Phil proposed to Maggie under Beaumont Tower the morning of the Michigan State vs. Michigan game in October. I was a bit giddy and nervous as I waited and watched for them from a bench near the tower. I kept my camera in my bag at the ready—I didn’t want to be too obvious when Maggie walked by. When the moment came, they walked right by me and over to the circle in the shadow of the tower, where Phil offered a kiss in the tradition of the tower (it’s said that a Spartan is destined to marry his/her sweetheart if they kiss under the shadow of the Beaumont Tower). She said yes (yay!), and I headed over to introduce myself, congratulate them and take a few photos on campus before they headed out to enjoy some tailgating. Well done, Phil. Very well done.
