Greg and I both majored in history at Adelphi. We were also both in the Honors College and worked as Tour Guides in the Admissions Office. He was a Kappa Sigma while I was a Delta Delta Delta, and we were both active in Greek life on campus. However, Greg and I never crossed paths while at Adelphi. When I started late as a freshman in Spring 2008, he was a senior. He graduated and went on to finish the STEP program, thus leaving his position in Admissions and stepping back from Greek activities. It wasn't until three years later, at the start of my senior year, that we finally met at a bar near campus (RIP Patti and Johnny's). We discovered not only these similarities, but that we also shared many mutual friends. We were married last May. While we never walked the Adelphi campus together, we still feel the shared experience of attending and consider it our home. I think you would be hard pressed to find a university that could create such a bond with its students.
