Psychology major and freshman, Cassie Collins: “Something I want to receive for Valentine’s Day would probably be a boyfriend.” Anything that a guy can do to win your heart? She replied: “Be a gentleman, but not clingy.”

3. Date Night In

Sonia Rivera, a senior majoring in communications, said that her perfect Valentine’s Day would involve a nice dinner and some flowers. 

“I don’t expect a gift. Just a nice time would do. A home-cooked meal or something,” she said.

4. Flowers Are Still Your Best Bet. 

Maya Parkinson, a freshman majoring in biomedical sciences, said flowers are the go-to. Especially roses!

Don’t forget the card! Katie, a senior, majoring in biology said that she would like to receive a card together with flowers.

5. Cards And Notes Of Appreciation

Jenna Tonnemacher, who is a graduate student, said she would like to receive, “A note of appreciation, or a thoughtful word of encouragement...Probably [from] friends and family, and just what they think of me, my value to them,” she said.
