For those of you who hate love, hearts or cheesy holidays, February 14th is probably one of the most dreaded days of the year for you. Also known as Singles Awareness Day, not everybody loves to celebrate Valentine’s Day. In fact, most people despise it.
The Student Involvement and Leadership Center (SILC) is setting out to make this day a little more bearable for those of you who have a hatred for this commercial holiday. On Feb. 13 the SILC is hosting an event called “Stupid Cupid.”
Estefany Vega the co-lead for the event said, “We are going to try and celebrate the idea of not celebrating the day of love.”
If you’re single, taken, dating around or whatever and you’re not into the mushy gushy love stuff, hearts, flowers or teddy bears then the Stupid Cupid event is for you.
This is the first time SILC has hosted this event. The Stupid Cupid event will be free for all students. Activities will include smashing a heart shaped piñata, dart games where you can win prizes, free pizza, ice cream and cookies.
In addition to those activities and many more, SILC give away free tickets to the Lady Antebellum concert at Taco Bell Arena.
“Its kind of a fun thing to do instead of the typical Valentine’s Day stuff,” Vega said.
The event starts at 5:30 p.m. in the Special Events Center lobby. Immediately following Stupid Cupid the blockbuster movie night will show “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.” The Blockbuster movie is free for students and $1 for non-students.
Whether you hate to love, or love to hate, this event is a great way to celebrate with others who don’t want to celebrate the day of love.
