One of Landmark Colleges longest and most powerful traditions is hearing our graduates speak as they cross our stage.
Over the years, we have heard of an overwhelming number of alumni finding their “partner for life” because of Landmark College. But Doug and Kristin Killin could officially be our first Landmark College Alumni Couple.
Doug and Kristin met when the doors first opened at Landmark College in 1985. At their graduation, both received the President’s Award, recognizing them as students who had best exemplified the College’s guiding principles. Together they left Landmark in June 1987 and attended Seattle Pacific University. Kristin earned a BA in History from Seattle Pacific but Doug returned to Landmark as a Resident Dean and earned a degree at Keene State College. Doug later earned a Master’s in Education at the University of San Francisco. They married October 30, 1993. Today, they live happily in San Jose, California, with their three children.

In the fall of 2012, Andrea began in her role as an assistant middle school teacher at the Windward School in White Plains, New York, an independent, co-ed day school focused exclusively on helping students in grades 1-9 with language-based learning disabilities.

1) How did you learn about the course?
In early spring 2013, after connecting with the Alumni Relations Office, I was excited to learn about the new opportunity for alumni to continue the Landmark experience through study abroad. I was ecstatic! I had meant to take advantage of the opportunity while I was at Landmark, but due to a self-inflicted heavy course load, I was never able to fit it in. It saddened me because I had hoped to go on study aboard before I left but just figured I’d wait until my next college to travel abroad.” After going over various options, I settled on the trip to the U.K. taught by Professors Lucy Stamp and Dan Miller, with the course focus being Travel Writing.
We welcome your suggestions about ways our office can assist you.
