In honor of Valentine’s Day, more than 70 Fordham alumni couples—from the 1960s to the Class of 2019—responded to a call from the alumni relations office to share their Fordham love stories on social media.

Some couples hit it off immediately—more than a few noted that they met their loved one on their very first day on campus. Others crossed paths as seniors, or were good friends for many years before getting together. Some only recently started dating; some are newlyweds; and others will soon be celebrating 25 or even 50 years of marriage, or are now the proud parents of Fordham students or alumni. Many of them were engaged on campus or married in the University Church.

From stories of blind dates and dating apps to lunch tables and libraries, these Fordham couples share at least one thing in common—they’re grateful that Fordham brought them together.

See the full Valentine’s Day album on the Fordham University Alumni Facebook page, which includes every submission we received.

Note: Although we loved reading all the stories alumni couples shared, we wish we had received even more! We hope we can continue to create an inclusive space for our diverse group of fellow Rams as we ask for similar story submissions in the future.
