It’s Valentine’s Day, and there have been some great examples of institutions showing their love for students, alumni and their broader communities this Feb. 14. Here are just a few:
- The University of Kansas Endowment Fund has a Flickr set of students showing their love for the university.
- The University of Connecticut, Michigan State University, MIT
and Brown University are among those offering branded valentines for people to share.
- Dickinson College is asking students and alumni to share their Dickinsonian love stories on Facebook.
- A few schools are experimenting with Vine, including the University of California-Irvine and Penn Law School.
- Prince George’s Community College is having a Valentine’s Day flash mob in honor of the One Billion Rising movement:
- An a cappella group at Hamilton College is selling Buffergrams, in which they will sing a valentine to a person of your choice. A group of musicians at Marshall University is holding a similar fundraiser, Tuba Valentines.
- So many couples meet at Miami University Ohio that the institution has a name for it: Miami Mergers. The institution is having a haiku contest (prize: trip for two to Alumni Weekend), the winners of which will be featured on coasters.
- And of course, there are some great photo valentines, such as those shared by Villanova and Bucknell University.
