Dating a sophmore

Let’s be honest: dating in college is a lot more complicated than dating in high school.There are new rules, some of which are unspoken and not so obvious.Next fall, I’m planning on going to a local community college, but I won’t be too far away.I think my boyfriend has more interest in the military or a vocational career than college, but he’s very serious and mature for his age.

It hasn’t always been an easy road for the couples below, but these lovebirds have managed to go the distance.Gail Halpern and Michael Marcus met in a first-year chemistry class, began dating as sophomores, and got married two days after graduation.They went on to study physics and nuclear engineering (Gail) and electrical engineering (Mike), before launching careers that would have a big impact on technology policies in nuclear power, in Gail’s case, and wireless communications, in Mike’s.“We both gravitated toward the integration of technology into society—what to fund, how to regulate, how to balance different interests,” says Gail.“They’re not strictly engineering problems, but we both felt it was essential for engineers to be involved.” Mike joined the Air Force after graduation, which brought the pair to Washington, D. Both were drawn to tech-oriented analytical work at think tanks and research agencies.In 1979, Mike met ­Stephen Lukasik, Sc D ’56, the first chief scientist of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).
