Love is in the air at UMass Amherst! The campus culture here makes every holiday extremely fun for everyone, and Valentine’s Day is no exception.
The dining halls are decorated top to bottom in red. The food is all Valentine’s Day-themed. And, most exciting of all, a fondue station is set up in every dining common. Strawberries, pineapples, pretzels, and marshmallows are available to dip in a chocolate fountain. But get there fast! These fondue stations are extremely popular. Expect long lines, but trust me when I say it’s worth the wait.
If you’re not in the mood for the dining halls, I recommend coming up to Orchard Hill and getting Sweets & More. They have three limited-edition special shakes for Valentine’s Day. They also have amazing strawberry shortcake cookies, which I definitely recommend.
UMass Amherst knows how to do holidays right. Can’t wait for the next one!
