Thanks to Margaret Rajic, CCAS BA ’16, and Matt Palmer, CCAS BA ’16, for sharing their story!
Matt and I met during our sophomore year at GW because we were both living in The Dakota. He was on the Men’s Rowing team, and we were introduced by our mutual friend and his teammate, Keenan Freyberg, ESIA BA ’16.
After hanging out every day for two weeks, I took Matt to a classical chamber music concert on the Vern (something I was really into, and that he pretended to enjoy for my sake). While waiting for the Vern Express shuttle on a swinging bench in front of the library I asked him “what our deal was.” Matt said, “You stole my thunder! I was going to ask you to be my girlfriend later tonight!” We’ve been together ever since!
Fast forward to almost four years later and we have lived in two cities post-graduation together – first New York City, and currently Chicago! We even have an adorable French Bulldog named Evie.
