Future bride surprises Jayhawk fiancé | Brandon & Brittany

Posted on Feb 13, 2015 in Alumni News and News

Whether it was in the midst of Budig 320 or over a crunchy chicken cheddar wrap at the Market, hanging out on Wescoe Beach or at a network watch party years later, countless Jayhawks owe their marriage to their time on the Hill. We’re sharing some of our favorite stories this week in anticipation of Valentine’s Day on Saturday, Feb. 14.

Brandon Tobias and Brittany Killian | photo by Leslie O Photo | www.kualumni.orgBrandon Tobias didn’t meet his fiancée, Brittany Killian, at KU–but in true Proud Member fashion, he’s converting her to a Jayhawk.

The couple met when Brandon, a’05, was deployed to Afghanistan as a civilian employee for the Army and his unit partnered with Brittany’s office in Philadelphia on a project. The pair worked together over the phone and finally met in-person—and hit it off— in New York City while he was on leave.

Nine months later, his tour ended and his budding romance took off.

The lovebirds made a special trip to Lawrence to take their engagement pictures, and Brittany surprised Brandon with a shirt she made online: the front says “I love my Jayhawk,” and the back features their wedding date.

We suspect plenty of fellow Jayhawks will fall in love with Brittany’s sweet surprise and create one of their own.

Congratulations to both of you, and welcome to the flock, Brittany.
