“Sandy needed a typewriter to fill out a summer job application,” he says. “I offered mine. We talked while she typed, and that launched our friendship.”

Both Brian and Sandy earned bachelor’s degrees in mechanical engineering in 1994. The pair married in 1995.

One of their favorite shared campus experiences was winning a Homecoming dance competition at the Puck – “and differential equations,” he adds.

Today Brian works as an intellectual property attorney and Sandy is an orthopedic surgeon.

Their relationship advice?

“Enjoy everyday things together,” he says.
