“Who knew you could meet the love of your life at the end of a long week of sunburns and beer,” she says.

While at S&T, the couple enjoyed St. Pat’s activities and going out to local restaurants like the Locker Room and Shots.

“Believe it or not, we both still graduated – one of us magna cum laude,” she says. “In all seriousness, we made lifelong friendships at S&T and cherish our memories there. Our education has set us both up for success in our careers.”

 Samantha earned bachelor’s degrees in civil engineering and architectural engineering in 2014. Andrew earned a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering in 2015. The couple married in October 2017.

Today Samantha works as a water resource engineer at HR Green, and Andrew is a project manager at Anheuser-Busch.

Their relationship advice?

“Have fun and be nice to each other,” she says.
