Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day to all our Wake Forest families!  We wish you a day full of love and joy (and that your children remember to call/email/text you to tell you they love you!)

In honor of the day, we thought we might talk about some of the places on campus that seem especially perfect for young couples.

The Quad is a wonderful place to be at twilight when there is an especially interesting sky.







Another great time for the Quad is after the Lovefeast, when the luminaries are lit.  The whole place looks fantastic.







Some might sneak a smooch on the balcony of Huffman or Efird residence halls.  For the first year students on south campus, the roof of Babcock or Luter might also conceal a pair of lovebirds.






    If you want to take a romantic walk, there are great destinations at Reynolda Gardens.  There is a formal rose garden that blooms closer to spring and early fall; there is a great little columned area in which to sit, and there is the big field leading up to Reynolda House.  In years past it has been filled with black eyed susans; right now they are not.










Scales offers the allure of finding yourself backstage in the winding halls and rooms behind the theatre, or you can sit at the back entrance near the loading dock, which is not often busy unless a show is in rehearsal.






Just nearby on Davis Field, there are great swings that can provide a lighthearted moment of swinging/being pushed by your sweetheart.


This is a great place to be in love, and beauty is practically everywhere you look.  I hope your students  experience some of the romance of Wake Forest.
