I’m pleased to announce that Wes Vear is this week’s campus celebrity!
Disclaimer: Wes is super popular and his celebrity standing extends to the full calendar year.
Wes is super involved on campus. He’s been a member of the Men’s Rowing team for the past 4 years, and he’s also a part of Central Student Government and the Club Sports Council.
Wes Vear: “I’m the Club Sports Ex-Officio Representative on the Central Student Government Assembly—so I represent the 1,700 Club Sports athletes in CSG. I’m also the Men’s Rowing Team representative for Club Sports Council.”
Impressed? Wait, it doesn’t stop there…
WV: “I also work in a research lab in the chemistry department, working on water oxidation. And I volunteer with Michigan from the Heart, where athletes go visit kids at Mott’s Children’s Hospital.”
Anything else, Wes?
WV: “I also cook the best breakfast you’ll ever have.”
There you have it folks.
Her Campus: This is an awesome photo. Where was it taken?
WV: The Henley Royal Regatta in England.
HC: Is that your favorite regatta?
WV: By far my favorite regatta. Formal dress code in the Stewards Enclosure.
HC: So that’s why you’re dressed up?
WV: Yeah. Men are required to wear jackets and women are required to wear dresses.
(Pictured here, fourth from the left)
WV: “Marquette, MI in the UP. No, we aren’t all related.”
HC: Tell me a fun fact about yourself.
WV: “Went to watch Toy Story 2 in theaters when I was younger with my friend’s godmother, Oprah Winfrey.”
HC: Favorite memory at Michigan so far?
WV: “My first welcome week, wondering if college would always be like that.”
HC: Favorite Women’s sports team?
WV: “I’ll get in trouble if I don’t say the Women’s Rowing Team.”
HC: Favorite celebrity?
WV: Her Excellency The Rev. Sir Doctor Stephen Tyrone Mos Def Colbert, D.F.A., Heavyweight Champion of the World** featuring Flo Rida La Premiere Dame De France (Stephen Colbert).

WV: “I’m still not sure why you have so many pictures of young Woody Harrelson all around your house.” –Dan Vitas, Wes’s (hilarious) best friend/boyfriend
HC: Favorite movie?
HC: Favorite band/artist?
WV: “Dave Matthews Band or Bon Iver.”
HC: Wine or beer?
WV: “Depends on if I want to end up running around naked by the end of the night.”
HC: Rick’s or Skeeps?
WV: “Rick’s. Its combination of grime, puke in the bathroom sinks, and low lighting is impossible to top.”
We’re all dying to know….:
HC: What’s on your bucket list?
WV: Have sex in space.
HC: Who’s your Dream Girl? Laura Kooistra? (Michigan student/certified hottie)
Shakira Salma Hayek. Or anyone that will speak Spanish to me all night long.
HC: This is some great material.
WV: But seriously, make sure you add the Spanish speaking description. I’m trying to troll for Latinas.
(Wes and I freshmen year. The theme was “famous couples.”)
