There are many great Valentine’s day events happening off campus as well.
Put the stability of your relationship to the test (ha,ha) by going ice skating with your favorite Valentine. We recommend ice skating at Boston Common’s Frog Pond for the outdoor experience, but if the cold isn’t your thing, try Steriti Memorial Rink in the North End.
Grab your spot on the couch to watch the perfect Valentine’s Day flick– by yourself or with your significant other. Our recommendations are: When Harry Met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle, Crazy Stupid Love, Pride and Prejudice, and The Notebook. Don’t forget the hot coco!

Pair great art, exciting music, and a free admission to the MFA (Boston Museum of Fine Arts) and you get the perfect date idea.

The event will be held in the Linde Family Wing for Contemporary Art at the MFA from 6-8pm, and don’t forget your NU student ID for free admission!
