USIU-Africa celebrates Valentines week in style!
By Winnie Nyakio
USIU-Africa kicked off Valentine’s week in style, with the Valentine’s Committee organizing several activities to spread some love to the University community. Some of the activities included the blind date session where two students were blindfolded to get to know each other. The aim of this game was to have students get to know each other using their hearts and letting the chemistry flow. Some of the students who tried the game exchanged numbers after a great conversation, others enjoyed it especially the shyer ones and for some it was hard to start a conversation with someone you had never seen before.
Students also had a chance to purchase gifts for themselves and their loved ones from vendors who had been specially invited to showcase their wares during the week, including several businesses owned by students, like Remy’s vegan delight who sold cookies and Valentine’s gift packs targeting vegans and Wence who sold flowers. There was also a photo booth where you could take photos, which people were encouraged to share on their platforms using the hashtags #redefininglove, #loveisaworkofheart and #USIUvalentine2020.
Let the spirit of love carry you through the rest of the year. Happy Valentine’s Day!
