3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: The men and women on campus are just kinda simple joe's and jane's. There's no typical student look really. Cornell is filled with a variety of characters that makes "typical" kinda rare. Relationships at Cornell can be tricky. I don't think the majority of Cornell students are interested in anything serious. That's not to say that there aren't those in serious relationships or seeking something withstanding, but the block plan isn't a friend to those wanting anything serious.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: same ol same ol white girls leggings ugg boots and lots of make up. boys- jerks and mostly jocks so not worth the time. social life..yea u can have one if you're into standing and dancing around with a drink in your hand.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: In my opinion my campus is not full of attractive men, there are some but not a lot. There seems to be a lot who come to school already in relationship, and there seems to be many who are unsure of what they want.

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.

Birth Control Available?
Yes
Condoms are available in the student health center and cost 3 for $0.50- paid on the honor system. St. Luke's Family Planning Clinic comes to campus about twice a month and provides other forms of contraception, with fees based on income. Pregnancy tests and emergency contraception are also available at the health center.
Best Places to Meet Guys & Girls
  1. Parties and classes are by far the best places to meet potential dates.
  2. Classes at Cornell present a unique opportunity to meet a variety of people due to the block plan. Changing classes every three and a half weeks also means the potential to meet 10 to 25 new people each block.
Best Places to Hook Up
Parties and the bars are where most hookups happen for one obvious reason-alcohol. However, be careful, because on a campus as small as Cornell's, "secret" hookups never stay secret.
Social Scene
The Cornell social scene is certainly eclectic. On average, students are outgoing, but often stay confined to specific groups of friends. Most students could draw a map of what groups sit where in the dining hall.
That said, social interaction between groups does exist, most often at parties or other events. Drinking is a big part of the social scene, but you don't have to drink to have fun here.
Hookups or Relationships?
Cornell is an interesting mix of random hookups and serious relationships, without a whole lot in between. The block plan creates a sort of time warp that speeds up the way relationships develop. A relationship that would ordinarily last an entire semester can run its course in one three-and-a-half-week block.
Dress Code
The dress code is pretty much anything goes at Cornell. In class or the dining hall, you'll see everything from PJs and sweats to dresses and ties. Stick around long enough and you're likely to see a pirate costume or medieval gown, as well. Theme parties are pretty popular in the Greek community, and most girls "get cute" when they go out to the bars.
