It’s Valentine’s Day, a holiday which brings out creative expressions of love and kindness (while also eliciting eye rolls from many, myself included). But this year, a couple of stories from campuses across the country caught my eye and maybe melted my heart a bit.
First, Donal O’Shea, president of New College of Florida, has spent the past several weeks signing valentines to his 800 students, 100 faculty, and 150 staff. Read more about his effort in Inside Higher Ed, and follow the #NewColhearts hashtag on Twitter to learn why members of the New College community love their school.
In Utah, members of Brigham Young University‘s male a cappella group Vocal Point surprised women across campus with songs and flowers. The resulting film will definitely make you crack a smile.
Of course, for my colleague Kyle and me, today isn’t Valentine’s Day. No, no, it’s something MUCH more important…
Happy House of Cards Season 2 Release Day, y’all!
