Love’s in the air and candy’s in the mail for business sweethearts
Attention College of Business alums who met, then fell crazy in love and eventually tied the knot with your college sweethearts — your alma mater has a sweet remembrance headed your way for Valentine’s Day.
More than 150 couples will be receiving a student-designed Valentine’s card and box of candy. And for those married business graduates not receiving the Valentine’s Day remembrance, you can get on next year’s list.
“These couples have a special connection to the business school and this is one way we stay in touch and let them know our bonds with them, like their relationships, are forever,” said Del Glasgow, the business school’s associate director of Donor Relations. “There are likely other couples who met here that are not on our list, and we’d like to hear from them.”
This is the fifth year the business school has gone sweet on its graduates who met at Clemson and were married. The chocolate morsels will be accompanied by a Valentine’s card designed by graphic communications major Holland Haag, who the business school enlisted to serve as this year’s designated cupid.
The senior honors student’s card design depicts a “heartfelt” map of Clemson, one of three versions she created as an assignment from Eric Weisenmiller, associate professor. The text inside the card, “Where minds are molded and hearts are melded together” was penned by Taylor Cook, director of development.
“I think this design was chosen because the message it sends is that your love of Clemson brought you to the love of your life,” Holland said. “I really enjoy designing things like brochures and posters and do it mostly for friends. The greeting card is a first for me.”
Married business graduates, if you do not receive this year’s romantic remembrance, contact Del Glasgow, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
