Although Stacy Kelly, Artsci’93, and Mark Julien, Ed’08, were not #Queensu students together, they first met on campus. Mark, then working at OCAD, was at Queen’s in August 2001 attending a conference hosted by Queen's Admissions, where Stacy was then working. Mark walked into the admissions office to ask for directions and the first person he met was Stacy. “Mark spent the rest of conference chasing after me and I spent the rest of the conference running away. But Mark was persistent in a wonderful way,” says Stacy, who admits he was a little clueless and shy about Mark’s feelings initially. The conference ended with dinner and a dance in Ban Righ Hall – that’s when the two finally danced together and the sparks flew. Eight years later to the day of that first dance – Aug. 15, 2009 – the couple were back in Ban Righ Hall for their wedding reception. Queen’s played a big role in the wedding. They were married in Theological Hall, photos were taken outside Summerhill, the wedding party had many Queen’s alumni, and most out-of-town guests stayed in Leggett Hall. As Stacy likes to recall, "Mark was lost and looking for directions that day back in 2001. In many ways, so was I. I am so glad we found each other that day." Did you meet your partner at Queen’s?

#Queensu brings many couples together -- it’s common for students to meet their future husband or wife on campus.  For Julia Reid, Artsci’08, and James Reid, Artsci’04, the university brought them together after graduation. Julia had just moved to England in 2008 and attended a Queen’s London Alumni Branch trivia and met James. They did not go to Queen’s at the same time but were both from Toronto and both spent a year at the Bader International Study Centre. “I wasn’t looking for a husband at this Branch event but it turned out that way,” she says. They got together a few more times as friends before finally having their first date on Valentine’s Day. Five and a half years later, they were married in 2014 in London and now live in New York City, where Julia is the Queen’s NYC Branch president. Matchmaking is not one of her official NYC Branch president duties. Did you meet your partner at Queen’s? Tell us your #ValentinesDay love story in the comments below.
