‘We became friends ... and then best friends ... and then we fell in love…’

Steve and Kelley (Weeks) Hurley, UMass Amherst ‘89

"We met the first day of our freshman year. We became friends ... and then best friends ... and then we fell in love. But the process took a while — seven years before we became a couple, and 10 before we married.

We've been back to UMass often, and last September our oldest child became a freshman at the UMass-Amherst Commonwealth Honors College. Who knows ... maybe he's following in our footsteps in more ways than one — maybe he's already met the person he'll marry someday down the road!"
