• I fell in love with Jennie during my last year at Eller College of Management while I was a student employee at the University. Although, we did not meet at the University of Arizona, we share a passion for the University.

  • Every anniversary, I always pause and thank Residence Life for finding my husband for me. We lived next door to each other in Kaibab Huachuca on the 4th floor. We have been together for 9 years and celebrated our 3-year wedding anniversary in October.

  • At the beginning of my sophomore year (1965) I suggested to someone I had just met that we go bowling. At the bowling alley we met Dave Dress who was working the desk there. He dated my friend and I dated a friend of his off and on until Dave left to join the Air Force in 1967.

  • I moved into Sun Terrace (the University had rented it to use as a dorm) in 1988 and met John. I thought that he was a dork and he didn’t care much for me either.
