Courtney DeNicola Nowak ’00 and Best Friends

The November 2010 wedding ceremony of Courtney DeNicola Nowak ’00 included longtime friends Merideth McIntyre-Richards ’00 and Monica DelRosso ’00.

“Merideth, Monica, and I met our freshman year in Lawrence Hall (which I was told no longer stands!),” Courtney said. “I can’t remember how we met (I do remember sitting next to Monica at dorm orientation), but we were inseparable during those four years, and have been best friends ever since! No doubt our lives have changed a lot since graduation . . . we’ve been throw some tough times, but our bond is just as strong as it was on graduation day, when we all said goodbye and moved to different places to start our lives as young professionals.

“Merideth and Monica were in my wedding (which took place in New York City last fall), and it meant so much that they were part of my big day.”

Courtney, a senior media associate for Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, lives in Staten Island with her husband, Christopher.
