    A few years after he graduated,

    Have I made any mistakes? Is it correct to say "student days"?

    A few years after he graduated, Ben lost contact with almost all of his fellow students, although they had promised to one another to meet once a year to refresh the memories from their student days.

    "Their student days" is fine. However, earlier in the text you've used a preposition that doesn't belong there.
    I am not a teacher.

    The preposition "to" should be omitted.
    "Promised one another" is the correct phrase.

    You may also omit the "each other" altogether.
