Max Liquori '16 & Megan Termine '13
It became official Halloweekend 2010. Today, these sweethearts just moved into an apartment together in downtown Rochester.
"This relationship all started with the shy, low-voiced guy and the obnoxious, outgoing girl living across from each other in Mortimer Hall. It continues to grow in love and strength every day." — Megan Termine
Alisha Gruendike-Sheridan '11 & Todd Sheridan '11
It was 2008. He was the starting goalie on the hockey team. She was the student athletic trainer.
The couple married in August 2014 and now lives in New Jersey. (Alisha wishes Jimmy Z's delivered there.)
An occupational therapist at Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation, Alisha helps people with neurologic and spinal cord injuries. Todd works in Human Resources. He still plays and coaches hockey, and these sweethearts enjoy returning to campus from time to time to catch a game in the ice arena.

Jack and Jackie have been married for 62 years, engaged on Valentine's Day of 1956.
We met at Brockport and enjoyed our many years there and in our teaching and administration careers. We are now enjoying our retirement in Sun City Hilton Head, Bluffton, SC — playing lots of golf, swimming in Synchronettes, and using the most famous wood shop you have ever seen!" — Jackie Harten
These two have befriended several Brockport alumni couples who also happened to retire to Sun City.
Adam Standish '98/'00 & Betsy (Jerome) Standish '00
They met in Harmon Hall in the spring of 1997 — without knowing their dads were best friends in high school. Betsy's dad was even in Adam's parents' wedding.
Betsy loved to watch Adam play record-setting baseball. Today, Adam coaches their son, Mason, who plays baseball for the Brockport Bisons. They have a daughter named Addison who loves animals almost as much as her mom does.
Alyshia (Zurlick) O'Connor '04/'09 & Carl O'Connor '07/'09
These two love Brockport so much, even Ellsworth was a wedding guest.
Fun story: When they first started working together as RDs, they attended a speed-painting performance in the Seymour College Union Ballroom. One of the giveaways was a speed painting of John F. Kennedy. Carl wasn't happy when Alyshia won the painting instead of him. Little did he know, it would be hanging in their house five years later.
