2 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Once it gets warm, all the guys are out in their finest pastels. Everyone wears sperrys, j crew, and vineyard vines. There's a few students who go against this norm, but they're tough to seek out sometimes. Everyone is really friendly. Everyone holds doors for each other. Girls are generally more attractive than the boys here.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Typically, people are very nice and like to have fun on the weekends. However, everyone at Holy Cross is very studious. People truly care about their grades, but everyone also cares about each other -- there's a great sense of camaraderie. Also, guys and girls tend to dress preppy.

Given the general lack of diversity at Holy Cross, it’s not surprising that most of the guys and girls are “cut from the same mold.” The campus, as a whole, is extremely preppy, and the majority of students seem to be from upper-middle-class backgrounds, so comparisons to catalogue models are particularly apt. The majority of guys and girls are good-looking in the clean-cut, preppy way. As at any school, people’s appearances vary, but for the most part, the average Holy Cross student is above average in terms of looks.

The hookup scene is an interesting story at Holy Cross. It is de?nitely not a dating school, and most people in serious relationships are dating their high school sweethearts. In most cases, Holy Cross dating seems to be something that happens by accident. Holy Cross is infamous for hooking up and the gossip that ensues from such acts. What passes for a casual relationship is repeated hooking up—hooking up with the same person on weekends, avoiding them all week, and not talking until next Friday’s party. However, serious relationships at Holy Cross are very serious and generally long term—most last years and not months. Interestingly, despite their unwillingness to commit in the undergraduate years, a high percentage of Holy Cross alumni marry other alums!

Social Scene
The social scene centers on alcohol. During the week, students tend to go out to bars, especially on Tuesday and Thursday nights. On weekends, parties dominate. Sundays are usually spent recuperating from Saturday night and getting work done.
Hookups or Relationships?
Random hookups are the norm; there is no such thing as casual dating.
Dress Code
The student body is overwhelmingly preppy. Pajamas are okay to wear to class, so long as it's early in the morning. Otherwise, most students are dressed fairly well and look put together for class. Comparisons to students looking like they just stepped from a J.Crew catalog are pretty much right on target.
