“Here, students can come, gather with friends and get some nice goodies to give to those they love without having to worry about buying anything expensive and making the holiday seem like a chore,” Huydic said. “This makes everything more exciting.” 

This event, which takes place every year, was on Monday evening, Feb. 12. It was an effort to get students together during the semester and celebrate Valentine’s Day together. Huydic was pleased with the outcome and the enthusiasm surrounding the event. 

“I am just happy so many people came, had a great time and our organization’s efforts paid off,” Huydic said. 

Business major Rayna Singleton, a sophomore, was also a coordinator for the event, and looks forward to this event every year. She feels this event benefits students by encouraging healthy relationships with others and yourself. 

“We just like getting students together and making the college experience more fun,” Singleton said. “It’s a great way to take stress away from classes and everything, and just come, get some free items to give to their loved ones and gather with friends.” 

Psychology major Alyssa Murphy, a freshman, attended Monday’s event, looking for ways to get involved in campus life and celebrate the holiday. 

“I saw this event on the SCSU Instagram and thought it would be a great way to do some Valentine’s activities with my friends.” Murphy said. “I would encourage anyone to attend as many events as possible.” 

Elementary education major Masa Daker, learned about the event from the university Instagram and thought it would be a great way to meet new people.  

“I wanted to be able to give my valentine a gift-basket, and it’s so exciting to be able to get a bunch of goodies for free,” Daker said. “I would encourage anyone who is looking to get more involved in campus life to not be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and go to any event you can. It’s great to be part of a community.”
