Unfortunately, for any women attending the school, there is a very unequal male-to-female ratio, with women significantly outnumbering men (perhaps due to the fact that Dominican was an all-female university for a significant amount of time). The men who do appear at Dominican typically have an athletic or preppy style, but some others tend to "march to their own beat" with their unique style. The girls' style is just as eclectic; many have a laid-back, athletic style, but others are preppy or have a more unique look.

While Dominican might not be the greatest place to find a relationship, it's a great place to meet new people and create new friendships. Because the campus is so small, it is likely that students see many of the same faces in the halls and buildings daily, and these familiar faces can become friends soon enough! Many friendships can also be created during meals in the dining hall.

Social Scene
Students are pretty outgoing, but many tend to stick with their groups of friends. Even so, you are likely to receive a friendly smile or hello from a few other students (even if you really don't know them well) as you walk around campus.
Hookups or Relationships?
There is a much greater emphasis on relationships on campus; hookups are generally not common or at least not heard about.
Dress Code
The overall dress code for both guys and girls is casual and relaxed. Most guys on campus have an "athletic" look-sweatpants/soccer pants, hooded sweatshirts, etc. Girls can also be seen sporting this look, wearing jeans or sweatpants, T-shirts, and hooded sweatshirts to class. A laid-back, preppy, casual look is also popular with both guys and girls. Guys can be seen wearing polo, button-down, or T-shirts with designer names (i.e., Abercrombie, Armani Exchange). Girls can also be seen wearing name-brand shirts, sweatpants, and shoes from places like Abercrombie, Bebe, and Guess.
