  1. The absence of gender non-normative and same-sex couples in this article and on BU’s current homepage is striking to me. BU be brave and willing to lead in 2018.

    1. Carrie, Every year, I focus on getting a wide range of terriers for Finding Love On Comm Ave. While last year’s photo essay included two same sex couples, I was very disappointed to find no gender non-normative or same sex couples for the project this year. In our many call outs for participants on social media none happened to respond. I also went to great lengths contacting as many LGBTQ groups on campus that I could find but again, no luck. I hope couples might see the photo essay this year and get in touch for the next one. Their lack of representation here is not from lack of effort, bravery, or willingness to lead.

  2. We loved reading the first year of these love stories, and of course loved especially being one of the featured couples last year. We especially enjoyed meeting Cydney. Could not wait to see what stories would be in the feature this year! Happy, fun stories to brighten up the year!

  3. Hi! My parents met at BU and would like to be featured in this next year. Their names are Pete and Christine Renzi and graduated from the school of engineering. How can I submit their story?
    Thank you!

  4. What a lovely collection – and timely.

    I admit, I’m relieved to see the very normal, non-exciting ways in which couples meet.

    And it’s totally not because I met the man I’m marrying next month at BU Debate Club (sigh).

  5. From personal experience here, both as alumni and employee I know that BU goes at great lengths to represent everyone, especially same sex individuals and couples. This includes the employment sector hiring and promoting as well. Very proud to be part of the BU family!

  6. I love the story and the photo! We had a great time working with Cydney. Just one small correction; our son’s name is spelled Adric – it is an anagram of Dirac – the British mathematician.
