Penny Price '90 and her high school sweetheart, Brad, kept their love alive while attending different colleges thanks to Penny's involvement on the “new” Internet at Bryn Mawr.
"I met my husband in high school. He went to Lehigh University, but we communicated every day in college on Bitnet (“Because It’s Time Network”), a university computer network that became part of the early Internet.
Freshman year, I found my way into working at the Computer Center, which was located in the basement of the newly built Guild Hall, and stayed there all four years of college.
Working at the Computer Center not only gave me, a history major, specific skills that helped me land my first job, but it also gave me daily access to the Vax terminals where I could email my boyfriend and keep our love alive!"
(Editor’s note: Penny and Brad are married and have two children.)
