Alumni couples share a very special bond with each other: Panther Pride. Both partners being graduates of Chapman University has its perks – you just know what your partner is talking about when referring to a place on campus, a piece of history or tradition, or that professor who made a major impact. You both have a deep understanding of the Chapman culture. College is an unforgettable experience that creates lifelong friendships and for some, a spouse! Whether you met freshman year or many years after graduation, you are still Chapman Sweethearts. Love must be in the air at our alma mater: there are more than 700 Sweetheart couples!

A Chapman Sweetheart is defined as any graduate married to another Chapman graduate. Timing is everything and that is why we don’t discriminate.
- You may have met in grade school and went to college together like Mary (Woods) Wahl ’05 and Daniel Wahl (MBA ’12) or Mariajose (Cienfuegos) Quaranta '12 and Severin Quaranta '13.
- You may have met during orientation or at your on campus job like Jennifer (Heide) Hall '03 and Ryan Hall '02 or like John Alexander '70 and Lynda (Porter) Alexander '71.
- You may have met in your professional career or with some friends after Chapman like Stephen Ummel '85 and Kathleen (Newton) Ummel '84 or Pat (Wood) Elliott '60 (M.A.'74) and Tom Elliott '60.
- You may have even met at Chapman, lost touch, ran into each other and fell in love like Jeff '98 and Ami (Custodia) Garvin '98 (M.A. '08) or Emilie (Danielson) Britton ’64 and Terry Britton '64.
