Someone reminded us that Class Reunions are held as part of the Home Coming at the campuses.
- Tears of sorrow fell from many sayas and alumni when they learned that their alma mater has been branded as a “Thabon Kyaung” (by U Thaung and his toadies) and that the Swel Daw Bins had been decimated.
- Many felt that they would never see their alma mater in good shape again.
- U Aye Myint (EP72, Minister for Science and Technology) did not forget his roots.

- Tears of joy fell from many sayas and alumni when they learned that SPZP-2012 will be held in the Gyogone Campus.
