9 Romantic Activities to Do at GMU this Valentine’s Day

Ah, Valentine’s Day… the perfect holiday for young love to flourish on college campuses all across the country. However, as college students, it can be difficult to have an extravagant night out that our loved ones deserve. But worry not! George Mason University has plenty of low budget options right here on our campus! Opportunities for romance are all around us, if we just look hard enough! Via Giphy

1. Eat at Ike's

Nothing says romance like being surrounded by a bunch of freshmen and getting diarrhea an hour after eating!

2. Go to a GMU basketball game

This is a great option if you want a more intimate setting, as it’s likely you will be one of the few people there.

3. Try to find a parking spot together

This is an ambitious option, as the date will probably last a few hours. It may be more appropriate if you have been with your significant other for a while.
