Jordan Kilty ’12 and John Wall ’13

I knew Jordan and I were going to be best friends before I had even met her. She was studying abroad in Grenoble, France during her junior year and had been keeping in touch with a mutual St. Mike’s friend of ours via email – so I got to hear all of the entertaining stories […]

Heidi & Eric Grantz ‘95

Our first introductions came by way of my social meddling (yet very much adored) mother while in line at pre-orientation. Eric was in front of us in line when my mother tapped on his shoulder and said, “you’re a psychology major…my daughter is a psychology major!” This was nothing short of embarrassing and although we […]

Michael ’75 & Jane (Trinity ’75) Foley

Michael Foley (SMC ’75) and Jane McDowell (Trinity ‘75) met on a cold, blustery Sunday afternoon in late January of 1972 on the hill by the Mary Fletcher unit of the UVM Medical Center on Colchester Avenue. I was with a group of friends from Trinity, and Michael was with some friends from St. Mikes […]

Riley Stefano ‘16 & Logan David ‘16

I didn’t meet my best friend at St. Mike’s until senior year. I knew who he was—it’s such a small school, pretty much everyone knows everyone. We had played pickup basketball together freshman year, sat opposite each other in a class as sophomores, and even had brief encounters on weeknights out in the 3’s, but […]

Evan & Maddie Sivo ’08

Evan and I lived around the corner from each other for four years at St. Mike’s, but did not meet until after graduation. We were both living in Burlington after college and a mutual St. Mike’s friend introduced us. The rest is history! We were married in 2013, and still live in Burlington with our […]

Keith ’66 & Susan Maloney

Happy Valentine’s Day! I met my wife Susan in February 1965 shortly after Valentine’s Day while I was attending St. Mike’s and Susan Mary Capone (note her SMC initials) was attending Trinity College. How did we meet? Susan (with a girlfriend) were hitchhiking to “The Mill” in Winooski (women could do that sort of thing […]

Molly & John Herman ’08

Our love story began during Freshman year in Alliot (if you ask him) and during our Sophomore year in Alumni Hall (if you ask her). He will tell you that he knew he loved her the second he saw her, she will tell you that it took a little longer than that – but no […]

Reconnecting after 37 Years

I was a journalism major at St. Mike’s between 1976-1980. At a classmate’s request, I joined Air Force ROTC and drill team together as a freshman. As a result, I met a student named Matt Hedger ‘78, who was a junior.

Loving Friendships

I attended St. Mike’s between 1971 and 1975. While there I fell in love with a number of people, Dr. John Hanigan for his passion for philosophy and playing jazz piano; Dr. Paul LeClair for his love of music, especially Duke Ellington; Joanne and Don Rather for their penchant for theater; Dr. Edward Fokey for […]

Jacki Murphy ’74 & Zaf Bludevich

Zaf Bludevich came to work at St. Mike’s in the fall of 1975 as the College’s first full-time athletic trainer. I was attending UVM’s M.Ed. program in student personnel services in higher education and working as a graduate resident assistant in the halls at SMC. The SMC staff was small and there were few young […]

Study Group

Although I did not meet my wife at St. Mike’s, I did meet some of my best friends there. I have a few good friends still in the area, and some not. I was speaking with a good friend the other day, and he reminded me of our accounting study group, where we did not always […]
