Recent Cornell Graduate Travels 7,000 Miles Across The US To Surprise His College Friends

Recent graduate Lionel Chambers travels 7,000 miles across the country to surprise his best college friends.

Because no one can take the place of your college friends

It hasn’t been that long since Lionel Chambers and his college friends graduated from Cornell University.

But, it’s been long enough to get a taste of the real world, of working 9-5, of not getting to see and hang out with your favorite people everyday.

He explains that one of the wonderful things about going to a school like Cornell was meeting and becoming friends with students from all over the place.

This is a picture Lionel will treasure forever from his days at Cornell with his best college friends.

And one of the bad things, after graduation, they all scattered.

Most of us get that.

Most of us are not Lionel, who decided to do something about it.

He saved up some cash and over the course of three months traveled 7,000 miles across the US to surprise his best friends.

He traveled from the state of New Jersey to Upstate New York, Minnesota, Oregon, and lastly California.

He shares the journey, the joy, the surprises in this fun video.

Lionel explains how, in order to pull this off, he needed help from his friends’ parents and family.

Looks like there were a lot of willing participants.

Lionel Chambers was looking to get back the feeling his group of close college friends last had at their Cornell graduation.

Good for you, Lionel, for not waiting another moment to go after the important things in life and celebrating your wonderful friends. I can’t wait to see what you come up with next.

I actually talk a lot about the importance and power of friends in my latest book,

“Hope Possible: A Network News Anchor’s Thoughts On Losing Her Job, Finding Love, A New Career, And My Dog, Always My Dog.”
