You’ve probably heard of Valentine’s Day, but have you heard of SAD? If you haven’t, you’re probably in a relationship. But for you single pringles on campus, SAD stands for Singles Awareness Day: an annual holiday on February 15. 

Luckily, if you’re single, there is still hope for you this weekend. In fact, you may have even more fun than your cuffed friends. As your friendly neighborhood editorial board, we have compiled a brief list of 10 things you can do for SAD this year, and 10 things for Valentine’s Day as well.
