Evelyn Ibarra ’18 and Armando Pinales ’20

My first interaction with Armando was in 2017 at the Academic Research Service Center (ARSC) in Supple. He was a student worker who opened the door for me as I did not have access. I was about to start getting trained on equipment to use for undergraduate research. It was not until 2018 that we started getting to know each other as we both spent countless hours in the lab. We started dating and eventually got married in 2021.
