Where did you meet?
Tom saw Jenessa working at the Callahan Library but we first starting talking at extra help for a computer class. Nine months later we had a back-to-back class where we sat in the same seats so saw each other every Tuesday and Thursday. Jenessa then asked Tom to help her with projects for the class. About five years later he proposed in NYC while iceskating on December 6, 2015. We are looking to get married winter 2017!

Did you take any classes together?
We took COM210 together with Professor McAllister (who is the reason we met at extra help).
