"Examples of fiction revolving around class reunions are [...]"[edit]

What follows is only examples which do not have the word "class reunion" in their title. Those who do can now be found in a separate article, which is only mentioned at the top of this article. Does anyone think this is more user-friendly now? <KF> 10:20, 5 June 2006 (UTC)

The definition of reunion is not clear.[edit]

Is a reunion for the entire class or for a specific group of former classmates who knew each other? I would not want to attend a reunion for the entire class. It is impossible for a student to know everyone in his or her graduating class. There are too many people. --Alchaenist (talk) 06:45, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

Merger with Homecoming[edit]

66.72.103.157 (talk) 21:11, 11 November 2008 (UTC)BJS: A class reunion at American University or High School has little to do with Homecoming. They are not typically at the same time or coordinated with each other. They are completely different concepts. Homecoming is an overall school event.

Seems ill advised to me... these are not the same things. Homecoming typically (at least in the US) is for all alumni and happens in conjunction with an athletic events. Class reunions typically are organized for a specific class (class of 1983, for example) at a significant anniversary (such as 20 years or 30 years, the 30 year reunion of class of 1979 would be held in 2009...) Therefore these don't seem good merge candidates to me. 68.188.146.168 (talk) 00:59, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

agreed. Lentower (talk) 02:52, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

I went ahead and removed the merge tag. It has been there since November 2008 with no support for the merge. I am assuming that the user who added the tag was confused about what "homecoming" is in the United States. Lagringa (talk) 17:15, 5 June 2010 (UTC)

Facebook[edit]

Nothing about Facebook killing off class reunions? BratmanGodzilla (talk) 04:52, 3 June 2010 (UTC)

Any proof that is actually happening? People are also using Facebook to organize reunions. Lagringa (talk) 17:58, 5 June 2010 (UTC)
