Featured photo for Andrea McGinnis

I was living in South 915 and Matt was living in South 914 in 1994. Living directly across the hall from each other, my roommates and I quickly became friends with Matt and his roommates and hung out together on a regular basis. Matt asked me to the Homecoming Dance and we soon became a couple. We dated for the remainder of our time at Cal Lutheran. Matt proposed in July 1996 at Shaver Lake. We have continued to vacation at Shaver Lake each year since. We were married in the Samuelson Chapel which is named after Matt’s grandfather, Bob Samuelson in August 1997. We live in Camarillo with our two sons. Our oldest is carrying on the family tradition and is currently a sophomore at Cal Lu!
