Love stories from DCTC

While students come to Dakota County Technical College to gain education for employment, we know they find friendships and sometimes even love here as well. In honor of Valentine’s Day and all things love, here are a few stories of Blue Knights who found romance on campus.

Alissa and Cole


Cole and Alissa met in the spring semester of 2015 in an Exercise and Sports Science class they had together at DCTC. Cole was unsure if Alissa was taken or single, and it took a classmate and friend of his whom talked to her too in the class, to tell him to pursue getting to know her. One day in class, a classmate told Alissa that Cole had a crush on her. She thought the classmate was joking around but it turned out to be the truth. After that, it took a couple months of hanging out and getting to know each other before they started dating.


Jeremie and Anne 


Jeremie and Anne met in the exercise science program led by Sara Woodward, they shared the majority of their classes together. The couple graduated from DCTC in 2009 and continued on to Concordia St. Paul’s kinesiology cohort together as well. The couple married October 26th 2013 and their son, Colton was born August 2014.
