Homecoming proposal

Christi and Eric Woodworth met while preparing for Oklahoma State's Homecoming celebration.

Eric and Christi Woodworth, met at Homecoming in 1994. 

During the 1994 Homecoming, Eric Woodworth, a OSU alumnus, was a member of Delta Chi and was paired with Delta Zeta for Homecoming. During a pomping session, Christi, a Florida State alumnae, was a leadership consultant in the Delta Zeta sorority who was handing Eric the pomping tissue. 

“We just started up a conversation,” Eric said. “I obviously thought she was attractive and I was very thankful I got paired with her, and she was handing me the pomps.” 

They got to know each other during the pomping, enjoying each other’s company. He then asked her to go to Eskimo Joe’s. 

Their relationship grew from this first interaction, and for over 25 years they have been together ever since.
