Still scrambling for a Valentine’s Day gift for your sweetheart this evening? Checkout some potential last minute gifts you can pick up around campus today!

Looking for something simple? RoMo’s Cafe is selling different colored carnations today for just $2 each. Also in RoMo’s today, be sure to pick up any Candy Grams you purchased.

If you are looking for something a little more expensive, featured a Western Pennsylvania spa and fitness center that is offering some special Valentine’s Day specials. Body Bar has two locations – one in North Hills and another in Cranberry Township.

Some of the specials include a couple’s massage for just $119, which is originally priced at $140. Also gift certificates are available to be purchased at any price. For more offers and details about Body Bar, head over to

Is $119 a little too pricey for you, but you really want to impress your sweetie? How about tickets to the national tour of “American Idiot” the musical for just $28.25!

Students with a valid I.D. can purchase up to four tickets at any of the “American Idiot” performance, which is running at Heniz Hall from Feb. 19-Feb. 24, with special seating located in the first three rows. The only slight catch is that the tickets can only be purchased at the Heinz Hall box office on Sixth Street or the box office at Theater Square located at 655 Penn Avenue in downtown Pittsburgh.

Not a fan of musicals? Well, then how about a night out at the movies. “Safe Haven” is the latest movie to be adapted from a Nichols Sparks book – yep, that same guy who made every girl weep with “The Notebook.” So, fellows, you are pretty much guaranteed some hand-holding and cuddling.

Don’t forget! Valentine’s Day isn’t just about couples. It is a day to celebrate all of your loved ones, so be sure to send a quick text message to mom and dad!
