If you met your future spouse on campus – whether at the Bean, on the intramural field, in the Optimist office, during class, before Chapel or at any of hundreds of other spots – we’re offering you the opportunity to share your story this month. Grab that old photo album (or CD, or flash drive) and post a photo on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with a sentence or two about how you met. Add the hashtag #ACULoveStory, and help us celebrate the relationships begun and nurtured at ACU!
Here are some examples of what an #ACULoveStory looks like:

Lyle (’86) and Kari (Dorsey ’84) Leong

Since we first issued the invitation last week, we’ve received many terrific – and touching – responses. Among them:
If you’re not on social media, but want to share your #ACULoveStory with us, email firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll be on the lookout for the best photos and stories to share, and some will be published in a future issue of ACU Today magazine.
