Reconnecting with old friends

Lately I've been feeling like I've outgrown a bunch of my friends. I don't actually want this to happen. How do you make old friendships new again?

I've found myself drifting from friends I've known for years. I get that this happens (I just graduated college) but it's rather distressing. I try to combat this but it feels like I'm going against the grain. It takes tons of calls, emails, and texts just to arrange a lunch.
Meanwhile the friendships I made more recently in college feel so much easier. It's not a huge ordeal to contact people, we'll call each other up to do stuff, and our conversations are much more frequent and interesting. I don't know how to apply this to the old friends, because I'm actually not *doing* anything at all!
So, any ideas on how I could get things back on track?
