crap, when I graduated, all i got from GMI was a diploma...
Thanks for the GMI post!99-2003 AlumI actually arrived post-GMI, in the early Kettering years.My friends and I (not true Flint expats, of course) all reflected on how wonderful it was to go to school in a town that only cared if you were selling drugs or shooting people. You could drive illegal golfcarts/baja buggies/minibikes all over the streets of Flint without so much as a how-do-you-do from the Flint police.
Ha, I was the first class to graduate as Kettering University. I now live in LA. No matter how insane Flint is, I love it. I just found this website and it brings back memories.
I grew up wearing GMI sweatshirts that were a size too big because my Dad figured I'd grow into them. To this day, I like baggy clothes.
Thanks for commenting. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at www.teardownbook.com.
