There is always an appealing array of delights that are available across campus on Valentine's Day for students to participate in. Students can support their friends' organizations, do fun crafts with their loved ones or share a special treat, both on campus and right here in Macon!
While some are sit-down events, like QuadWorks' "Love is Blind," many are drop-in craft or goodie workshops that students can visit to pick up a cute personal gift or have a special moment in their celebration. Many Macon restaurants are also looking to spread the love with special date night deals and events! Here are some of the hottest events happening for you to take your beaux or bestie to:
