Marcie (Welch) ’00 and Alan Waligura ’98
Alan and I met in the Fall of 1997 at TXST (although it will always be SWT to us:) after my roommates and I moved into the apartment building next door. His group of friends became our group of friends, and we’ve been together ever since. Alan worked driving the buses for the university as well as renting tubes at Jerry’s on the Guadalupe. We have countless memories floating the river as well as enjoying all the great things the hill country has to offer. Since we built our life north of Dallas after graduating, we so miss things like Wurstfest, Green Parrot, Paper Bear, Dance Across, Five Mile Dam, tailgating, karaoke at Cheers, and trips to Sixth Street and Gruene. We feel like we left a small piece of our hearts in SMTX so many years ago, and this Fall we dropped off a huge piece of our hearts there when our daughter started as a freshman at TXST. We’ve now been married over 22 years, and some of our closest friends are still Bobcats. Forever grateful for our amazing college experience and that it brought us together!
