You won’t find many Abercrombie underwear models wandering Cornell’s campus. In fact, the running joke is that when students come to campus, they put on “Cornell Goggles” and their standards drop. But it’s really not that bad.
There are plenty of attractive people of either sex, whether your taste runs to preps or jocks or pirates. The party scene results in its share of hookups, while more sober social interactions often spark long-term relationships. Changing courses each month presents a unique opportunity to meet new people or potential love interests. Cornell is generally more sexually promiscuous than it is reserved, but only slightly. Lax policies regarding visitors and overnight guests in residence halls leave it up to the students to make decisions regarding where they sleep and with whom.
