Approximately 180 students were able to make a stuffed animal for their loved ones and get an engraved ring at Thursday’s Valentine’s Day event.
The “Stuff-a-Plush” event was hosted by Campus Activities Board.
“If we’re going to dedicate a day to express love, then that’s what Valentine’s day is all about,” said CAB President Ruben Resendiz.
“Once a year (on Valentine’s Day) it’s a good time to show some love,” said James Lang, 26, who made a stuffed dog for his girlfriend.
“Valentine’s day is a pleasant holiday to celebrate with loved ones,” said Alannah Elliott, 20, who was making a “Stuff-a-Plush” for herself .
“Valentine’s day isn’t all about materialism,”said Jordan Velthose, 23, who was making a stuffed penguin for his girlfriend. “It’s more of a symbolic way to show love.”
