    My friend who graduated two years before me is already having their five year reunion. I think that's way too soon since everyone is still probably in their early twenties, or still finishing school.

    Wow. I've never heard of 5 year reunions. Usually, it's 10 (or 15), then 20. Sounds like your friend's class president (or whoever organized this) is a moron. Or maybe he/she hit the big time and wants to rub it in people's faces.

    Yes. I would guess that there is more to this story. There is a reason these people want to meet other again at a reunion so soon. Ask some questions dude.

    I think its really up to each person. I was busy with law school when my class had our 5 year reunion and wasn't much interested (or cared) in attending. I've gone to a coiuple since.. its cool.

    YES! they're just after your money anyway. I got a 5-year reunion invite for my class but they wanted $100+ for the ticket. I laughed and crammed the invite into the shredder.




    Then burned the shreddings

    My school attempted to organize a five year reunion, but it failed because there was no interest.

    The ten year reunion also failed because they wanted to have it at some fancy country club with $175 tickets. No one rsvp'ed to that, but thanks to Facebook, a few people organized an unofficial reunion at a random bar. Point is, even by the ten year reunion there were still a lot of people just starting to get their lives set up. Five years is pointless.

    Yes. Not enough usually happens in somebody's life in five years. I think people should wait 10 years until they have a High School Reunion

    I've been out of HS for 36 years and college for 32. I still see no reason to attend reunions. I already keep in touch with those that I want. I suppose that's why I can't be found on Facebook, Twiiter etc.

    Too soon. Five years is often not long enough for the gay transformation from the skinny nerd dodge ball target who spent afternoons watching Oprah with his mom into the muscle dude who looks like he spent a lifetime at the gym and playing sports.

    I'm from a German/Irish catholic (midwestern) town where obesity and alcoholism is expected.

    I think I sum it up nicely when I overheard at the last reunion. "Fuck you, liver."

    With the exception of the classmate who runs marathons, I will enjoy the next one even more if I stay off the pizza for another two years. Wish a few of my facebook classmates could resist spamming cruise ship buffet pictures. They're blocking out the sun.

    I skip high school reunions but have attended some college reunions. Our school does a big cocktail dinner party on the quad with a lot of bands / music / and other activities. It is fun. Seeing old friends is good too.........since we've scattered across the country (and world in some cases).

    I'd say go ahead and go to your five year high school reunion, if you want.
