• It was second semester freshman year and I was scrambling to find a new date to my upcoming Sigma Kappa date dash. Instead of asking one of my good guy friends I thought I would step out of my comfort zone and ask the cute guy that recently caught my eye in Beta Theta Pi.

  • My wife, Anna, and I have a love story out of the movies. After knowing each other only as softball teammates for a little over a year in Boston I was getting on a plane at 6 a.m. to go to Arizona for a U of A Alumni board meeting and got a tap on my shoulder.

  • I remember the first time I saw Jason; it was the first day of classes and he came bursting into my acting class 15 minutes late. He was wearing basketball shorts, a polo, a backwards hat and flip flops…nothing matched. He claims he saw me roll my eyes when he walked in.

  • 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.

Our first real meeting was our freshman year on the volleyball courts outside of the Arizona-Sonora dorms during a back-to-school barbecue. I joined her cousin’s... more

  • In September 1973 I was accepted into the Ph.D. program in comparative psychology at the UA. I was wandering around on the fifth floor of the Psychology Department looking for my office. I peeked into an office and there sat Lou Zimmer looking up at me with an “Oh, no” expression on his face.

  • Paul ’06 and Laura (Polito) Strangio ’06 were engaged at the University of Arizona on graduation day right on Legacy Lane in front of the Hall of Champions. Paul just knew he had to propose to Laura in a very special way and what could be better than at the U of A.

  • Jared and I met through mutual friends at the University of Arizona. Jared initially asked me on a date by asking to buy Girl Scout cookies from my troop on AIM instant messenger.

    We went on one date, but I wasn’t feeling the chemistry and told him so…. whoops!
