'UMass Lowell will forever be in our hearts as the place we met and fell in love'

Brian and Elizabeth (Plantz) Nugent, UMass Lowell ‘09

"Brian and I met in Donahue Hall through a mutual friend and classmate, Bruce. We had only two months left before graduation and knew we had something special. We spent as much time together as possible that spring.

Eventually our love grew even after graduation. We got married in 2014, and Bruce officiated our wedding. In the summer of 2016, we welcomed our first child. We have been back a few times to visit and can't wait to bring our son!

UMass Lowell will forever be in our hearts as the place we met and fell in love. We beam with joy when we tell friends and family we met in college. Eight years later, we could not be more thankful for the amazing experience we both had at school and hope that one day our son enjoys the same experience. College changes your life in more ways than you think."
