Evelyn (Robinson) ’72 and Nathaniel “Nate” Thomas’72
We met on campus namely in Commons cafeteria. Nate and other student athletes would eat after basketball practice and I somehow was usually in the cafeteria at the same time. We became friends and I, someone who had absolutely no interest in basketball, started attending basketball games as Nate was captain of the team. It wasn’t long before we realized that it was a match made on campus as we dated, fell in love and determined to pursue our quest of a happily ever after life together. We both graduated in August ’72 and married in December ’72. Here we are, fifty years later realizing our “happily ever after” life. We have lived in Ohio, Kentucky, and California. We moved back to Texas in 2004. On our wedding anniversary day, (Dec.29) we went to San Marcos and had lunch at Gil’s Broiler. Afterwards, we went to the campus where we have so many beautiful memories. It’s amazing to see the growth, change and progress of the place that will forever be so dear to our hearts. We love Southwest Texas State University aka Texas State, San Marcos.
