Do you miss school? The fun of games on the playground? The thrill of gossip in the high school cafeteria? The freedom of life in college?
We miss school, too, so that might be one of the reasons why there are over 34,000 colleges and high schools in the xtra xtra database. The main reason? We want to help you reconnect with your favorite schools and classmates. That means we have over 34,000 individual school pages with news, updates, and announcements written and shared by your fellow alums.
Unlike Classmates.com, xtra xtra is completely free. You can read and post your announcements at no cost, and each posting can be tagged to your favorite towns, high schools, and colleges. It’s a great way to stay connected to your favorite schools and the friends you made there.
You can find all kinds of information on your school page. Here are a few of the headlines from the Boston College page (it’s my alma mater—go Eagles!)…
- Air Force Reserve Airman Jason W. Clark—Jason graduated from BC in 2004. This milestone helped me discover he’s taking new strides in the military with the Air Force.
- Brian Donaher Honored by BC High—Donaher, a teacher at BC High, earned a Masters’ Degree from BC. This milestone told me about his contributions as a teacher in the community.
- Lisa Rooney: Fabulous at Forty!—A birthday announcement was posted for Lisa Rooney, a BC grad and the wife of xtra xtra founder Paul Rooney. It detailed her achievements since BC and included a picture of Lisa with her husband.
- Veronica Corning Takes Her Skill to BC—Veronica will be a freshman at BC this fall. This milestone outlines her talents in tennis and the skill she’ll bring to Boston College.
You can also find professional updates from former classmates, birth announcements, weddings, and other special milestones. Visit xtra xtra and see what’s new with your favorite schools. Just choose “Search By School” and start typing a school in the search field.
Don’t forget to create a free milestone to share with your classmates, and have fun exploring different schools and towns!
Til next time,
