Alumni Achievement

Southwestern Sweethearts

September 1989
Jon Porter '93 and Nisa Sharma '92
"It all started at Reggae Fedt with Michael Smith and the Killer Bees. We had already met, but that night, we talked on the veranda until the band started packing to go, then we talked for four more hours. After that moment, it was forever."
March 2007
Matthew '07 and Amanda Figueroa Anthony '10
"We met at Destination:Service and once we came back we took two long walks around the baseball and soccer fields where we really got to know each other. It took me seven years after our first date at Wildfire in Georgetown to ask her to marry me, but now we have been husband and wife for almost two years now."
March 2002
John '03 and Melissa Raudales Zinda '05
"We met at a party in college; Jack was a Phi Delta Theta and I was independent. He came up and introduced himself to me and at a few parties I attended thereafter. We went on our first date in March 2002 to Chili’s in Georgetown."
