University of Michigan alum Lehman Robinson applied to his now alma mater on a whim. As a first-generation college student coming from a low-income household, he assumed the school would be out of his family’s means — until he received his financial aid notice. Six years later, he said he’s still grateful for his aid package, which covered much of his tuition. Still, he had no idea what was in store when he applied.

Mina Jo Rosenbloom Linver and Dr. Michael Linver are celebrating their 50th anniversary after meeting on an online dating service.

Fifty years ago this year on the University of Michigan’s campus, then-student Michael Linver swiped right on his future wife — or something like that.

Linver, who graduated in 1966, and wife Mina Jo Rosenbloom, who graduated a year later, have been dubbed the “Digital Adam and Eve”: perhaps the first couple to meet, and fall in love, through an online dating service. Decades before, eHarmony, or even Tinder, Linver and Rosenbloom took a chance on a computer.
