Then and Now: Theophilus Tower
It was a rainy Sunday in the fall of 1974, and Marianne Winsky White ’76 was on her way to Mass, waiting for the elevator on the fifth floor of the Donald R. Theophilus Residence Hall.
When the doors parted, Marianne stepped into the elevator beside a graduate student riding down from the 10th floor. To this day, she doesn’t know what made her do it, but she struck up a conversation with George White '76.
Turns out, George was headed to Mass as well. Marianne offered to give him a ride in her 1960 Chevy Impala, and the rest is history.
“We talked all the way through Mass.” Marianne said. “I could not tell you what the sermon was about. I could tell you that Richard Wemhoff was the priest, as he was the same priest that married us on Aug. 13, 1977.”
“I tell people I met my husband in an elevator –and that we had our ups and downs – but overall it was a great marriage.”

Vandal Creation One of Mankind's
On the western rim of the Grand Canyon, 4,000 feet above the Colorado River and twice the altitude of the world’s largest skyscraper, hangs the Grand Canyon Skywalk.
Engineered and tested by teams of University of Idaho Vandals, the plexiglass structure jutting 70 feet from the canyon’s rim has garnered lots of attention since its unveiling in 2007.
It was recently placed on CNN's list of 25 of Mankind's Greatest Engineering Achievements.
