If you’re connected to Chico State on Facebook (and even if you’re not), there’s a good chance you’ve already seen our Valentine’s Day video. Viewed by more than 80,000 times in less than a week, the response has been incredible, and your feedback so positive. It shows how Wildcats embrace the idea that love can be shared by everyone, whether it’s romantic love, friendship, or simply a love for life.

In case you missed it:

What does 80,000 viewers look like? It’s more than four times the current student enrollment at Chico State, and enough people to fill the entirety of the London 2012 Olympic Stadium.
