At Mason, chemistry is definitely not limited to the classroom. The stories of the 16 couples chosen as semifinalists for the Mason Sweetheart 16 contest show that the university really can be the spark of something long-lasting.

The stories tell of romantic dates, sweet marriage proposals, embarrassing falls and trips, love of Mason basketball, stars aligning and more.

Read all about the couples and vote for your favorite here.

You may vote for one couple per 24-hour period per IP address. First-round voting ends on 11:59 p.m. EST on Thursday, Jan. 13.

Look for the Engaging Eight, the second-round couples, to be posted the morning of Friday, Jan. 14. The final four couples will be posted Tuesday, Jan. 18.

The winning couple, who will be announced Monday, Jan. 24, will receive a two-night stay during Homecoming Weekend at the brand-new Mason Inn Conference Center and Hotel, including breakfast and dinner; primo seats to the Homecoming men’s basketball game on Saturday, Feb. 5; an all-access pass to all Homecoming activities; plus some Mason swag.

What could be better than love and basketball?
