradition to gather after the release is unofficial, so when is the reunion in 2021, decides each class and the course on their own. If you do not fit the traditional date is February 1, you can be transferred at a later time. For example, in may and meet with the school at the last bell.
At meetings of former classmates today are not discussed important Affairs of state. The only tradition that has survived a visit to the school. Students come to school or University, meet with their teachers, discuss the old days.
Schools more sensitive to the feast, so the students decorate the school building:
- hang a festive welcome banner;
- hung balls;
- decorate the walls with collages of photographs of graduates;
- prepare a small show of talent. 9535
If the school has alumni that she is proud of, it is a mandatory event will be the performance. The most successful talk about the years spent behind a Desk and how it affected their lives. Such statements motivate the current generation of students and show what opportunities they have.
This is an optional program. Each school fits in their own way to the party. But the universities did not react to the festive preparations. Most often it is the standard school day, which is no different from the others. The graduates in the University building are only a fraction of the time. After the Assembly at school or University celebration continues with a small feast. To hold such gatherings at school inconvenient, so the meeting flows in a cafe or restaurant.
The organization of the meeting
The organisation of the festival involved themselves former students. Now it is very easy to do. Find classmates in social networks. We just need to create a General chat with a discussion of who is coming and when the reunion in 2021. Usually the initiators are those guys that are in school time was the most active.
Simultaneously with the General discussion at the meeting, it is necessary to contact the school. Each institution sets its own rules. Although by tradition all on 1 February 2021 are entitled to a free tour of the building and to all audiences. Also, prior notification will help to raise the teachers, even if they are already retired. Older teachers can directly visit at their house. But such gatherings are arranged very small companies, where the beloved disciple.
Alumni meeting is conducted in an informal format. No dress code and other binding rules. Students can split into small groups by interests and to continue the dialogue separately from the main mass of tourists. Also to leave the event at any time, without waiting until all decide to disperse.
The main purpose of the meeting is communication. Although the reunion is held every year, some classes are only on round dates. For example, after 10 years. Because during that time a lot has changed and I want to see how rose school mates.
