Valentine’s Day may have passed, but we here at The Pink Flamingo believe in Valentine’s week. After all, why should relationships only be celebrated on one measly day? Besides, there’s lots of love in the air these days–for the victorious Green Bay Packers, for the (at least brief) return of above-freezing temperatures, for upcoming midterms…

Okay, so maybe we’re pushing it with that last one. However, what’s not to love about a relationship-themed issue of your favorite departmental newsletter? You’ll find all the news and a great Top Ten list below!
