Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

For a long time now I've noticed the jobs.byu.edu ad in the plastic stands that sit on most of the HBLL tables. Well, I guess I should say that I've noticed the girl in the ad--you know, the one dressed in reddish-orange, folding her arms. Don't tell me you haven't noticed how attractive she is, and how she does not appear to be wearing a ring.

I would like to meet this girl. Ideally, I would see her on campus one day and say to her, bravely, "Aren't you the girl in that ad in the library?" Then, after a few minutes of conversation, I would ask her out. Unfortunately, I've never had the good fortune of seeing this girl anywhere, and none of my friends know her. So, at the risk of sounding sketchy (which I swear I'm not), I'm wondering if you have any ideas on how I could meet this queen of the library tables. Who knows--perhaps she'd be willing to go on a date with a tall, handsome, gentlemanly guy.

A: smitten -

pretty sure she's fake. she might be pretty, but advertisers tend to go out of their way to pretty up people who might not appear that way normally. as for the lack of a ring, there's a high chance that whomever shot the photos asked her to remove it. the purpose of the ad is to promote byu student employment, not to show off her marital status.

that said, if you still want to give her a shot instead of pursuing someone of a more corporeal nature, you could contact byu employment at student_hire@byu.edu. or contact byu advertising, who probably made the ad, at advertising.byu.edu.
