Let LBJSC Be Your Bobcat Valentine!
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, Bobcats! Although things may look a bit different this year, LBJSC is here to help spread the love. Whether you’re in a relationship, want to spend a special day with your friends, or need some self-care, we’ve put together a list of some fun activities for you to do to make this your best V-day yet!
A movie night is one of the most reliable Valentine's Day traditions, and you can still replicate the experience virtually through Chrome extensions like Netflix Party! It’s easy to download and allows you to share your screen with friends so that you can all binge your favorite Rom-Coms together. The best feature of this extension is the chat box, where you can send messages back and forth while the movie is playing. Netflix Party! Is a great way to simulate the movie-theatre experience if you have a Netflix subscription. Just grab some popcorn and don’t forget to make sure your laptop is fully charged.
If you’re looking for a way to spice up a date night and connect with people from all over the globe, check out Airbnb’s online experiences. This is the one stop shop for a cool virtual date night, with options ranging from Tango classes taught by experts in Argentinian or pasta making classes given by Grandma's in Italy. Prices usually range from 20-60 dollars a person depending on the experience, but each one is sure to offer hours of fun. Just search through the site and pick out whatever calls to you!
Of course, if you’re on a budget this holiday season, we’ve scouted a few museums that have virtual tours that allow you to see some of the world’s greatest art and artifacts for free! The Smithsonian is one of the best museums to learn about natural history and currently offers an in-depth tour of all its exhibits. The Met is another great virtual option to enjoy with your boo on Valentine’s day, offering a 360-degree view of its incredible art and architecture. Bobcats can capitalize on this opportunity and go visit some of their favorite museums from the comfort of their own room.
For those Bobcats spending this Valentine’s Day on campus, be sure to stop by the LBJ Marketplace and grab a specialty treat for you or your significant other! They have everything your heart (or your partners) desires, including Valentine’s themed milkshakes and heart-shaped desserts to share. This is also the perfect spot to grab any last-minute gift items like valentine candy boxes if you’re in a crunch for time. The space is now fully stocked with delicious snacks and necessities to make your time in LBJSC even more worthwhile. While you’re there, be sure to try some of our new dining options and let us know what you think by tagging us on our social media @LBJSC.
