1 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Girls range in appearance, but most of them all look the exact same. Their interests are all the same, too. There is zero sense of individuality. Everything is a competition. Identity and a sense of personal style are sacrificed for yoga pants and North Face jackets. "Cool" girls party at the frat houses on weekends. Relationships are pretty shallow and insignificant.

Guys blend together in the greyest shade of unintelligible sludge ever. Mostly all dudes wear what are essentially pajamas to every conceivable event. Everyone likes SPORTS. Everyone likes terrible pop music. Everyone says, "brah." Drinking is basically everything. Relationships are shallow and things can get pretty misogynistic.

Guys & Girls: I have plenty of friends that i have at school. Most people there are nice and fun to hang out with and be with.

2 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: At Bradley there are few alternatives to going to parties. Events are few and far between. When there is something going on, no one knows it is happening because there it is not sufficient advertising for it. Also, the attendance to the events is low. The atmosphere at Bradley can be stressful because of the large partying community. A large percentage of the campus is involved in Greek life. For relationships, many people participate in random hook-ups.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Most students dress very typical of what would be shown in the media. Not overly expensive clothes. Most students are part of the middle class, though you will find a few students who have a lot of money coming from their parents. Interests are very diverse. There are sports clubs and social clubs that are abundant on campus. Men's Basketball is about the only sport that students attend and that is if our team is good. Our soccer team is good each year but no one attends those games. There are no bars that students walk to near campus. Everyone drives to the bars or takes taxis. Frats and Sororities are usually the house's throwing off campus parties but the police never let the parties really go on.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Bradley is like a big high school, and every stereotypical clique is represented. But no matter where a student falls in the mix, he or she is likely to find someone to suit them. Students can't be dumb to go to Bradley, so everyone is at least mildly intelligent, which makes for good conversation most of the time. As far as looks go, Bradley students are best described as "average," though the girls seem to be a bit more attractive than the guys. Walking to class isn't like walking the catwalk with a bunch of models, but there are plenty of people from both sexes who are attractive—and plenty who aren't.

With a mix of interests, career paths, and an assortment of student organizations, it's easy to find a dateable person. Whatever someone is up for, he or she can find someone if they're looking. Bradley students are friendly, so it's easy to start a conversation. There are random hookups sometimes after a night at the bar or a wild party, but for the most part, Bradley isn't outrageously promiscuous. A lot of people seem to be in a relationship for the long haul, but it's not always with another Bradley student—many people have boyfriends and girlfriends from other colleges. As far as the girl-to-guy ratio is concerned, Bradley is mostly equal, or at least that's how it appears. However, there are more guys in engineering classes and more girls in art classes, for example. Every field is different, but sometimes students have to be willing to search outside their majors to find that special someone.

Social Scene
Bradley students are mostly outgoing and like to have a good time. There are quite a few parties during the week and weekend. Students also like to go to the bars, but if you're younger than 21, you likely won't get in because local bars are strict about underage drinking. Students also like to hang out in small groups at their dorms, apartments, and houses. No matter what night of the week it is, there are people who go out to the bars, too.
Hookups or Relationships?
Like any school, some people seem to be in relationships for the long haul, while others would rather skip the commitment and hook up instead. So, whether you're unattached or in a relationship, it's easy to find people to mingle with and suit your interests.
Dress Code
Most people dress very casually for class. Anything beyond jeans and a T-shirt or hoodie is considered dressed up during the day. Some students even wear sweatpants to class, as if they just rolled out of bed and threw on a backpack. When going out at night, girls dress skimpy in tight jeans or leggings with a dressy top and heels, even when it's cold. Guys seem to look the same year-round, wearing jeans and a decent shirt, such as a polo or button-up.
