9 Campus Cuties Who Can't Wait for Christmas


Steven Lee is probably one of the sweetest guys I have ever met. He is someone you can always count on 100% of the time and he will even listen to you vent for countless hours about useless drama. Aside from being a cutie, Steven is highly romantic and knows exactly how to treat a girl. He’s definitely a keeper! Steven is hilarious, intelligent, and an amazing friend. (Oh and word on campus is that he gives a fantastic back rub!)

Name: Steven Lee
Hometown: Lansdale, PA "I grew up in the same house my whole life, and I hope to live there for the rest of it."
School: Villanova
Class: 2014
Relationship Status: Taken
Major: Political Science, secondary education, and honors triple major, with minors in Psychology, business and history.

Involvement on Campus: Well, my main involvement this year is with the Phi Sigma Pi honors fraternity. I am on the executive board and that takes up a good amount of my time. Otherwise, I am getting ready to student teach in the spring and doing research for my honors thesis.

What’s your ideal girl like?
Well, my ideal girl is a smart, probably introvert who prefers a quiet night over a party or going to a bar. She is extremely passionate about what she does and loves helping people. She is very close to her family and values close, personal relationships above all else. I’ll know she’s the one because I’ll realize I don’t deserve her at all.

Turn On: A girl who looks like she’s just ready to study and lounge around. Sweats and a t-shirt, no makeup. Just natural beauty.
Turn Off: A girl who is too self-absorbed and cannot actually be in a relationship with anyone else because she is in one with herself.

What is your idea of a perfect date?
Good question, I’ve never actually done this before, probably because I fall asleep way to early for this to be possible, but one time I would like to have a quiet eveing with my date, make dinner together and then snuggle up for a movie. Then, since it’s our first date, which I forgot to mention, we stay up for a couple more hours just talking and getting to know each other better. Come 3 or 4 am, I ask her if she’d like to watch the sunrise with me. She says yes, and we drive down the beach and watch the sunrise together and share our first kiss. The beginning of a happy ever after :)

What’s your most memorable experience at Villanova?
My most memorable experience was probably with this cute girl I met when I studied abroad in Prague. She turned out to be a great friend, and we spent some time awesome weekend traveling together.  We didn’t drink or go out too much, but on one of the last nights, we decided to go with the group to the largest club in Central Europe. It was so much fun and we danced the night away.

Have you studied abroad anywhere else?
I also did a six week study abroad in Sienna, Italy.

Name: Erik Richison
Age: 22
School: OK State
Year: Senior
Hometown: Tulsa, Okla.
Relationship Status: Single

Organizations: The Wells Project, official photographer for the Judah and the Lion concert.

Favorite pickup lines: Something like, "Hey want me to pick you up at 8?" Or "Hey you look kind of tired, want me to pick you up?" Or if I'm feeling real good, "Hey I noticed you were wearing Chanel Number 5, want me to be your number one?" 

Favorite memories at OSU: My favorite memory at OSU is rushing the field after the OU game in 2011. I thought I was having fun till I noticed Spencer Mobley and Vincent Sorrentino straddling the torn down field goal post. Now you tell me, who truly ended up on top in that game?

Worst date ever: I was wearing a fresh cardigan, newly purchased from Gap. Ray Bans in check, legs crossed and lips pursed just enough to make a statement. I then held that pose for 30 minutes...an hour...an hour fifteen.  After acting like I had important things to do on my phone for the next few minutes I called it quits. Carefully, but sternly, ripped off the Wayfarers from utop my nose and drove home. Being stood up is the worst, is it not?

Boxers or Briefs: Boxers. I was never a fan of golden retrievers or chocolate labs. Boxers just have a look of sternness to them. Their posture says, "I could rip you apart, but I won't because I respect you."

Why did you come to OSU: I came to OSU because I wanted to because I wanted to be a Beta. Truly an amazing group of men that I am proud to call my brothers.

Deal breakers: I'm not sure I have deal breakers, but a quote I really like to describe something like this is, "A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ that a man should have to seek Him to find her." 

Favorite things about OSU: Marcus Smart and Markel Brown dunks, Mike Gundy's post locker room dances, Study Abroad in Holland and whenever our announcer at football games yells, "Cowboyyyyyy...marching band!" 

OSU women are the best because..: A quote from one of my favorite Cowgirls, "I want to be a Renaissance woman. I want to paint, and I want to write, and I want to act, and I want to just do everything." - Emma Watson. Oh, did she not attend OSU? What a mistake I have made. But really, the Cowgirls are the best.

Favorite Holiday and Why: I wish more people would appreciate Flag Day, nothing like seeing old glory fly on a windy day. But anyway, my favorite holiday is Christmas. I mean come on, what did you expect me to say? Something silly like Flag Day?

Meet Kyle, this week's Campus Cutie! He is a senior at Conn, and when he's not swimming in the pool, he is helping students with their careers as a CELS Fellow or baking for Camel Catering! Read on to learn about his favorite swim team moment, guilty pleasure (it's a good one), and what he does as a CELS fellow! 

Name:Kyle Matson
School: Conn College
Year: 2014
Major/Minor: Psychology/Philosophy
Hometown: Brookfield, CT
Relationship Status: Single
Dorm: JA
Extracurricular Activities: Swim Team, CELS Fellow, SAAC, Camel Catering

How’s it been to be on the swim team? Are you getting nostalgic that it’s your last year?
It’s awesome, we’ve got a great team this year and I’m looking forward to seeing where we go. As far as being nostalgic…well…I’ve been longing for the day that I retire from the sport of swimming, but yes it will be a little be sad.

Since you’re a senior, what has been your favorite moment on the swim team?
My favorite moment goes back to last year. It’s actually many moments. For one, we had a legendary recruiting night, in which we got almost every recruit that came for that weekend. Then we got into some trouble, went through some rough patches, but we had an incredible ending. The men’s team finished 3rd in the NESCAC, the highest place in college history. Coach received Coach of the Year and we were all thrilled about that. On top of all that, the women’s team had the highest overall GPA out of any team in the nation. GO CAMELS!

What do you do before a swim meet to get you excited before a race?
Honestly not much. Think about my race, stretch, warm up, and wish everyone else good luck before their races.

Besides being on the swim team, you are also a CELS fellow; tell us a little bit about that. What all do you do?
The most obvious role as a CELS Fellow is in the workshops that we hold. Other than that, we do individual meetings, and freshmen intakes. I see about 3 freshmen a week to talk about classes, professors, and possible majors. A follow-up email is sent right afterwards with a summary of everything we talked about and links for web pages we may have looked at. Also, there is a LinkedIn event that I’m helping run that will be on Wednesday 10/23 in the JA Common Room if anyone is interested!

Now some fun questions!

Favorite food: I loveee guacamole
Guilty Pleasure: Baking Camel cookies in Smith Kitchen for Camel Catering

Speaking of baking, what do you do for Camel Catering? Is there a secert recipe for those delicious camel cookies? 
Camel Catering is actually a lot of fun, I work usually 6 hours a week and do tons of things. I roll out and bake camel cookies, brownies, scones, assorted cookies, blondies. You name it, I bake it.  And if there was a secret recipe then I wouldn't be able to tell you, would I?

Life motto: Just keep livin'

What’s been your most embarrassing moment while being at Conn?
Oh jeez…there’s a few that come to mind. I’m just going to say Hamilton 215 and leave it at that.

If you were to have dinner with any historical figure (dead or alive) who would it be and why?
Hmm, I’m gonna say Mark Wahlberg. I think that guy is a boss, I have a ton of respect for him, and I would love to live the life of Entourage.

Favorite song: At the moment, Sail by AWOLNATION.

How would you describe your perfect date? December 25, Christmas is the best time of year.

Dream celebrity date: Oh, Emma Watson for sure.

If you won the lottery, what would you do with the money?
Probably splurge a little bit then save it. I don’t think I would want it to be honest, nor are the chances really in my favor, 1 in 175,223,510 doesn’t look too good.

How do you feel about being Campus Cutie?
Well, I never expected I would receive an email saying I was Campus Cutie so I feel very humbled.

Hidden talent: I can play the trumpet and piano. (He's basically Billy Joel)

What advice would you give to girls about guys in general? Cut us some slack when possible. We can be pretty immature, so don’t take everything personally. A lot of times, we can’t be perfect.  

When would you say guys look for relationships? It all depends on the guy. Some wouldn’t touch a relationship, whereas others, like me, prefer them. I guess it just depends where you are at in your life.  

What was your reaction when asked to be Campus Cutie? Quite surprised. I never thought I’d get it, but it was humbling that someone thinks I qualify for it.
