Guys? They're pretty sloppy and a touch androgynous (even the jocks). Girls? They're pretty sloppy and a touch androgynous. What can you say—the school has a huge art department. It's rumored that Playboy magazine once rated Alfred University as having the ugliest girls. It's just a rumor, of course. There are very attractive people to be found on campus (although it's hard to tell under all those layers). The men's swim team, for instance, seems to be getting quite a bit of buzz.
There is no "Alfred type," though there is such a thing as an "Alfred couple." Unlikely matches are common here, probably because you'll discover a person's personality long before you ever see a midriff, and you better believe that people are hooking up. Students are all just up here doing their own thing and trying to keep warm; and nothing keeps them warmer than, well, doing their thing!
