It's often said that one finds love when one least expects it. For two Rhodes University graduates, love must have snuck in as they racked their brains during their studies.
Thomas Kalimbo and Vistorina Haipa graduated together as a couple — but that's only half of the story. They got engaged immediately afterwards while still clad in their gowns.
The university shared a photo of the beautiful moment on its Facebook page on 5 April. Thomas is seen on his knees, proposing as Vistorina says yes.
The image warmed the hearts of thousands of people. It garnered over 80 comments, 1,200 likes, and 207 shares.
Commenters congratulated the Masters graduates on their engagement — and graduation too. See some of their reactions below.
