Julie Beck from The Atlantic dedicated the latest chapter of her article series, The Friendship Files, to the annual NYE reunion with the extended community of students of uVic that we started in 2011.
When Julie contacted us, we hesitated for a couple of days. Are we The Atlantic material? In the end, we thought that the world appreciates good news right now, and to us this is good news: friendship, tradition, and some joie de vivre. Julie’s pieces are wonderful little portraits, each a different window shining light on what friendship can be.
The article on our NYE reunion is entitled These Long-Distance Friends Reunite Every New Year’s Like No Time Has Passed and is available online.
