Shark Love in Unexpected Places

You never know when love at first sight can happen. For Sharks, it is not uncommon to meet your future spouse on campus. Meet our "NSU Sweetsharks" who found each other while working and studying.

Alexandra Paroulek-Bergbauer (B.S. '09) & Michael Bergbauer (B.A. '08)

As told by Alexandra:

I first met Michael when I revived the video game/anime club during my 2nd year. When all the clubs had bulletin boards in the Parker building, I went with friends to decorate our board and later post about it on our Facebook page. Michael was the first one to comment on how awesome our board looked. His profile picture was of his favorite anime character, and I remember getting excited that someone liked our board and I wanted to meet him.



Efraim (B.S. '01 & M.B.A. '04) and Elizabeth Hernandez (B.S. '98)

As told by Elizabeth:

We worked together at the Mail Center where we developed a friendship.  Every Friday, a group of us would go to a Nova sponsored TGIF.  One particular time, Efraim asked if we can go together. During that very special night we developed an attraction for one another.

Our relationship was definitely a helpful solution.  We were working together and both of us were studying towards our undergraduate degree.
