Students can either anonymously send a candy gram or they can sign it letting someone special know they are thinking of them. 

What is the meaning behind the candy grams besides just showing how much you care?  Member of Campus Programming Board Alurah Williams said, “The purpose of Campus Programming boards valentines day candy grams are to spread love, not germs, throughout the pandemic, we knew how it felt to be away from the people we love so this is the perfect opportunity to express that love we have.” After spending the last two years in a nationwide pandemic feeling a bit of normalcy this valentine's day can bring a smile to someone's face. 

A candy gram can be a great way to show someone you care about them or just want them to feel special. Junior Linnea Beger says that, “The candy grams are a great pick me up this time of year. They show you that someone cares and is thinking about you. Especially during these crazy times as school is kicking back up into full gear.” Sending someone a sweet little treat can be a great way to get their mind off of all the stress of college life.
