Like it or not, Luther is the only place within about 30 miles to meet a large collection of 18- to 22-year-olds, so what you see is what you get. Then again, what most people see is the opportunity to find a person to date, not a face or a body. Most students will not have a made-up look every day and prefer to be comfortable and natural with who they are. Sleep and free time definitely come before primping for class for nearly all students. Living this simpler lifestyle might make you think that Luther students don’t care about their looks, but that all changes on going-out nights. There are plenty of beautiful people on campus, but most Luther students aren’t as concerned about their looks or those of others as much as they are about matching interests. As said before, those with similarities tend to hang out together and date each other, which isn’t that bad. With all the different types of people at Luther, someone is bound to catch your eye or vice versa.
In reality, Luther College seems to be an average collection of college students, and they look how young people are supposed to look. All fashions, lifestyles, and partner aspirations are welcome here. More importantly, they act how young people are supposed to act, and deeper connections are made. Most students on campus, when asked why they’re with their partner, will talk about how much they connect, rather than how hot the person is. That’s a standard that anyone can live with.
