4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Why wasn't there a section rating the guys? That seems sexist. There's a lot of people at IU and lots of diversity, you are bound to find people that you like and are attractive.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Most students are into drinking and partying, which is something I'm not into. Greek life is huge on campus, which corresponds with the drinking and partying. While I'm sure there are alternative activities for students who don't wish to drink or party in this way, I feel like it is difficult to find other people who feel the same way, as the majority of the student body seems to be really into this way of life.

Guys & Girls: There are many different types of girls because the school is so big!

2 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The guys here really aren't all that attractive. You go to the gym and see almost no one that jumps out as attractive - just more cookie cutter guys straight out of high school. Nothing special. Girls are the same, but tend to try and overcompensate with make-up or flashy clothes, which is just plain tacky.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Girls are awesome here at IU. Purdue take in all the girls we don't need.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

At IU, the guys come from all over the country, but there are a lot of Midwestern boys with Midwestern attitudes; the phrase "I grew up on a farm" is not exactly rare, and many of these boys adhere strongly to their principles, like family values and intense work ethic. Of course, Indiana boys are not all IU has to offer. We've got hot East Coast guys, cool West Coast guys, and every kind of guy in between. The reputation of certain programs, like the music school and the Kelley school of business, draw students from around the globe. Added bonus: no matter what background they come from, they're mostly good-looking.

Girls at IU are of the same mold as the guys. They outnumber the men by a little bit, but come from the same range of places and have the same range of lifestyles. The women here can teach you how to throw a punch, crochet, or solve for x in an equation. Like the boys, they come in all shapes and sizes with their own set of morals and ideals. Also like the boys, girls are generally very, very attractive. Guys and girls both cover the spectrum from conservative to promiscuous, so you can find a casual fling easily-but the serious relationship is prominent. Just want to hook up? With 40,000 kids, you should be able to find a buddy.

Social Scene
For the most part, students at IU are extremely outgoing and friendly. There's the usual mix of shy people and introverts, but making friends is not too challenging for most people. House parties are popular, as is the bar scene, but there are plenty of other ways to meet people on or around campus; you just have to look for them.
Hookups or Relationships?
For the first year or so, many students are relishing their newfound freedoms and finding out who they really are, and hooking up is an inevitable part of this for some. With age comes maturity, though, and you'll find a number of serious relationships between older students. You can find whichever you're looking for; with such a large student population, there's a lot to choose from.
Best Places to Meet Guys/Girls
Clubs, bars, and house parties are great places to make a connection with someone, but if you're interested in finding a person who shares your interests, you may have better luck meeting people in organizations or through classes.
Dress Code
Most students at IU don't put a whole lot of effort into getting ready for class, and sweatpants and hoodies reign supreme, especially for those 8 a.m. lectures. Mostly, IU students go for casual and comfortable, rather than sleek and stylish. Don't be fooled by the sloppy pretense, though; many of those baggy sweatpants are designer. Outside of class, people tend to put a lot more time into their appearance. Girls wear more makeup and trendier clothes, and guys actually shave and use product in their hair if applicable. It wouldn't be completely out of the ordinary to see a hot babe out at the bars and realize hours later that she's also that mousy chick from your biology class.
