Jon Saltzman ’17 & Becca Mayeda ’17

Becca and Jon met during Dana Hall freshman orientation in fall 2013. They initially bonded over long study dates in McCabe, and by freshman spring, their study dates had migrated to Kohlberg classrooms. Swarthmore helped them grow as individuals and as a couple, and by the time they were seniors they had a double together in Wharton. After graduating they moved to Philly, where Jon started a soccer team named after Cunningham Field, and Becca started medical school. At their wedding in Kauai, over 20% of the guests were Swatties (including Jon’s mom, Audrey Newell ’75). They are currently living their happily ever after in the Philly area.
