A person’s ideas about Valentine’s Day usually go one of two ways — they either love it or else they see it as an unscrupulous ploy by the greeting card, candy and flower industries to rake in money.
Regardless of which category you fall into, I’ve got some great ideas for you and your special someone (yes, your special someone could be yourself) to enjoy the holiday this week at little or no cost, some without ever leaving campus!
The Newcomb Archives has an amazing collection of early 20th century love notes available for viewing. With all of the technology we have these days it’s nice to revisit these handwritten, pre-e-mail sweet nothings.
‘An Evening of Dance’
Attend a Newcomb Dance Company performance Feb. 18–20. Tickets are $9 for the Tulane community and $12 general admission. The shows are worth every penny — Insider’s honor!
