Eric Klein '14 & Hannah Boelman '14

Featured photo for Eric Klein We met in 2012 as sophomores at our favorite place, CLU. We happened to live across the hall in Afton when our rooms were acquainted after one of Hannah’s roommates needed a laundry card. From that night on our two rooms became inseparable. Eric KNEW he wanted to get to know "the girl with the onion top and ugg boots". Before this exact day neither of us had ever seen each other on campus, which is hard to fathom since CLU is so small. We even had mutual friends!! A few months later on May 4th, 2012 Eric asked Hannah to be his girlfriend at Zuma Beach in Malibu. Since that moment on, our relationship has stretched across multiple countries, grad school programs, and three cities. Over five years later at that same spot at Zuma Beach, surrounded by their families, Eric proposed to Hannah and they decided on forever. We got married a year later on July 28th, 2018 with over 30 CLU alumni in attendance! CLU will forever be the place that began our love story and we visit at least once a year to reflect on our beginning and how blessed we are it brought us together!
