Golden evening at the Golden Dome

How is your love life? Are you in a happy, long-term relationship? Are you out and about, looking for a mate? Or are you thinking there is no one out there for you and you're thinking about giving up casting your net into the sea?

Well, as the cold weather is approaching, there is the perennial turn to the dorm- and off-campus party. From these flows the hook-up culture. Even though Valentine's Day is over three months away, Pillars and OADE, sponsored by the GRC, are hosting 49 ½ First Dates. The event will consist of speed dating/"friending" and a panel discussion on the role of healthy relationships. Delicious mocktails will be served throughout the evening by your wonderful peers. Come out to meet new friends and perhaps connect with your true love.

All are invited, whether you are in a long-term relationship, are looking for love or friendship or are just curious as to the noise coming from the Ballroom in LaFun. Come on over on Wednesday night at 8 p.m — there's a surprise in store. We promise to have a fun-filled evening while considering the role of healthy relationships in college students' lives. This will be a great way to celebrate healthy relationships in light of Sexual Violence Awareness Week, and how we as a community can work together to bring about the brighter side of things.
