Bridgewater Va, – Bridgewater College faculty and students are showing love on campus with many different events and treats. During the week of Valentine’s Day, different clubs and organizations have provided candy, flowers and cards.

The class of 2023 sold chocolate candy grams for $2 in the KCC lobby on Feb. 10 through Feb. 13. Students were encouraged to buy a friend or sweetheart candy and write them a note. Candy grams are to be delivered to the student’s mail box on the day itself, Feb. 14.

The KCC provided chocolate treats leading up to Valentine’s Day in an initiative called “14 days of chocolate.” On Friday, the KCC will have a chocolate fondue bar for all to enjoy. 

Also on Feb. 14, Eagle Productions is presenting “Treat Yo Self” in the KCC main dining hall from 8:00 -10:00 p.m. Students can enjoy some special food while watching a few episodes of “Parks & Recreation.”
