Name: Scott Sellers

School: Davidson

Class: Senior

Fraternity: SAE

Major: Environmental Studies

Minor: Economics

Hometown: Chapel Hill, NC

Relationship Status: Single

Activities: President of the Environmental Action Coalition, SAE Representative for the Patterson Court Sustainability Council, SAE Sustainability Chair and Service Co-Chair, member of Omicron Delta Kappa

Our cutie: an environmental heartthrob who never stops smiling.

I waited for him in the college student union. Flocked by some of his lady admirers, I saw Scott Sellers walk in, clad in blue Vans and a Tar Heels T-shirt. While Scott knew he was meeting me for an interview, the blond-haired pescatarian flashed a wide smile upon finding out he had been selected as Davidson College’s first campus cutie.

What’s your favorite part about yourself?

I like being balanced. I try to make schoolwork a priority without excluding having fun and going out. I’ve learned to be patient with people but not too patient.

What do you find attractive in a girl?

Sense of humor is probably one of the top things. I like a girl who is comfortable being able to laugh, not just a little snicker.

What’s your favorite item to have in a grilled cheese other than cheese?

Basil.

Why are you a pescatarian?

One, I don’t approve of factory-farmed meat. I think it’s largely detrimental to society and our environment. Two, health-wise, I feel more energetic and livelier without meat (particularly red) in my diet. And lastly, I watched the documentary Vegicated on factory-farmed meat processes this past summer and was blown away. You won’t want to eat meat after that film. I also lived in Davidson’s eco-house this past summer, so I learned a lot about eating environmentally there.

What are all the nicknames you’ve ever been called?

“Scottydoesntknow” was a middle-school favorite that got pretty annoying after a while. Sometimes people call me “Scottysells” or “Scotty.” My friend Keith has grown a habit of calling me “Softshell Taco,” so that’s interesting, too.

What is the weirdest place you’ve ever kissed someone at Davidson?

In the guest house by the piano.

What’s your ideal place in Davidson to take a date?

Flatiron.

What’s your favorite form of social media?

Instagram, for sure. I follow a bunch of environment accounts like “nature” and “natgeo” that makeup nearly 95 percent of my News Feed. 

Awesome! Now what else can I find on your phone? What songs are on your 25 most played iTunes playlist?

“Tin Man” by Future Islands, “Dill” by Band of Horses, “King of Spain” by The Tallest Man on Earth, “Office Musik” by Dwight K. Schrute vs. Weezy, “Latch” by Disclosure and “Breakdown” by Jack Johnson are some of my top jams.

And what would be your ultimate song to bump and grind to at a court party?

“I just don’t ever grind.”

This soft-spoken and self-proclaimed “French-toast” kind of guy is definitely a keeper in our books. He is lifeguard certified, stands on Davidson’s campus as the 22nd relative in his family to go here and has a killer sweet tooth. Ladies, start whipping up the cupcakes.
