Valentine’s Day, sports edition

Take notes, men! Some women at TCU prefer a Valentine’s Day weekend filled with cheers and excitement over the typical dinner by candlelight.

Courtney Collings, a junior strategic communication major, said that if a date asked her to a basketball game or any sporting event she would definitely attend.

“That would be fun and different,” Collings said. “It wouldn’t be cliche.”

But even if you don’t have a sweetie on this Valentine’s Day weekend, you can still enjoy some local sporting events with a bunch of friends.

Megan McDonald, a junior Spanish major, said going to the Stockyards with a bunch of girlfriends would be a fun outing.
