|Leah's formal where this love story began.|
Seth Vensil's and Leah Taylor's stars collided in 2009 when Leah needed a date to her sorority formal. Mutual friends pinned Seth as the perfect match for Leah and sparks flew instantly. The couple capped off their perfect first date with a stroll around UC’s campus that landed them at McMicken Tower and their (then) favorite Greek hangout, Uncle Woody’s.
Two years later, their love story came full circle when Seth invited Leah back to McMicken Hall. He wanted her to kiss Mick and Mack for good luck before his medical boards the following day, but Leah turned around only to find Seth down on one knee.
As for planning their future together, Seth says, “As a medical student, my life after school is determined by what residency program I match into. I would like to stay in the Midwest and specifically Ohio. Really, I'm just excited that Leah is willing to pick up and go wherever I go. She has been my main support through the last couple of years and I can't wait to start our life together, wherever that may be.”

New Year's Eve together in Chicago.
Seth, a Biology and Chemistry student at the McMicken College of Arts & Sciences, loved his undergraduate experience so much that he continued on to study at the College of Medicine. Even with a challenging academic program, he served as president of his fraternity, Sigma Chi, and student trustee on UC's Board of Trustees. He stayed involved with 11 other organizations across campus, spanning Men of METRO and Sigma Sigma to ROAR and the Student Activities Board (SAB).
“My involvement in Greek Life and Student Government really cemented my love for UC and provided me with numerous opportunities. I will always feel indebted to UC for allowing me such a-once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and it is my lifelong mission to give back in any way that I can.”
