Featured Family Connection

PrOUd Parents continue to stay involved on campus as next generation carries on the Oakland tradition

Josef (CAS ’90, ’97) and Julie (CAS ’90) Bastian, who celebrate 25 years of marriage next year, met in a class in South Foundation Hall in 1989. Josef remembers remarking to a friend about Julie, “You know, that’s the kind of girl you marry. She’s in my class and she really seems to have her act together.”

Fast forward to 2015 and Josef and Julie are proud parents of daughter Elizabeth, and sons Christian, a senior in the College of Arts and Sciences, engineering freshman John-Paul and pre-freshman Pete who will continue the OU legacy their parents started.
