Connecting the brain and the heart
Published on 02 April, 2012
Two people met, became friends and found love. This is the story of Michael Bradley and Debra Crosswell.
The couple commenced their studies at CQUniversity, one in 2009 and the other in 2010. One chose Bachelor of Arts (Sociology) while the other chose the Bachelor of Learning Management.
As they studied their love grew, blossoming into a deep commitment and a desire to marry.
On February 19 this year, the couple celebrated their wedding in the beautiful gardens of CQUniversity Bundaberg.
Family, friends, CQUniversity staff and students were there in force to celebrate with the couple on their wedding day.
One of their lecturers, Cheri Yavu-Kama-Harathunian officiated at the sacred event, making it a CQUniversity Bundaberg first.
According to Cheri, university and study can be the impetus for romance and life-long commitment.
"Michael and Debbie's courses will end with the gaining of their degrees of choice. What happened to them along the way will be with them for the rest of their lives.
"We congratulate both students for being the first to celebrate such an important event in their lives on the campus where they are still learning to 'Be Who They Want To Be', together."
