5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Everyone is attractive and smart.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Georgetown offers a great diversity of students. Interests are as varied and dress is like any college. I don't have time to get involved in the social aspects and relationships at this time.

5 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: Students are sharp. They look wealthy but at the same time they look very down-to-earth people. Some of them are very social and very interesting to talk to. Everyone has come to DC to succes in their lives.

Guys & Girls: Prep on prep on prep with a side of prep to go; that's the only defining feature of a Georgetown guy or girl. Otherwise, it's a pretty average bunch. There's a sporty atmosphere so quite a few students hit the gym often; however, the library is never empty (and the 2nd floor study space's coffee shop makes it a social hangout).

Most social interactions take place through clubs and campus groups (ask any Georgetown student what they're involved in on-campus and you'll get a list of at least 4 clubs and/or a sports team). The campus groups are often the ones hosting the parties, but at the same time, they give you a chance to know guys and girls pretty well through daytime activities. So, on one hand, the party scene is pretty large and relaxed, so hookups happen often. On another hand, couples are not uncommon or actively discouraged on campus. And on yet another hand, you'll find that most of the Georgetown populace have friends of the other gender without difficulty.

Note: Freshman boy syndrome is present (the theory is that girls date up the ranks, leaving freshman guys the least desirable species on campus), but they are not actively excluded from the party scene.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: It might just be me, but I think girls at Georgetown are generally more attractive than guys. There's definitely a hook-up culture at Georgetown, but there's also a small, strong group of religious kids. Also, kids are preppy dressers.

Most students agree that the dating scene is pretty informal. Dating is far less common than the ever-popular random hookup, and those who do date are quite often involved in long-term relationships. Most Hoyas are not at a loss when asked to explain this dynamic of frenetic coupling and re-coupling: Quite simply, they point out, Georgetown is full of sexy people. It’s a smörgåsbord of beauty. A very high selection of students would not be out of place in fashion catalogs—and this has only partly to do with their clothing. There is, in fact, a marked and famed difference between the attractiveness of Georgetown students and those of other universities in the area. For what it’s worth, the admissions committee does request that applicants include photographs of themselves when they send in their application.

Word on the street has it that the girls have a reputation for being haughty and hard-to-get, but the word on the street has a funny way of forgetting that this might be because most of the guys have a reputation for thinking about sex, alcohol, sleep, and career opportunities—in that order. The truth is that, in terms of the dating scene, you’re going to get a mix much like the one you’d get anywhere else. It’s hard to put a single label on 6,000 people—that is, when it comes to romantic aspirations. When it comes to physical attractiveness, there’s no problem at all—people at Georgetown are hot.

Social Scene
Georgetown students definitely embody the work hard/play hard mentality. During the week, students study vigorously and focus on their schoolwork, and the social scene is kept pretty quiet. However, the social scene really picks up on the weekends, when several parties are hosted each night. With local parties, clubs, and bars, Georgetown students keep themselves busy all weekend long.
Hookups or Relationships?
Like most universities, large numbers of Georgetown students go out weekend after weekend looking for random hookups and one-night stands. This is especially noticeable among the younger grades, when the new college student feels the need to live up to college stereotypes. However, there are sizable groups among the singles' pool with interest in dating; the trick is finding someone else who feels the same.
Dress Code
Georgetown students have the awful reputation of being typical preppy college students-clones wearing flipped collars and Rainbow flip-flops. However, in recent years, students have ventured away from this image toward more unique and fashion-forward styles. Guys are still often seen around campus in polo shirts and Madras plaid shorts, yet more guys are beginning to wear more casual jeans and T-shirts. Girls' clothing has much more variety; girls are now seen wearing more chic clothes like skinny jeans and a flowy top than the typical preppy attire. Almost everyone wears sandals or UGG boots.
