Alumni - An AU Love Story
Dave '80 and Kathy (Ferro) '81 Barrett

Dave ‘80 and Kathy (Ferro) '81 BarrettMy husband and I met when I was a freshman at Alfred and he was a sophomore. The first day I met him I was in a silvery glittered dress on my way to an Alfred Halloween party - I looked at him and knew that he was someone I definitely wanted to know. By Christmas break we were together and have been ever since. It's been 30 years, 5 kids and an amazing ride.

Friends that attended our wedding:
Dudley West (attended Alfred '76 and '77) was our best man. Steve Mendelsohn '81 and Clint Braine '80 were ushers, and Sue Briskie '81 was a bridesmaid. Many Alfred friends were at the wedding: Mary McManus ('81), Dan Tinsman '78, Kim Wilson (attended Alfred '77 -'78, Kit Jenkins, Cathy Frezza '81, Marcella Morgese '82, Don Crumrine '80, Harry Flamm '80, Nancy DeWitt '81 and Ginger Mills '81.

We have so many wonderful memories of Alfred, but our favorite shared memory is a huge snowball fight (with many of the people above) outside of the Brick, with many blackberry brandy breaks.
