Who doesn’t like a good love story? As Valentine’s Day approaches, VCU News is seeking stories of couples who connected at VCU — or for whom VCU played a role in their relationship in some way.

With the university’s long history, there are alumni who met decades ago but there also are current students who met last year — perhaps through an online course due to the pandemic.

If you’re interested in sharing your story, email vcunews@vcu.edu by Jan. 21 with the subject line “VCU love stories.” Tell us a little bit about your love story and include your name, your partner’s name, degree program and class year if you’re a student or alum, and your title if you are an employee. We’ll select a collection of stories to publish ahead of Valentine’s Day.

It’s a great way to tell your significant other what makes them so wonderful, and to share it with the VCU community and beyond.
