Finding Love on Comm Ave

Photo essay celebrates some of the many BU couples who have said “I do”

With Valentine’s Day approaching, BU Today reached out to some of the many Terrier married couples who met while studying at BU or after they graduated. Some fell in love when one of them was a student and the other was working at the University. According to Development & Alumni Relations, 17,954 alumni have married a fellow Terrier since the 1920s. That’s 8,977 couples. The peak decade was the 1980s, when more than 4,100 walked down the aisle together.

To mark Cupid’s big day, BU photographer Cydney Scott visited some local Terrier couples to find out how they first came together. The stories span some six decades.

Are you half of a Terrier couple? Share your story in the Comment section below.

Jeff Burns and Sara Huber

When Jeff Burns (COM’01) survived a nasty car accident on Martin Luther King Day in 2002 because he was wearing a seatbelt, he immediately emailed all of his contacts to stress the importance of buckling up. One of those contacts was Sarah Huber (SED’03,’08), just an acquaintance at the time. They struck up an email conversation and began dating. Four years to the day after the accident, on MLK Day in 2006, Jeff proposed. Now married, Jeff and Sarah have two children, Eli, 5, and Ryan, 8 months, and two dogs, Freddy, a Boston terrier, and Gilroy, a rescued mix, each named for a Terrier hockey great—Freddy Meyer (MET’03) and Matt Gilroy (MET’09). The couple kept the license plate from the car totaled in the accident as a reminder of how their romance began.

Diana Geigis and Ernie Geigi

Diana Santoro Geigis (CAS’56) and Ernie Geigis (CAS’55) crossed paths briefly during a meeting of the Student Christian Association more than 60 years ago. Diana was a freshman and Ernie a sophomore. The meeting ended before they had a chance to really talk, so when they ran into each other at CAS several days later, Ernie seized the opportunity and asked Diana if she was planning to attend a square dance that evening at the School of Theology. They arranged to meet there, and “that was the end of meeting other people,” Diana says with a smile. They will celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary in June with their two children and their families. Asked the secret to a happy marriage: “It’s about spending time together,” Diana says.

Donna Connor and Brian Connor

Donna DeRosa Connor (CAS’89) and Brian Connor met during their freshman orientation in July in a Warren Towers elevator. They felt an instant attraction (Donna says she was drawn to Brian’s blue eyes), but both were then dating other people. But when they returned that fall to start freshman year, they looked each other up and started dating. Brian, who had been an ROTC student at ENG, left BU and later graduated from Framingham State College. They married in 1992 and today have four children. The oldest, Megan (SED’18, CAS’18), is a BU sophomore. Donna is an administrative coordinator at the College of General Studies, and Brian is a principal software engineer at AOL.

Sharon Sprague and Rob Sprague

Sharon Chung Sprague (COM’96) and Rob Sprague (SAR’96) met in their freshman English class in 1992. When Sharon needed help navigating her way to her next class, Rob happily obliged. “Our first official date was on Valentine’s Day” that year, Sharon says. The memory of that first date remains vivid for Rob. “We went ice skating at Walter Brown Arena, and then went into the city for dinner and a show.” They are pictured with sons Will, 10 (right), and Bennet, 7, in front of Marsh Chapel, where they were married 13 years ago.

Ed O'Brien and Trisha O'Brien

Ed O’Brien (MET’88) met his wife, Trisha Greenwood O’Brien, at a management class they were both taking in 1981. At the time, Trisha was an administrative assistant at the Goldman School of Dental Medicine and the course was for her job. “I shared my Life Savers with her at breaks (not the red ones—I didn’t know her well enough yet to spare a coveted cherry Life Saver),” Ed recalls. “We had our first date that March, with dinner at the old Red Coach Grille on Memorial Drive, across the river from the campus. This was followed by a stop at the lounge on the top floor of the old Howard Johnson’s overlooking Kenmore Square. We married in October 1982, and four kids later, we’re still going strong.”

Julie Parker and Scott Parker

Julie Onufrak Parker (CAS’05) and Scott Parker (CAS’06) met through mutual friends as BU undergrads. “We had classes in the language lab in CAS at around the same time, so we’d both try to get there early (despite the notoriously early classes) so we could chat for a few minutes before heading off to French (me) and Chinese (him),” says Julie. They were married in 2010 and at least 30 Terriers attended. Today, Julie manages communications for a Boston law firm, and Scott is earning a PhD in mechanical engineering at Tufts. Julie says they still see “tons of BU friends regularly,” including many who were at their wedding.

Tony Rivera and Pam Rivera

Tony Rivera (ENG’89) and his wife, Pam Galliatt Rivera (CAS’89), met in spring 1987 at cheerleading tryouts and started dating the following fall. At the time, Tony was in ROTC and after graduating became a US Army officer. The two married in October 1991, after Tony returned from Saudi Arabia and Kuwait, where he’d been deployed during Operation Desert Storm. Today, they are the proud parents of three.

Marc Hurdel and Tabitha Watson

Marc Hurdle (Questrom’12, MET'16) and Tabitha Watson (CAS’12, COM’12, Questrom'19) are engaged and plan to marry next March in Chicago, Watson’s home town. They met the summer before junior year in the Warren Towers dining hall. “I thought Marc was really cute when we first met,” says Watson, now senior assistant director for visitor experience at BU's Admissions Center. “But I wasn’t planning to give him the time of day. Like at all. He was, thank God, extremely persistent and wouldn’t take no for an answer when he asked me out. He knew this would work, and he was right.”

    Even old professors find love on Comm Ave… I (SAR ’82) teach at SAR and met my husband 7 years before he began working at Questrom School of Management. But it wasn’t until he came to BU that we reconnected in Nov. 2010. Six weeks later we were engaged and married in Aug 2011 at ages 53 and 59. Sometimes you just know when it’s right!

  • Bhoomi Kotak on 02.11.2016 at 7:24 am

    It’s on 1st January 2017.
    It hard to express the fun involved with wedding planning. We’re both BU Dental students who met about two years ago while applying to Dental school. Fortunately, we’re both terriers now and are planning our wedding for January.
    We graduated from the same high school and his face looked familiar when I first saw him two years ago. We had been travelling all through out the year for interviews and exams for dental school and most of our conversations happened over skype and Facetime. That’s how we fell in love. I look back at our conversations now and save a few snap shots to show our great grand children. :)

  • Richard Yeo on 02.11.2016 at 8:42 am

    Elinor and I met when we were chaplains at BU in 1959. Our offices were next to each other on Bay State. Our shared secretary had a great time matching us up – and sending our names to Honeymoon Havens in the Poconos. I think our entire courtship was attending BU hockey – a reach for a woman who went to a girls school and a womens college, a first sign of complete sacrifice. Our first two sons were born at the old BU hospital and ran around on the fenced lawn of what was then the Faculty Club. Lovely picture of Ernie and Diana above – Ernie and I were in CLA55 (now CAS). He was then in Elinor’s class at Union Seminary.

  • BU staffer on 02.11.2016 at 8:43 am

    Great photos! A heartwarming essay.

  • Patrick Mahinge on 02.11.2016 at 10:14 am

    Wow! These are lovely photos. A lot of kudos to the photographer. And the article is timely.

  • Student on 02.11.2016 at 10:50 am

    These are nice photos and the article is well written, but notice how it’s solely hetero relationships.

    • John O'Rourke, BU Today on 02.11.2016 at 12:14 pm

      Unfortunately, we heard from no LGBTQ couples when we sent out a query via our social media channels. We would have loved to have featured an LGBTQ couple.

      • Ashley Anderson on 02.11.2016 at 1:01 pm

        I wonder if by limiting it to married couples, this contributed to less LGBTQ couples submitting stories?
        Sincerely,
        Ashley Anderson STH/SSW ’14

      • Laura Truex on 02.11.2016 at 3:38 pm

        Hi,

        I missed your original query about this piece, but I would have happily shared my story! My fiancée Melissa (COM ’11) and I (SAR ’12, ’14) met freshman year through mutual friends in Warren Towers. We began dating the summer after our sophomore year and are getting married this coming September! We’re planning to take our engagement photos on campus this spring :)

        • Cydney on 02.11.2016 at 5:40 pm

          Yay Laura! Thanks for sharing and I’m so sorry to have missed the chance to photograph you and your fiancee!

    • Jeannette Quinn on 02.12.2016 at 7:32 am

      This was my thought as well – only hetero relationships. I also think that limiting it to married couples might have discouraged folks. I’m sure there are many LGBTQ who have met and formed committed relationships on Comm Ave.

      • cydney on 02.12.2016 at 9:32 am

        Our “call out” read ; “Calling all alumni in the Boston area: Did you meet your significant other at BU? Let us know and you could be featured in a Valentine’s Day story on BU Today.”
        So we certainly weren’t limiting, but it’s possible readers interpreted that to mean only married couples despite the wording being otherwise. Thanks for your comment!

  • Cheryl Webb Scott on 02.11.2016 at 11:44 am

    Really nice idea for a picture story and the photographs are wonderful.

  • Rachael on 02.11.2016 at 11:58 am

    My husband Rafi (CAS ’12) and I (SED ’10) met the fall of 2008 at BU Hillel. We still visit BU every time we return to Boston to reminisce all of our early dates!

  • Amy on 02.11.2016 at 12:13 pm

    I met my husband that first day of school at Splash (2008). He was the guy holding the sign up clipboard for the Catholic Center. Neither of use were interested in each other, but became friends over that year. Fortunately, he stuck around for a Ph.D. program (ENG’09,’11,’13), so we started dating the following Fall.

    We married after I graduated (ENG’12) and celebrated with BU friends that spanned 8 years on campus. This past November, we welcomed our baby girl (Estimated 2038)

  • Vanessa Colleran on 02.11.2016 at 12:39 pm

    My husband (SAR ’08) and I (SED ’10) met in Warren Towers, where we both lived, my freshman year. He proposed to me on the ice at Agannis Arena after only one year of dating (I was only 19 years old)! We got married five years later (July 14, 2012) and just had our first baby, Samuel, on Nov. 23, 2015.

  • Barbara Strauss Neuerman on 02.11.2016 at 12:52 pm

    We met at a CLA Russian History class taught by an old Polish Cavalry officer (really) in January of 1971. Marc and I have been married for more than 42 years and stay in touch with a number of BU friends.

  • Brianna H. on 02.11.2016 at 1:01 pm

    My husband (CGS ’07, COM ’09) and I (COM ’12) met at the BUTV station my freshman year of college. We got married in July of 2015. Our photographers were both BU alumni, our officiant was a BU alum, and many of our groomsmen were fellow Terriers as well!

  • Pamela Vaughan on 02.11.2016 at 1:18 pm

    I love this! I met my husband while we were both undergrads at BU in 2007 (I graduated from COM, and he graduated from SED). We met through mutual friends, we now have two awesome kids, and this year we’ll be celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary. Thanks for the love connection, BU :-)

  • Laura dulac on 02.11.2016 at 1:29 pm

    I met my husband my first night at BU. We both lived on the 4th floor ofClaflin Hall. We just had our 20th wedding anniversary and hope that one of our three girls will one day be a Terrier!

  • Glen Macnow on 02.11.2016 at 2:09 pm

    Myles Standish Hall, fall of 1975. We actually stood on top of the building during the World Series to watch that little patch of Fenway Park you could see from there.

    Years later, when we saw “Good Will Hunting,” we said, “Hey, they stole our story about meeting during the World Series.” Yeah, we were falling for each other the night Fisk hit that homer. Where does Robin Williams come off taking our story?

    My wife, Judy Stone, was CLA, class of 1976. I was SPC, ’77.

    It’s 40 years later, and we moved from Boston to Florida to Detroit to Philadelphia in 1987. We still try to get up for the Beanpot every couple of years.

    And, oh yeah, one of the kids born out of our story ended up at BU, class of 2008. Drum major for the marching band. So it all worked out pretty well.

  • Alexis on 02.11.2016 at 2:37 pm

    Very sweet piece! Any idea where I can get my hands on the Terrier sweaters the Riveras are wearing??

  • Robin on 02.11.2016 at 3:59 pm

    My husband and I met in the elevator of A Tower in Warren during move-in 1986, when he offered to help me carry my newly-rented mini-fridge. I was a senior with a front single, and he was a freshman in a double on the floor above mine. We were friends first — in fact, I got him the phone number of a girl I worked with in the Warren cafeteria during that period. By the end of October, though, we admitted we both wanted more than a friendship. Our first official date was Halloween Night.

  • Linda Talanian on 02.11.2016 at 4:31 pm

    Wonderful stories and great photos. Terrific follow up stories of other connections.

  • Audrey on 02.11.2016 at 5:03 pm

    My husband, Gorka, and I became friends during our senior year (’06). He struck up a conversation with me while I was studying on a Friday afternoon. We were married in Brookline three years later.

  • Leah Ronan on 02.11.2016 at 6:21 pm

    My husband Ed Ronan (91) and I met during our sophomore year in college. Although I didn’t graduate from BU, sometimes I feel like I went there and most people we know, as adults, think that I did. I spent many many nights at Walter Brown Arena watching him play hockey and our Christian life together began on Sunday nights at Marsh Chapel. I am forever grateful for my time at Boston University falling in love with my husband!! We will celebrate our 22nd wedding anniversary this summer.

  • Deb Berry on 02.11.2016 at 6:52 pm

    I love this story, especially because my folks are Diana and Ernie Geigis. BU means so much to them, and they really appreciate the interest the university has taken in their BU journey over the years. Marvelous, uplifting piece.

  • Greg on 02.11.2016 at 6:57 pm

    I met my wife Judy at SED (both ’74) Our daughter met her husband (both COM ’05) on their first day in Warren Towers. Our son (CAS ’07) married outside the Terrier faith (Brown ’08)

  • Emma Logan on 02.11.2016 at 7:05 pm

    My husband Rob and I met my junior year of college in 2010. He was in a ScD program in Sargent at the time and I was studying psych and neuroscience undergrad (class of 2011.) We had our first kiss on a bench outside Shelton Hall that summer. We married in 2014 and are expecting our first baby in a few weeks!!

  • Kenric on 02.11.2016 at 8:10 pm

    Terrific photos and article

  • Kara Coffey on 02.11.2016 at 8:45 pm

    My husband Brian (CAS ’05) and I (CAS ’05, SED ’06) met in Myles Standish our sophomore year, though it wasn’t until we were both RAs on staff there our senior year that we became great friends, though we were both dating other people. We eventually were both single at the same time and realized we wanted more than friendship! We ended up going to different medical schools but dated long-distance, then couples-matched together for residency and now we’re both practicing pediatricians. We were married in 2014 after seven years of dating…and twelve years after running into each other at Myles!

  • Obie Sims on 02.11.2016 at 9:52 pm

    My wife, Zenda, (COM’99) and I (SMG’98) met at the GSU on one of the last days of her freshman year and my sophomore year. We tied the knot in 2004 surrounded by tons of Alumni… 12 years down, 88 more to go… GO BU!!

  • Heather Chalson on 02.11.2016 at 10:14 pm

    We met through very close friends during our senior year (Adam, ENG ’02 and me, CFA ’02 & ’03) and soon realized that our paths crossed many times during the previous years although we did not know it then. After almost nine years together, we married in May 2011 and welcomed our daughter in Dec 2012 and our son in Jan 2015 and while we were tempted to name them Scarlet and Rhett, we did not :) We celebrated our first wedding anniversary in Boston and made a special visit to campus for old times sake. We are looking forward to bringing our children there for a visit soon to show them where our family’s story began!

  • Nikki on 02.11.2016 at 10:16 pm

    Marsh Chapel is the place where my husband and I both met as freshmen undergrads in CFA and CAS. Fast forward to 2 months after graduation, when we wed in that very chapel where we met. Even Rhett the Terrier was a special guest during our wedding reception, wearing his finest tuxedo before slipping into the jersey of our beloved BU hockey team! Forever and always a BU couple!

  • Kate on 02.11.2016 at 10:23 pm

    My husband Zach and I met within the first few weeks of my freshman year (2002). Zach was a Sophomore but had friends that lived in Rich Hall where I was living. He had a party at his off campus house and one of his friends invited me. We dated all four years of college and got married in 2010. We just had our daughter last year and we have been together for 13 years!

  • Malissa on 02.12.2016 at 7:39 am

    My husband and I met in 1980, my freshman year and his junior. We lived on the same floor in a brownstone on Buswell St. I was so upset not to be in a freshman dorm but later appreciated how nice the brownstone was vs the craziness of Warren Towers. We started actually dating in the summer of 1981 and have been married 31 years. We have a son, 22 who is a first year environmental law student at Vermont Law.

  • Stacy Miller on 02.12.2016 at 7:58 am

    My husband, Colonel Jody Miller (CAS ’91) and I (CAS ’93) met at a ROTC award banquet in April 1991. We married in 1994 and have been together for the entirety of his Army career, to include 14-moves and about 10-years separated by deployments and training. We have two boys, ages 16 & 14.

    • JC Miller on 02.12.2016 at 11:57 am

      You are the best thing that ever happened to me at B.U.!!!

    • Evelyn on 02.16.2016 at 7:27 am

      Stacy,

      Wow! You and your husband must have done things right to survive those 14 moves and 10 years of physical separation! You’re an inspiration to all married couples.

  • Lissette on 02.12.2016 at 9:17 am

    We join the BU couples! I met my husband my Senior year at BU (CAS ’89) (previously CLA) He had just started his first year at BU Dental School, class 1992!! We celebrate this year our 24th year anniversary and this year we had the honor to take our daughter to start her freshmen year at BU!!! CGS class of 2019!!

  • Lauren Granstrom on 02.12.2016 at 9:47 am

    My fiancé Joe Harvey and I (both CAS ’10) met at orientation the summer before freshman year (2006). We are both from Colorado and actually went to high school 10 minutes away from each other at schools that competed in sports, but we never met in Colorado. He and his best friend, Adam Waters (CAS ’10), decided to go to BU and I met Adam first at orientation. I couldn’t believe there was another student from Colorado, I was so excited. And then he introduced me to Joe, and now I had two Colorado friends in Boston. I also immediately had a crush on Joe, because he’s funny and easy going and very cute. Of course, he had a girlfriend at the time, so we were just friends. And that was our story through almost 4 years of college. I loved hanging out with my Colorado friends, and especially when I was home sick, but I always secretly pined over Joe. All of my friends knew I had a crush on him, but I did a good job of hiding it from Joe. When he was finally single at the beginning of senior year, I had thought of us as friends for so long that I didn’t even tell him how I really felt. It took a whole year of hanging out and flirting a little for both of us to finally realize our feelings were mutual. We started our relationship during Senior Week right before graduation, and right before Joe was heading back to Colorado and I was staying in Boston for the summer, both unsure of our future plans. I think the only thing we both knew was that we were right for each other. I moved back to Colorado that fall and we’ve been together ever since. I don’t know how I was so lucky to meet the greatest Colorado guy out in Boston. Needless to say, we both know that going to BU was the best decision we’ve made. After 10 years of knowing each other and 6 years of dating, we’ll be getting married September 30 in Colorado with many of our fellow Terriers there to share in our joy. Proud to BU!

  • Jeff Brown on 02.12.2016 at 9:48 am

    Add one more couple to your list! In the spring of my senior year (SMG ’89) I met Kristi Jackson Brown (COM ’91). We hit it off right away but didn’t think there was much chance of a long term relationship because I was done in a couple months–boy were we wrong! Coming up on our 24th wedding anniversary! We have a boy and girl, 18 and 16 who are both amazing! Thinking back on it, the path we took was wildly unpredictable but I wouldn’t change a thing!

  • Patty Hyland on 02.12.2016 at 10:50 am

    My husband (COM ’08) and I (CFA ’06) met fencing épée at the BU Fencing Club. We’d both been drawn there by our childhood love of swashbuckling stories like The Three Musketeers and Captain Blood. At our wedding, a number of fellow BU fencers (including another married couple from the team) presented us with a wooden sword that they’d passed around for all the guests to sign. The couple that slays together stays together! ;)

  • Justin on 02.12.2016 at 11:13 am

    I saw her in Stats class in sophomore year 2012 and I remember telling my buddy “Who is that Goddess? Thats the kind of girl I would love to meet but I could never wind up with” and I so didnt act on it at the time. She dropped the class for another soon after. A semester later, I joined ZBT and there she was at my first party. I went up to her, she recognized me from class, and we hit it off. For a while we were just really good friends until New Years 2014-2015. She invited me to her place and I got snowed in for a week. After seeing how well I got along with her family, she finally gave me a chance at more. We have been together ever since and plan to get married in the distant future.

  • Marlene MacKay MacLeod on 02.12.2016 at 11:47 am

    Don MacLeod (CLA 58, SED 65) and I (SED 61, 69) met in 1958 when Don was an All-American hockey player and Captain of the Baseball Team. We were married in 1962 after he returned from playing 4 years in the Braves Organization. We have been married for 53 years and have 3 grown children and 8 grandchildren. Don was inducted into the BU Hall of Fame in 1973.

  • Pamela Davies on 02.12.2016 at 1:32 pm

    I love this story! My husband (GRS ’99) and I (COM ’99) first met when he was my TA (whoops! we didn’t start dating until the semester finished, promise) for Astronomy 101. The first day of class, when he walked in, I turned to the girl sitting next to me (whom I have never spoken to, before or since — weirdly she never sat near me again) and said either “I’m going to marry him” or “I’m going to have his children.” It doesn’t really matter, though, both ended up being true, because I’m either persistent or it was meant to be.

  • Han on 02.12.2016 at 3:06 pm

    My wife Tiffany (CAS ’97, ’01) and I (CAS ’96) met in 1998 through her then-roommate Janine Waldman (Guido) (CAS ’97) via participation on the CAS Young Alumni Committee. Tiffany & I realized we recognized each other, as we had overlapping social circles and mutual friends. We started dating a few weeks later, with our shared love of BU being a huge part of our lives ever since.

    We finally got engaged in 2011 and married in 2013. We incorporated BU throughout our engagement and wedding, from me hiring Rhett to surprise Tiffany during my proposal, to our engagement photos throughout the BU campus, and to our wedding that was attended by 33 fellow BU alumni.

    We’ve lived in Boston throughout our time together and remain involved in the BU alumni community as well as continue our feverish support of BU hockey. Let’s go Terriers!

  • Carolyn Conley-Das on 02.12.2016 at 4:24 pm

    I think we may be the most recently married BU couple–my husband Anik and I got married 3 weeks ago! We met as freshmen in ’08, started dating in 2011, and just got married on our 5th anniversary!

  • Joseph Steindl on 02.12.2016 at 4:24 pm

    I walked into a room at work with my BU sweater on. The girl, who was sitting there, said ‘you go to BU! I go to BU too!’ That was 31 years ago. That girl and I have been married for the past 27 of those 31 years.

  • Norm Blanchard on 02.12.2016 at 5:41 pm

    I (Questrom ’88, ’94) met my wife Maura (MET ’92) when we were both working at the Registrar’s Office (different areas!) in 1989. We started dating a couple of years later, got married at Marsh Chapel in 1994, and have been blissfully happy ever since! I still work at BU (Questrom), and our older daughter attends BU Academy. Both of our daughters have been taught two things since they could speak: “Who is the greatest hockey player of all time?” (“Bobby Orr”) and “Where will you NEVER go to college?” (“BC”)

  • Stacey Rosen on 02.12.2016 at 8:57 pm

    My husband, Ritchard, CLA ’80 and I, SAR ’80 met the 3rd week of freshman year at BU, Sept 1976, in Warren Towers, the Zoo. We started dating over winter break . We both graduated in 1980, And married in 1982, after 6 years of dating. We now live in NJ and have 2 sons ages 28 & 25.

  • Marybeth O'Malley Prusher on 02.14.2016 at 11:54 am

    We found love at BU too! In 1982 I was freshman in Warren and my roomie was obsessed with a guy from student gov’t that appeared on the cover of the Freep. For the next two years every time she passed him on campus, she came home and excitedly told us how she saw “Craig” today! My junior year I sat in an orientation meeting for West Campus RA’s and was chatting unsuspectingly with a guy by the same name. When the meeting began and we stood to introduce ourselves, he said his full name and I began to laugh. I told him the story, we struck up a friendship and a few months later we began dating! Six years later we were married – after I graduated COM’86 and he graduated CLA’85, LAW’88! Twenty-three years later our oldest daughter graduated in the BU class of CLA’13 (and worked as an RA too!). We love BU for lots of reasons but the best reason is our 26 year marriage and the 3 beautiful kids it brought us! Go Terrier Love!

    This may not strictly count, but I graduated CLA/CAS in 1985, and married a girl from BU Binghamton University :-) She did come visit me on campus (I reciprocated and visited her “BU”), and loved our campus, so I treat her as an honorary “BU” grad !
    Our son has his application in now…

    My husband of 6 years (CFA ’06) and I (SED ’06) met freshman year through mutual friends. Though it took almost 2 years for us to finally get together, we had our first date on July 4th 2004 in Boston. We have many great memories at BU, especially our wedding at Marsh Chapel in 2009. We now have a 6 month old son, and we can’t wait to take him back to BU to share all of the wonderful memories we had there. Thanks for a fun story!

    I would have loved to see more diversity of couples considering this article seems mainly focused on white heterosexual couples. Still, very cute stories

    There are numerous BU alumni on Cape Cod. We haven’t begun to reach them. We have a handful of alumni at Cape Cod events. How can we expand on our attendance?
