Near and Dear

Cupid’s arrow whizzed through the heart of campus during Valentine’s Day week, bringing a warm supply of affection and attention to a variety of activities: a girls’ night out in the Thompson Professional Development Center, a holiday-themed buffet in Capitol Eatery and a women’s basketball game in Bardo Gym that spotlighted the most commonly diagnosed cancer among American women. The “Galentine’s Day” slumber party on Tuesday included delicious snacks from Le Jeune Chef Restaurant, crafts, games, prizes and priceless camaraderie. “It seemed like everyone had a lot of fun and enjoyed having a space just for women to hang out,” said Community Peer Educator Nina L. Walk, who co-organized the PDC event with Resident Assistant Bryonna A. Aldubayan. “It was so great seeing these two students work so hard to create a really fun event that focused on positive female friendship,” added Mallory L. Weymer, coordinator of student health and wellness education/suicide prevention specialist. From 4-8 p.m. Wednesday, Dining Services presented a Valentine’s Buffet that featured such mouth-watering treats as grilled steak, pasta with vodka sauce and salted caramel mousse. Valentine’s Day wrapped up with a “Pink Out” game for breast cancer awareness, with colorfully clad hoops fans sharing their admiration and advocacy.
