5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Most people on campus are moderately to very attractive. Some girls are very stuck up, not that guys aren't its just less common.

Most students dress preppy/fratty in very expensive outfits (barbour jackets and such)

Relationships are somewhat common on campus but the trend is definitely just casual hookups over commitment.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: 75-80% of students look, dress, and act the same. There is an average number of relationships.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: I am a guy and I can honestly say that I have not been paying to much attention to the guys on campus. But for the most part, they are above average to average. The women on the other hand are mostly between 4-6 with some 8 and 9's throne in. You might not find your dream girl there but you will rarely sleep alone. As far as attitudes are concerned, one acronym comes to mind, WASP; rich white kids that feel entitled and over privileged. Of course thats not everyone and the environment seems to be changing.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Everyones very nice and fun to be around.

3 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: Girls are usually very pretty: dress well and wear lots of makeup- especially if they are in a sorority. Of course there are always exceptions to the generalization. Guys on average dress pretty preppy or very sporty, especially if they are in frats.

The typical guy on campus wears fashionable, name brand clothing, is friendly, vaguely attractive, and hangs out at the Greek houses on weekends. The typical girl is much the same. Since it is a liberal arts school, there are relatively few nerdy types on campus, generally restricted only to closet Star Wars fans and the odd live-action role player in the English department.

While you will find a diverse assortment of guys and girls, as far as hair color or height goes, that's about where it ends. Most people tend to have the same economic and political status-the variance within these categories being quite small. There are very few extremist viewpoints on either side of the political spectrum and, for the most part, both the guys and girls at Gettysburg come fairly close to being, get this, "normal."

Social Scene

Hookups or Relationships?
Hookups! While some of the students at Gettysburg do meet that special someone and settle down, the majority of students feel that these four years are a time for fun and experimentation. They prefer to play the field and sample the student body by casual dating and weekend hookups.
Best Places to Meet Guys/Girls
Most students will tell you that social functions such as fraternity or off-campus parties are generally the best place to meet guys or girls, but there really is no bad place at Gettysburg. Parties offer the best chance to meet someone due to the sheer enormity of sample size, but finding someone in classes and clubs probably will result in a more meaningful relationship on campus.
Dress Code
Pink polo shirts (collar popped) compete with denim skirts to win the title of "Most Common Pieces of Clothing" at Gettysburg College. While it is unclear whether the sporting of flip-flops in February should be considered an example of admirable or foolhardy devotion to the sacrament of fashion, students nonetheless wear them out in full force. While Gettysburg students may display some individual style tendencies, particularly during their freshman year, they will soon begin to conform to the Gettysburg . The transition typically begins from the ground up, with flip flops replacing sneakers or shoes in all but the most dire of weather, and then moving steadily upwards, culminating on top of the head with hair ribbons for girls and sunglasses carefully perched atop the forehead for guys.
