The cosmopolitan and ambitious student body tends to place a greater emphasis on individuality, motivation, and intelligence than on appearance, but a fresh, clean-cut look doesn’t hurt, either.
Straight women at AU complain that satisfactory boyfriends are hard to find, as girls considerably outnumber the guys on campus. Plus, there is a notable gay population. Exploring the greater city may be a more efficient way to hook up. Don’t be afraid to go out and meet people at bars, clubs, city organizations, or just on the street. While it is somewhat difficult to find straight, good-looking guys, they do exist at AU—you just have to look a little harder.
