Blairstown has special meaning to our family. In 1985 the graduate students' main social event was a weekend at Blairstown. However, the timing was bad (when most grad students were engaged either with teaching or studying for generals), so only six people could make it. Two of those were me and my future husband. Though we were acquainted from classes (we were both in the math department), Blairstown was definitely how we got to know each other. A year later we married, and two years later our son Andrew '09 was born at the Princeton Medical Center! Our two daughters also were Princeton students.
