“Through mutual friends, we met up for our date out to Buffalo Wild Wings and to see a movie,” she says. “From there, I visited him on campus on weekends and met all of his new fraternity brothers. I started at S&T in August 2016, and we became inseparable.” 

As students, one of their favorite shared campus experiences was during Greek week competitions, when they would cheer on each other’s team until they both lost their voices. In addition, Rebecka, a senior in ceramic engineering, and Will, a 2020 engineering management graduate, credit their relationship for providing a strong support system while going through classes. They plan to marry on April 9, 2022.

Their relationship advice?

Today Will works as a field engineer for Kiewit. Rebecka is a senior in ceramic engineering and currently serves as both a peer learning assistant for Chem 1310 and president of the Student Union Board.

“Enjoy the little things while you can, work and school and life start to pick up way before you know it.”
