Southwestern Sweethearts

Every love shares a story.
Each story has a beginning.

We are pleased to welcome you as Southwestern Sweethearts, celebrating all alumni couples who have joined their hearts and lives.

Alumni Couples





 Tell us your story

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."
August 2011
Gus '14 and Hillary Richard Crimm '15
"Gus sat in front of me in a history class. Gus would wear a baseball cap to class every day and would accidentally leave it underneath his desk. I would grab it for him and give it back. We eventually struck up a conversation and the rest is history."
December 1985
Leslie and Laura Michulka Penney, both '89
"I asked Laura to go to the SUB and she said no, multiple times. She said I was a dweeb with funny hair. She later said yes, funny hair and all. The rest, as they say, is history. Other stuff happened in between. We just celebrated 24 years of marriage."
