Their journey has been filled with challenges and surprises, but Griselda Conejo Lopez and Bladimir Ramos Alvarado will celebrate this weekend. She’s graduating with a master’s degree in computer science; he is receiving a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering.
Meanwhile, three years ago, Benjamin Marrero and Katily Ramirez met at a Chinese buffet in Savannah, Georgia. It was love at first sight — for one of them. They've since married and are receiving a bachelor's and master's degree, respectively, this weekend.
Being married, with children, during graduate school presents unique challenges, as well as special experiences.
