Wedding Proposal Ideas in Temple University

How We Met

Some people wonder if love at first sight is real, and I can most certainly answer – yes, it’s real! Bijan and I met while we were students at Temple University’s Fox School of Business. I remember the first time we ever saw each other. I was a student worker at Fox’s Career Center (CSPD) and Bijan, a student, came into use the stapler and the rest is history! We would go to Starbucks to get coffee and meet at our “meeting spot” – 7th floor of the Fox School of Business which overlooked the Philadelphia Skyline. We graduated in 2014 and both work in Philadelphia. When we think of Temple, it brings us back to our college love days – our #TempleMade love story.

How He Asked

I was asked to come to campus to record a record a testimonial video for the Career Center at the Fox School of Business on Friday, October 20th. Of course, I said yes and didn’t think twice. I arrive to campus, with the videographer and my sister (she currently works at CSPD too!). I start the first take of my testimonial video, and suddenly felt someone touch my back. I turn around and there, on one knee was Bijan with a Starbucks cup that read “Will you Marry Me” and the ring wrapped around the straw. Everything that brought our love together as college students (stapler not pictured) was still there on our special day. Our forever #TempleMade Love story.
