Valentines Day at Campbell University in 1989 contained a dance, big dresses, and cute couples.
While we might not be having a dance, not much has changed. After reading the story about the event, it is evident the same things are expected out of Valentine’s Day today. A “knight in shinning armor” and red, white and pink balloons are things people think of when they hear this cliche holiday.
Another thing that hasn’t changed is a student’s love for food. The caption reads “A full table of refreshments is always the main attraction at a dance.” This is certainly still true today. We college students are drawn to an event if there is going to be good free food and the dances that CAB puts on today (especially spring formal) is known to have delicious food.
