Lori (McDonald) DeLise ’84 & Antonio DeLise ’83

Lori (McDonald) DeLise ’84 & Antonio DeLise ’83

Toward the end of my freshman year, I was in the cafeteria and placed my tray down while I turned to fill a glass with milk. When I turned back to my tray, a bite had been taken out of my hamburger. Looking around, I didn't see anyone claiming responsibility, so I sat at a table with my friends and told them what had happened. As I glanced up, two tables over my future husband was grinning and waving at me, taking credit for the bite from my hamburger. That is how I met Tony DeLise (class of 1983). We dated off and on throughout college, and in 1986 he treated me to dinner at the now closed Pancho Villa's in Westport. On the way home he suggested we revisit our old stomping grounds at Fairfield University. Since this was before the days of keycards, we were able to access Loyola, where we had both lived, and when we came to the second floor landing where we shared our first kiss, he asked me to marry him - and reminded me that when we shared our first kiss, I corrected his grammar, since he asked "Can I kiss you?" and I told him the proper usage would be "May I?" We married in 1987, and have very fond memories of our time at Fairfield and the friendships we formed there.
