For some, Homecoming is a garden of new ideas sowed by old friends. Who'd want to miss that?!
Last Homecoming, four roommates from Crissey 103 reconnected at the Class of 1973's Homecoming reunion and planned a "trip of a lifetime," according to Peg Maass McAllister '73. They waited a short six months to harvest their idea, making a trip to Machu Picchu in May 2009. Pictured in their Kalamazoo College t-shirts (including two from last year's Homecoming 5K race), with the ancient Incan city in the background, are (l-r): Jennifer Armstrong West, Linda Lee Lutz, Peg Maass McAllister, and Carole Siewert Keen.
