Love at Mason for Accounting Alum

Written by Administrator on .

Twenty-six years together and three children later, Scott and Ellen Weeren have film and media studies director Cynthia Fuchs’s film class to thank for their love story.

Both on different degree paths, Scott Weeren, BS Accounting ’90, and Ellen Graham Weeren, BA English ’90​ found themselves in the same class in 1989. Not excited about the syllabus, Ellen considered dropped the class until her eyes fell on Scott.

“[He was] sitting in the back row with his hat askew. Instead of dropping the class, we started watching the movies together and got engaged that May,” says Ellen. ​

“We are a Mason family through and through.”​​



An article titled “A Campus Full of Love” was featured on Mason’s website on February 14, 2019 that includes the Weeren’s story and other Mason love stories.
