Alumni connections can happen in all types of guises. Hilary and I went to the Encounters with Canada programme together at the Terry Fox Centre in Ottawa. This encounter was over 25 years ago! We reconnected a few years ago (thank you LinkedIn!). We realized we had so much in common- and she was curious (hence the name of her vlog!) about my sense of community involving alumni.
