College Networks

by Dual Income No Kids on February 7, 2007 · 0 comments

I recall my economics professor in undergrad saying that a great reason to attend an expensive liberal arts college was to marry up. He had taken his own advice and was married to an upwardly mobile college sweetheart.

I went to Lewis & Clark College, a small but prestigeous liberal arts college in Portland, Oregon. While I didn’t find anyone at LC, luck would have it that while James and I met in high he was simultaneously attending a midwestern liberal arts college. So I suppose looking back I ended up on a bit of the same path as my professor advised.

While you might not always marry someone from college, but I figure it is good to network. I’ve got an alumni event this evening for the first time meeting other LCers in the Washington area. It should be good to meet folks, maybe even bump into someone I know, and perhaps make some contacts. I figure that I might as well capitalize on spending oddles on tuition by gaining something in addition to a great education.

Of course it’s a small world when the new President of Lewis & Clark went to Earlham College, James’ alma matta.

Good luck networking!
