“That was probably our first friend group on campus, and how we got more connected to CCF and campus in general,” she says. “We were the only two freshman in the group, and eight-hour car drives help you get to know people better!”

In 2020, Lindsay earned a bachelor’s degree in English and Garrett earned bachelor’s degrees in architectural engineering and civil engineering. The pair married in May 2020.

As students, Lindsay says one of the shared favorite experiences was running through campus together. 

Their relationship advice?

“Take time to really get to know each other and grow your friendship,” she says. “Communication is key – talk about things you’re passionate about and listen. Care about each other’s lives and learn healthy ways to talk through disagreements.”
