It’s that time of year again—as Feb. 14 approaches, we’re excited to share our seventh annual “GW Alumni Valentines” feature!
Each of these couples has one thing in common: GW. Find out how they met, how their lives have changed and why they still love being Colonials!
Although they were both SEAS students, it took a good friend—and a Valentine’s Day twist—to make these two (now a family of four!) a couple.
Matt Alderman, ’08 & Mario Sansalone, ’08
They first had to move to Seattle in order to hit it off, but was a mutual GW connection that brought these ’08 grads together.
Alyscia Eisen, ’08, ’10 & Paul Schuh, ’08
Teammates on the cheer team before becoming a couple, this dynamic duo is still going strong.
Rebecca Gibson-Wilkins, ’03 & Luke Wilkins, ’03
Both from small towns, Rebecca and Luke were drawn to GW for its charismatic urban campus. Six moves and 10+ years later, this couple is excited about their latest adventure.
Luke Olsen, ’04 & Philippa (Castiaux) Olsen, ’04
Lab partners before they were a couple, Luke and Philippa have been together since their sophomore year—and now cheer on the Colonials with their daughter, Charlotte.
Casey Pierzchala, ’08, ’11 & Alex Winn, ’08, ’11
Dubbed strong candidates for “the title of Mr. and Mrs. Colonial for the Class of 2008” by a friend, Alex and Casey met during their freshman year and have been together ever since.
Gillian (Brody) Zachary, ’09 & Noah Zachary, ’09
Gillian and Noah both hail from GW Legacy families—so it’s no wonder that these newlyweds found each other at GW.
