Alumni - An AU Love Story
Sayre '98 and Elizabeth (West) '97 Stevens

Sayre and I met at a Habitat For Humanity Meeting in January of 1996. I was a junior and Sayre had just transferred to Alfred. We both signed up for the Spring Break trip to help build a Habitat Home in Columbus, GA. We got to know each other from fundraising efforts in the chapter and talking all the way to Georgia and back! Although our paths went separate ways for some time- Sayre went to Japan to study abroad, then I graduated and went to California for a year serving with AmeriCorps. The connection we had made at Alfred kept us together while we both set out to explore.

We have fond memories of breakfast at the Jet, hanging out with friends at our apartments, fun parties, road trips, and Alex's.

We returned to Alfred in August 2000 and were married in Susan Howell Hall. Our reception was in the Campus Center. It was a perfect day in a beautiful place. Many fellow alumni joined us to celebrate our day. It has been a great 13 years!
