The KU community certainly loves Valentine’s Day!
We enjoyed checking out the Valentine greetings from around the university today. Here’s a round up of the holiday messages we found.
KU Endowment asked current students “what do you love about being a Jayhawk?” They snapped pictures of the students, who were holding red hearts on which they’d written something they love about KU, near campus landmarks and compiled them into a Flickr set. Click here to see a slideshow.
KU History, a great web resource for anything you need to know about the university’s history, shared a cute image of James and Maude Naismith, circa 1927. James is holding a peach basket, and Maude is holding a ball. The headline reads “Love is a team sport.” Click here to see the photo on their Facebook page.
The KU School of Engineering folks shared some engineering-humor-themed Valentine cards on their Facebook page yesterday. An example: “You send me over the moon,” with a picture of an astronaut. Click here to see the photo.
The Center for Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies shared a clever image featuring historical figures with Valentine twists on their names. An example: “Quit Stalin, be my valentine.” Click here to see the photo montage.
KU Parking made the not-so-fun topic of parking a little more fun and shared several Valentine cards that also subtly encouraged people to follow parking rules. Click here to see a funny one about parking permits, and click here for another one involving speeding tickets. And, they have a third one with parking-related candy hearts here.
Happy Valentine’s Day, Jayhawks!
