Earlier yesterday, I had the wonderful opportunity to attend The Art & Science (A&S) of Love Valentine’s Day celebration inside the Roto. This colorful event was organized by the Faculty & Staff of A&S and it ran from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm. Among the people around were Dean Bradford, lecturers from the different departments of A&S and other University staff members.
The decorations were extremely beautiful and the setup was wonderful. Upon arriving, I proceeded to look at the art displays on the wall; it was an exhibition of students from different majors within A&S and I thought it was very impressive.
I made it a point to grab a quick bite before being drawn in by the ladies (pictured here) who convinced me to write something nice for the immigrants on campus. My message read “Welcome to America,” the same words my parents said to me when I first arrived on the shores of this great nation a couple of years ago. It was a sobering experience!
There was also a table where students could write anonymous messages to their crushes on campus. I must say, I am always impressed by whoever does the decorations for events on campus. Before I left, students had started pouring in to take part of what I think was a sort of descriptive “write about you personality” activity. Some were just merely thankful to be in good company while some were there to appreciate the activity itself.
