Every so often, I'll hear some longtime employees complain that the newer cohort (of which they still consider me a part) doesn't care about the college like they did. The last time I heard this line, I asked what they meant; what made them think we didn't care? I wasn't expecting the answer I got: "Everybody used to go out drinking together after work. Nobody does that anymore."Well, okay. It's true that we don't now; it may be true that they did once. But what the hell does that have to do with dedication to the college?
