BSU Celebrates Valentine’s Day
Over the past week, different campus organizations hosted events to celebrate the lovely holiday of Valentine’s Day. These celebrations included Best Buddies and Bears Who Care’s Pal-entines Day event, Residence Hall Association’s (RHA) Valentine’s Day Trivia, and the Environmental Action Team’s I Love the Planet Tabling Event.
On Friday February 10th, 2023, in Rondileau Student Union’s council chambers,
Best Buddies and Bears Who Cares partnered for an event where students can create “pal-entines” with friends. Best Who Care’s President, Emilie LaPointe (she/her) shared, “we think it’s important for there to be inclusive events on campus for people of all abilities and young adults in the community around Bridgewater State as well to come and hang out with college-aged peers and have fun. So we’re just basically making cards because a lot of our members love making arts and crafts, making this the perfect holiday to do that for.”
The Residence Hall Association hosted a Valentine’s Day-themed trivia night on Monday February 13, 2023 for students to attend. The 48-question trivia game featured questions such as “What city is known as the City of Love?” and “What type of trees does chocolate come from?”. The game was competitive, and teams constantly switched places on the leaderboard. The winners, Sam Hauser (’24), John Dinopoulos (’23) , Grayson Hardy (’23), and Michael Hood-Burgess (’24) won the first place of pink JBL speakers.
The Environmental Action Team (EAT), BSU’s local climate action group, was stationed in the ground floor lobby of Rondileau Student Union on Tuesday February 13th, 2023, with planet-themed Valentine’s Day items. Items included environment memes and roses made out of recycled newspapers. Those who stopped by their table were able to write a sticky a note stating what they love about our planet and/or the environment and paste it onto a poster board. Students Erin Smith (she/her) said she loves farming and Kira Markie (she/her) said she loves “farming, growing my garden, and nature overall”. EAT meets Tuesdays 5-6pm in Moakley 300.
