Valdosta State University students hosted a Valentine's Day celebration to raise awareness about violence against women.
Free food, music, prizes, and dancing brought people to VSU's front lawn.
The Women's and Gender Studies Department used Valentine's Day as a day to stop violence against women.
The event is a call to action based on the statistic that one in three women in the world will be beaten or raped during her lifetime.
"It's a day of love, it's a campaign to raise awareness to love women. One in three women will be raped or beaten and so all women should be loved," said Kat Norsworthy, event organizer.
The Haven battered women's shelter was there to give women information about getting out of abusive relationships.

Local businesses spent Friday preparing for their busiest shopping day of the year -- Small Business Saturday.
With the holiday season upon us, it's important to think about your furry friends too.
People formed a line around the Best Buy in Valdosta just to get inside so they could take advantage of the sweet deals.
