Students spread bigger message on campus this Valentine's Day
Quinnipiac students chose to celebrate this Valentine’s Day by giving back to the Hamden community.
Members of QTHON, Quinnipiac’s annual dance marathon to raise money for Connecticut Children’s Medical Hospital, began the week by selling chocolate covered strawberries with proceeds going towards the cause.
“It’s all about love the kids that are going through this hard time,” said QTHON dancer Olivia Hally, “ and what we can do to show our love and support for them, for this school, and for this community.”
QTHON is one of many student organizations that want to give back on the day of love. Alpha Chi Omega, Bobcats in the Community, and the Muslim Student Association all joined to celebrate the day of love.
“Making their day and making them happy… it’s just the cutest thing” said Irsa Awan, Public Relations Chair of the Muslim Student Association.
The students will continue to raise money for their causes after the holiday concludes, and will graciously accept all future donations.
