Two girls – How we met


This is part of a memoir series on my friendship with Renee who I met in college and focuses mainly on our escapades during our late teens and early twenties. 

Renee and I met on the first day of college at Brown University in 1981 at Convocation.  The Van Wickle Gates are opened twice a year.  At the beginning of the school year freshmen come in through the gates.  They proceed to the Main Green where a convocation speech is held.  Four years later, we would walk through again on graduation.

I was 17 years old.  It was a sunny day.  I don’t know why Renee and I started talking but we did.  We talked through the entire convocation speech.  She is as much a talker as me.  I don’t remember what we said.  I only know that we hit it off, liked each other, must have found things in common.  On that day, a friendship began.
