Seniors Jim Walton and Jessica Fray broke their traditional Valentine’s Day routine this past weekend.
“For Valentine’s Day this year Jess and I went out to dinner at the Texas Roadhouse restaurant nearby, and then, instead of a movie like we normally do, this year we went bowling,” Walton said. “Me and Jess wanted to switch it up, and plus I feel like the movie theatre was going to be packed.”
Valentine’s Day, also known as Saint Valentine’s Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine, is observed on February 14 each year, and Stonehill students were a part of the tradition both on- and off-campus.
On campus, The Farm and the Carole Calo Gallery at Stonehill hosted a Valentine Making Party and Seed Exchange that was held in the Cushing-Martin Lobby. Seeds and refreshments were provided for those in attendance, as well as cookie decorating as a group activity.
Brandon Weiss and Jess Albano, both seniors, took the traditional approach this year in celebrating Valentine’s Day.
“We went to see that new movie, ‘50 Shades of Gray,’ it was obviously her idea. Although I knew the theatre was going to be packed, I knew going to this movie would make my girlfriend happy so I agreed to go. After the movie, we decided to get food at this Hibachi in Brockton. And then to cap off the night we hit up Hilliard’s for some chocolate. It was a great night in my opinion,” Weiss said.
