I have no single most memorable experience; however, I had great job satisfaction working with fine faculty and staff. I enjoyed training students not what to think but how to think; having discussions with students and faculty; having coffee in the chart room and the other food services; helping students with letters of recommendation; seeing students in public places where they re-introduce themselves to me; working with student groups and seeing students succeed after first having difficulties. That is memorable to me.
There were great opportunities for growing; it was a relatively new state college. It is a fine place to live in Southern California, more specifically the Long Beach area.
I maintain a little contact. I occasionally bring lilies from my backyard to give to department secretaries and friends on campus, and I also attend the Bookstore Christmas Parties and things like that.
On weekends, enjoying our excellent library and resources. I spend my time reading books, newspapers, magazines, etc.; writing letters to the editors; traveling to visit my extended family; giving friends and relatives fruit from my backyard orchard.
