Celebrate Leo Love Week
This week we celebrate Valentine’s Day and St. Valentine whose feast day is February 14. While the exact origin of the holiday is debated, Valentine’s Day is recognized as a day for love, devotion, and romance.
Saint Leo marks the love fest with Leo Love Week, February 11 through February 15. Sponsored by the Student Government Union, Leo Love Week celebrates the love for the university and its community. ”It’s a week to remind everyone of the core values and that the smallest things can make someone’s day,” said Edson O’Neale, director of Student Activities.
