School Anniversary? How to find your classmates in the real world

If you’re reminiscing about your good old days and thinking about how simple it used to be, there is a good chance you’d also be missing your former classmates and wonder what they are doing. One can often find themselves thinking about school and college days with a sense of nostalgia and memories dwelling up. If it happens to you too, you should do something.

With a school anniversary coming up, you might even get invites and want a heads-up on what people have been up to for so many years you haven’t met them. You might even be back from a reunion and thinking of reconnecting but already missed the numbers or details even about your old mates, which is a bummer.

This article talks about how to find your classmates in the real world. Read on to find ways with which you can reach out to people and re-establish old connections to bring them to life again, over nostalgic memories.

Social Media

Finding your friends on social media is an excellent way to connect. You can get to know their families, have a look at their pictures, know their timeline, and everything they want to show to the people connected to them. Chances are you’ll find quite a few friends on at least one of the many social media websites.

However, one drawback of this method is that not everyone is on social media. People who even have social media accounts aren’t necessarily regularly active on them. Besides, there are a lot of people with the same name, and they don’t necessarily have a recognizable profile picture. So it is a wild bet when you create an account if you’ll find the person you’re looking for and does not really assure whether you’ll be able to talk to them.

Word of Mouth

The old school trick by finding people through word of mouth has lasted a long time. You can try talking to people who are connected to you, or who are available online and try getting through the human chain to reach the people you want to communicate with through phone numbers, addresses, or even work contacts.

You may not be able to find a lot of people through this method because it falls short when it comes to the direction in which the human chain expands. In today’s day and age, changing phones might not be especially helpful for this method, though. Not all contacts retain; some even move out of the country and lose touch, so it is almost impossible to be dependent on this method. One can try, but when you’re looking for someone particular, this might not be particularly handy for the same.

Work Records

Everyone that you have gone to school or college with must work somewhere or would have at some point in time, so this is one of the easiest methods to find out about your old classmates. You can search up people through their business contacts, which can be very effective since there is authenticity in that sort of a method.

Looking for people is much easier when it is through a legitimate system, and since employers need proper information, this is actually almost a fool-proof method to be able to connect with an old friend. All you need is their name and perhaps where they work, and you can get background information about them quite easily. Connect the dots about schooling or whatever background you shared in the past, to confirm the same and voila!


Getting along with old classmates is surely fun when there has been a considerable time since you last met them. This reunion can be turned into immense fun when creativity is on the table. For this, you can find some games that can be incorporated in the reunion party so that everyone has their share of fun. Now it’s up to you whether you want to take time to know about each other’s current life and then finalize the date for the reunion. However, you can also decide on an impromptu reunion party in which everyone is going to be amazed at meeting everyone after such a long time.
