Valentine’s Day Activities for Students

By: Abigail Vaughn

Valentine’s Day offers students at Vol State many activities from a campus event, to activities around Gallatin or listening to our Valentine’s Day playlist made by students. 

Vol State Community College is offering one campus event this year for Valentine’s Day. It will start on February 14 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.  

“Come and visit different stations related to self-care: create a daily routine, write a future letter to yourself, and create positive affirmations,” the Vol State website said. They will be providing free food and “Stuff-a-Plush,” while supplies last. 

This event will be at the Wood Campus Center inside the dining room. For any questions contact Tabitha Sherrell.  

If you’re looking for a restaurant to go to, Gregory Grimsley has a tradition of joining two other couples for Valentine’s at Stoney River on the West End. “I always order a bowl of French Onion soup, the Coffee Crusted Filet, loaded Baked Potato, and Carrot Cake. I will hasten to add that half of it usually goes in a ‘to go’ box to bring home.” 

If you’re looking for a quick place to grab a meal, Chick-fil-A is offering heart-shaped trays. From Jan. 29 through Feb. 24, you can choose between 30-count Chick-fil-A nuggets, 10-count Chick-n-Minis (during breakfast hours), 12 chocolate fudge brownie halves, or six chocolate chunk cookies. 

As well as sharing Valentine’s Day traditions and activities students at Vol State shared their favorite love songs to create a Valentine’s Day playlist. 

“A good song would be ‘Constellations’ by Jade Lemac! The acoustic version specifically,” Aspen Ricks said. 

“Here are some songs, ‘Forever and Ever Amen’ by Randy Travis, ‘Bless the Broken Road’ by the Rascal Flatts, ‘I Run to You’ by Lady A, ‘Dreaming of You’ by Selena Quintanilla, ‘Adorn and Sure Thing’ by Miguel,” Emily Castaneda said. 

“The song that comes to mind is ‘In My Life’ by the Beatles. It appeared on their album Rubber Soul in 1965. It has a special meaning as I had it played for my wife at our wedding,” Grimsley said.
