Soft stuff

I know Valentine’s Day has come and gone, but a little pop culture rewind in the name of love is never too late.  The media’s take on love is multi-faceted, like the coverage of any other controversial topic.  What exactly does love mean?  What are the different types of love, and how do they intermingle in our daily lives?  I know the romance topic might be beaten to death by now, but take a look at this link and start considering how the media (even if it’s just a student online publication) covers pop culture, and how pop culture permeates people’s lives.

-NorthbyNorthwestern.com is a student-run site full of aspiring writers at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois.  Their media team created a clever (and kind of fun) way to explore love on Valentine’s Day.  Reading the stories and clicking on the pieces of  the heart make you feel like you’re playing a board game.  It’s often said the young love the most passionately of all – these students definitely have an interesting perspective.
