More to Love

Many of us associate this time of year with Valentine’s Day and connecting with the special people in our lives. For us in student affairs, we are doubly blessed—the loves in our lives extend even further. Just think of the love found in:

  • That moment of authentic discovery, when the light in a student’s eyes goes on
  • The feeling you get when a student says thanks—for being a mentor, for helping out, even in a small way
  • Seeing a once-timid incoming student emerge years later—strong, self-assured and ready for the world
  • Helping a student overcome an unexpected life challenge with resiliency and move forward anew
  • Collaborating with colleagues, building something meaningful to benefit students
  • Sharing in the great ideas of students and staff as they come alive on campus, changing our community for the better

For us, in addition to our other loves, love includes making a difference in the lives of students and our UGA community. It’s why we’re here and what we’re called to do. To me, that kind of love is a season we can share not only on Valentine’s Day, but let it be a catalyst for us throughout the year.
