5 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Connecticut College is one of the most beautiful school's in the country, and this is not solely referring to the campus. The student body is overwhelming attractive. Everyone is generally well dressed and groomed.

1 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Girls here aren't anything to write home about. Very homogenous, white prep school girls. Most of them think they are much hotter than they are.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There are plenty of attractive women on campus, one of the benefits of the 60/40 guy girl ratio, and many of them are nice enough. I think Conn women want to get more serious with relationships as they get older. Seniors are much more likely to be in relationships than freshmen. Guys at Conn tend to be pretty relaxed and will take what comes to them. Both are generally northeastern preppy but there seems to be a definitive subculture of artsy people.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The girls here are beautiful. They are also nice and outgoing, but are more interested in longer term things than quick hookups because on a small campus they are worried about their reputation, which is fair enough.

Maybe it's Connecticut College's history as a former all-girl's school, or maybe just pure chance, but the ratio of guys to girls is about forty to sixty. Translation: guys have good odds here for a love connection, or at least a hookup. More often than not, Conn students aren't looking for long-term relationships, but serious relationships can develop from random hookups. Dances at Cro provide more than ample opportunity for both sexes to find a potential hookup buddy. If you like to take it slow in relationships, however, Conn may not be the place for you. Conn's small size and plentiful single rooms could effectively make you roommates with your new boyfriend/girlfriend before you know it.

Judging solely from student response, Conn guys, on the whole, are not hot, while Conn girls are more attractive than average. Both sexes care about their appearance; few stumble into class wearing crumpled clothes found under the bed. The dress code is decidedly preppy, and a group of students on campus can sometimes resemble a J.Crew ad. Then again, there is a significant portion of students who defy this edict and wear whatever they like. It all comes down to personal comfort. On the whole, Conn is a good-looking campus as long as your tastes don't skew goth or punk. If so, you're pretty much out of luck. It should be said that most students at Conn, guys and girls, are friendly and outgoing people.

Hookups or Relationships?
Hookups abound at Conn. If you looking for them, all you need is stumble to a Cro dance after the liquor starts flowing. An influx of Coast Guard Cadets looking for some action increases your chances. Of course, it is possible to start lasting relationships at Conn.
Best Places to Meet Guys/Girls
If you're looking for a relationship, the best way to meet someone is to join a club, organization, sports team-anything to get out of your room and meeting people. Conn is a pretty diverse school in terms of interests, so it helps to know that you have at least one common interest with the guy/girl you have your eye on. Conn parties are another way to go about this, but chances are you'll be too sloshed to make a lasting impression. Assuming you have someone you want to ask out, but are too shy, you could always try inviting him or her to your dorm's Crush Party. Here's how they work: you'll get two tickets, one for you and one to send anonymously to your crush. Several dorms take part in each Crush Party, so if everyone participated, there would be a good turnout. Unfortunately, no one ever does, so don't count on a Crush Party changing the fact that your crush doesn't know you're alive.
Dress Code
There is no escaping the fact that Conn is a preppy school. At times, it feels like J.Crew and Abercrombie and Fitch are the school's mandatory uniform.
