Foreign language leads to love for Baylor couple
French is often referred to as “the language of love,” but for Baylor graduates Philipp Rossbach and Kimberly Loyd, it was a German class at Baylor that sparked their romance.
As students, Philipp (BBA ’05, MAc ’05) and Kimberly (BS ’06) met in the German lounge on the second floor of Old Main in September 2002. Kimberly was taking German classes and needed a tutor; Philipp, a native speaker, fit the bill.
Fast forward to September 2009… During a campus visit, the couple stopped by that same room where their relationship began seven years earlier; a few minutes later, Philipp proposed to Kimberly just outside Old Main. Happily, she said yes! The couple, now living in Dallas, will be married next July.
Sic ’em, Philipp and Kimberly!
