August 2004
Nick '05 Taylor Aiken Faerber '08
"We were in biology class and lab together. He was also on the baseball team and I was an athletic training student. I left a note on his bicycle after an exam and the rest is history. We married in September 2009 and now have four and two year old boys. "
June 1947
Verlon '48 and Mildred Mangrum Feller '49
"It started when I was asked to accompany Verlon and 3 of his friends to sing at a revival meeting at DaVilla United Methodist Church, one of Verlon’s ministerial student appointments near Cameron, Texas."
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."
