In honor of Valentine’s Day, Augustana asked alumni to share their stories of how they met their spouse or partner while they were students at Augustana.

They were asked to tell how they met or fell in love in 150 words or less.

Judges have selected Dave Elliott '08 and Becky Hill '09 Elliott as the winners of the Augie Sweetheart Contest. They are being treated to dinner and a movie!

In all, the contest received 78 tales of the heart. Here are their stories, stories grouped by decades.
