OVER its two decades, SCU has helped blossom careers, new trains of thought, and romance, it would seem.
It's the classic tale of love found in university lecture rooms: Annette and Adam Condon met each other and began dating through their respective teaching degrees at SCU in 2002.
Now, 12 years later, the pair are married with three children, and both work as primary teachers in the Lismore area.
Mr Condon said the two met when the now-Mrs Condon needed help getting settled in Lismore.
"I grew up in Inverell, and I knew a few people who had gone to uni in Lismore," Mrs Condon (nee Hunt) said.
"I was tossing up between Newcastle or Lismore and my friends said they knew people who would look after me and help me get settled in Lismore.
"They introduced me to Adam and his brother on my first day in Lismore."
The pair became close friends, but, as Mrs Condon said, it "took us a few years to get our act together".
The attraction was fairly instant though, they both said.
"I thought she was very attractive, and a very genuinely friendly person, always wanting to get involved, energetic," Mr Condon said.
"We both shared sport as a common interest," he said, in addition to their respective teaching degrees.
The pair married in 2010 and have welcomed into the world sons Riley, 6, and Henry, 3, and daughter Halley, 1.
It's not uncommon for people to find love at university, Mr Condon said.
"Quite a few of my friends met (their partners) at university," he said.
Mrs Condon agreed.
"I think it's just the stage of your life that you're entering into," she said.
