“He struck up a conversation with me after his buddy pointed me out and said, ‘Hey she’s cute, go talk to her’,” she says. “We went on a date the next day, and we’ve been together ever since!”

Currently a senior in civil engineering, Kaitlyn says one of her favorite memories was of their first St. Pat’s celebration as a couple in 2019, when they participated in the Greek life activities and traditions. The couple plans to marry after she graduates this May. 

“After I graduate we are moving to Evansville, where I have accepted a job as an engineer at Traylor Brothers,” she says. “We are super excited and grateful to S&T for bringing us together.”

Their relationship advice?

“It’s the little stuff that matters in the end,” she says. “I remember most fondly studying in the library together, holding hands walking through campus, and stopping to get Einstein’s coffee. It doesn’t have to be a big, grand thing to be meaningful.”
