Marcus and Nicole WiegertWhether meeting the first day of Orientation weekend, at an athletic event or during a class project, many  students find love at Marian University, and credit their time on campus for helping them find their true and everlasting partner in life. Luck or fate, whatever it was, we’re glad Marian University is part of it. That’s why we’re featuring one of the many “how we met” stories for this week’s blog!

Marcus ‘08 and Nicole ‘08 (Brenner) Wiegert

“Nicole and I met on Marian’s campus during the fall of our sophomore year of college. At semester break of her freshman year, she transferred to Marian after attending Coker College in South Carolina where she was on a basketball scholarship. She commuted from her home in Mt. Calvary, so outside of classes she was not on campus very often. We met at the fraternity house and soon after saw each other at the Sadoff Gymnasium as our basketball practices were after one another. As our games in the 2005–06 season began, we started to talk more and hang out. Nicole and I have been together for almost 11 years, and have been married for 5 years.”

Nicole currently serves as a Population Health Nurse for Agnesian HealthCare. Marcus serves as head men’s and women’s tennis coach and assistant men’s basketball coach at Marian University.
