Love is in the air at St. Joseph’s College. Since the Brooklyn Campus went coeducational in 1970, dozens of alumni have found their sweethearts in SJC’s classrooms, libraries and extracurricular organizations. In honor of Valentine’s Day, SJCNY is happy to salute some of the many alumni who came to St. Joseph’s as individuals and left with a love to last a lifetime. The 61 married or engaged couples below are only a small sample — here’s to many more in the years ahead.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
