Whether running around the lake or heading to the mall, Furman students work hard to keep up their appearances. But even without all the work, Furman has attractive people. Of course, not everyone here could be on a magazine cover, but there are very few complaints about looks from guys or girls. Everyone seems to admire everyone else's polished conservative style, but girls are often left wondering why they can't get a date. Though the boyish Abercrombie look is prevalent on campus, many girls will complain about the high girl-to-guy ratio. Girls seem somewhat bitter about not being able to find their husband at Furman.
Furman does have a reputation for having guys who are more attractive than the girls; however, things seem to be evening out some. There are definitely some nerdy, bookish-type people who are more socially awkward, but the majority of campus is attractive and social. The girls seem to stay in shape so they can fit perfectly into their Banana Republic chinos, and the guys have a conservative frat look.
