With less than a week until Valentine's Day, many of you are probably putting the finishing touches on your oh-so-perfect plans for the day. Flowers in her dropbox? Check. A serenade delivered by the Kroks to his classroom? Check. Candlelight dinner atop of Memorial Church? Okay, maybe that's taking it too far.

More likely, all the talk about fancy dinners and dates is burning a hole through your already empty wallet. Well, you're in luck.

The UC's Student Initiatives Committee is launching "I See Love," a special opportunity through which hopeful romantics can apply for Valentine's Day grants. All you have to do is submit a detailed proposal and itemized budget of your plans to be considered.

Three of the most mind-blowing and well-planned dates will win $100 each from the UC.

"We thought that this create-a-date contest would be a great way to encourage people to plan fun dates for Valentine's Day," said UC Student Initiatives Committee Chair Nicholas W. Galat '13.

Applications are due to ucdating@gmail.com by Sunday, Feb. 12, at 5 p.m., and winners will be announced that very same night.

So, what are you waiting for? Listen to the beat of your heart and get started on planning the most luxurious $100 date you can think of.
