3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: It's hard when there aren't a ton of students at the school. You pretty much see the same people walking to class everyday.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Everyone is fairly nice and there are a lot of good looking people on campus. Both guys and girls are a little self-involved but it's all about who you meet.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There are more girls than guys at my school

5 College Junior

Guys & Girls: I met my husband here!

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Everyone is pretty attractive. I mostly study at University Place, so there are a lot of older people there. Everyone generally wears jeans and a shirt. Some days they wear sweats, but no one really cares what you wear.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

ISU is a big pond with many diverse fish. Since the students are extremely diverse with different backgrounds, standards, religions, ethnicity, and looks, anybody can find a mate at this school. ISU attracts partiers, studiers, sports players, and church-goers. The gay population on campus is also quite thriving with gay organizations, activities, and a gay bar off campus.

There are drinking fraternities and nondrinking sororities. There was a joke that girls go to BYU of Idaho to get married and guys go to ISU. That pretty much sums it up. People are getting married left and right. This does not mean that you will automatically be sending out wedding invitations as soon as you step on the ISU campus, but it is a great way to find love, probably due to the laid-back community and the lack of things to do. Since there is not much to do anyway, guys and girls tend to get more creative, making things click on a different level.

Social Scene
For many students at ISU, being social is not a problem. If one student talks to another student, the second student will respond positively. Students are just really friendly and earnest to learn about others. There is somewhere for everybody to fit in, no matter what their background. There are just a lot of different social circles that are friendly and open.
Hookups or Relationships?
Dating seems to be a thing of the past for many students on the ISU campus. Everybody has adopted the "hanging out" theory, figuring it is just more comfortable and not as risky. This is not to say that nobody ever gets into a serious relationship and gets married. The initial hookup just usually begins with hanging out instead of a first date.
Best Places to Meet Guys/Girls
The SUB is a popular place for food, which means it is a popular place for students. It is also a convenient spot to meet and hook up, and lunch is just 10 feet away. And believe it or not, the library is also a well-known social scene. Students are hushed time and again for too much talking and socializing and not enough quiet studying. So as a side note, for a good study spot, find a corner, or else somebody will stop to talk to you. The LDS Institute is also a popular hangout and market for guys/girls. This LDS organization hosts luncheons, dances, Reed Gym activities, concerts, and other activities (again, usually with food).
Dress Code
Since it is Idaho, students tend to dress according to the weather. If it's cold, there are a lot of coats. And since the student body has a wide age range, there is a variety of fads dating back to the ‘70s.
