Valentine's Day Week Brings 7th Annual Love Liberally Event at VWC

02-09-2017

From “Shakespeare’s Love Sonnets” to “Sea Sex: Bizarre Reproductive Strategies in Marine Invertebrates,” Virginia Wesleyan will be feeling the love this Valentine’s Day Week for the College’s “Love Liberally” 7th Annual Celebration of Love in the Liberal Arts, February 13‐17. In this campus-wide event faculty are once again opening their doors for special lectures, workshops and presentations that explore the concept of love through their own disciplinary lens. These occasions present a great opportunity for students to get to know professors they have not had or subjects of interest to them without being enrolled in that particular course. The presentations are open to the entire campus community. New this year, students faculty and staff can stop by the Hofheimer Library during Love Liberally Week to participate in "Watch Kindness Bloom.” Participants select a leaf from the Kindness Tree and perform the act of kindness written on it, then return to write their reflections on giving or receiving an act of kindness on a flower. The tree “blooms” throughout the week. See the complete "Love Liberally" schedule.
