10 reasons to spend Valentine’s Day with UAB

You can do the usual. Or you can celebrate the day of love by serving others, expanding your mind, creating or enjoying art in all forms, cheering on our team and indulging all your good senses.

All. Day. Long.
1) Suit someone else.
Women are helping women go places with donations of gently used, work-appropriate clothing and accessories for Suits 4 Success, sponsored by the UAB Commission on the Status of Women. Drop yours off 6:30-10 a.m. Feb. 10-14 at the Whitaker Building or in boxes throughout campus.

2) It’s written in the stars.
