The gathering place for LU alumni to wax nostalgic about their glory days and tell current students how easy they have it. Old hags & bright-eyed and bushytailed recent grads both welcome.

I know we have a slew of alumni on the board these days. Back on the Firehouse we started a thread to give everybody a chance to give a little backgrounder on themselves. Since we have so many new members I thought it might be a good idea to bring back the concept. Perhaps it might even help a few of reconnect. Obviously, many would like to maintain anonimity on the board and that is perfectly cool. So don't feel compelled to use your real name unless you feel so inclined. I'll get things started:

Zack Felter

Born in Texas, grew up in Vidor. Went to Texas A&M for two years before I felt God leading me to LU after turning them down out of High School. Came to LU on a debate scholarship in 1995. Quit the debate team two weeks into it to try out for the baseball team. Coach Hutton just loved the fact that I had 4 knee surgeries already so he told me to give baseball up.

I met my future wife the 1st weekend at LU. We met at the late-night the first weekend. We dated for 4 year before we got married up here in PA.

I lived in the trailer park, Dorm 14, Rm 21 for a year.
I was a SLD on Dorm 2, back when we were over the campus pastors office and the RD
then moved back to Dorm 14 as a RA, then moved back to Dorm 2 as an RA the next year. I just loved getting calls from the RD that lived below us.

Now reside in Parkesburg,PA with my LU alumni wife, Heather and our two little boys, 4 year old Jonathan and 1 year old Nathanael. I am the youth pastor at Wyebrook Baptist Church in Elverson,PA for my full-time/part-time job. But have to work at a Honda Dealership in West Chester,PA to put food on the table, if you know what I mean?

I don't have the '89 Selah since I graduated before it came out. But I admit being intrigued. I wonder if anybody has age old horror stories to tell about me besides thelaxman.

Warren Kelly

86-87 dorm 7-Up
87-88 dorm 14 (I think. I try to forget that year as much as possible)
88-89 dorm 4 (hell side -- and it really was. When I have time, I have stories .....)
89-90 dorm 31 (I think) -- only lasted a semester. Parents got tired of paying for lousy grades.

GRADUATED (finally!) January 2004, Interdisciplinary Studies: Busniess and Religion.

I was in band 86-89, marched all four years. Got involved at the radio station in the spring of my freshman year. Did news 87-88.

Now I'm at Southern Seminary (well, right now my seminary career is on hiatus -- expecting child #2, need the money).

My wife (who won't post here, I'm sure) graduated in 90 with a History Ed degree. She was Phi Alpha Theta president in '90, and IIRC won the Book Award. She's been in Who's Who a couple times (I've made Who's That pretty much every year).

I married up.
