Mr. and Ms. (almost) May
VJ Vesnaver ’11
VJ Vesnaver is the walking, talking, and often dancing embodiment of the Student Programming Board (SPB)’s motto: “Work hard, play harder.” This senior is quite the catch, but move fast—he’s only got two weeks left on the Hill!
Born in Chicago, VJ lived in England and San Francisco before settling in Salem, CT. An economics-mathematics and government double major with a minor in administrative science, VJ regularly takes five classes and occasionally audits a sixth for good measure. His rigorous academic pursuits don’t get in the way of his social life, however; VJ likes to let off steam after a tough day in the classroom with a Tuesday $6 burger special at Mainely’s, followed by several hours of heartfelt karaoke.
VJ’s sincerity and compassion are matched only by his uber-masculinity; don’t be surprised if you wander into his Alfond apartment and find him cleaning his gun while belting out Taylor Swift’s “Love Story” at top volume. A lover of pop anthems and skeet shooting alike, this charismatic charmer will soon be headed off to Boston. VJ will trade in his trademark camouflage hat for a suit as he takes on the economic consulting world, but don’t worry—he’ll surely still break it out on weekends. Financial security and style all in one package: what more could you ask for?
If you’re serious about pinning down this Pisces, consider a candlelit dinner and beachside stroll. He’s sure to make you swoon when he drops lines learned from his favorite romantic comedy icon, Matthew McConaughey—all you need to say in response is, “Romeo, take me somewhere we can be alone...”

Amie Fleming ’11
Have you ever wished you were dating a woman who had a fiery mane of flowing curls, could tell the difference between a nimbus and lenticular cloud, could climb mountains at ferocious speeds, and could create a watercolor masterpiece in under ten minutes? Shazam – here she is!
Amie Fleming is a senior science, technology, and society major, the secretary of the Outing Club, a Campus Conversations on Race (CCOR) leader, and a future resident of the most elevated town in America. When these activities aren’t occupying Amie’s time, you can find her sipping a Sebago stout with her friends at the pub, snapping award-winning (National Geographic-bound?) photographs, exploring the arboretum, or crafting her senior thesis.
If you’re interested in catching Amie’s attention, you still have two weeks left to do so! Here are some tips: casually find yourself ordering a Jorgensen’s asiago cheese bagel with garlic and herb cream cheese in line next to her on a rainy Saturday morning, drop a Mitch Hedberg line while sitting near her on the quad on a sunny afternoon, mention your desire to color-code your closet after a night at Club Viper, or rig up your travel and wildlife photographs up on the big screen in Pulver.
But don’t take it from us. In a recent interview with Amie, she explained her idea of the perfect date: “observing elephant migration in Botswana followed by a quick jaunt up Kilimanjaro, afternoon cloud-gazing, and dinner at a local, organic favorite.” Clearly, Amie Fleming is a girl you should know. Remember—you only have a few short weeks to make magic happen!
