MIIS Match: Who knew networking could be so sweet?
February 14, 2013
Whether you were study buddies or bumped into each other on the recreational trail, your hearts made a connection through the Monterey Institute!
“I met Anne the first day I stepped onto campus the summer of 1995. It was love at first sight! We have been married fifteen years and have two kids. I almost went to SIT in Vermont and Anne almost went to the University of Minnesota. So it is oh so true that if MIIS wasn’t around, we would not have been matched up. Thank you, MIIS!”
– Pete Rogan (MATESOL ’97)
