5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Everybody basically meets each other before school even starts like on Facebook so they interact well with one another.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Guys and girls are pretty much the same here - overall smart and cute. But you can't be superficial about looks around here, because the campus is so small and there's not a lot to choose from. There are a lot of athletes, both male and female. The only guys I've met who are jerks are the ones who are superficial about what girls look like - they want to find models in a sea of regular girls. The girls are more into hooking up. Some are only here for relationships.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: While the school predominantly has African American and Non-Hispanic Whites, there all different types of students at McKendree. Many attractive, some not so attractive, and mostly everyone has a great attitude. It is fairly easy to make friends at the school since people are nice for the most part. the school really makes an effort to help you find your place.

The average McKendree student dresses in a comfortable manner, some more stylish or fashionable than others. Students tend to have their group of friends they really click with and learn who their true friends are sooner rather than later. Students relate to each other through personal interests, things they have in common, shared experiences, and more.

Through joining activities, students can make some great friends for life. There are a few more guys than girls around McKendree, which may make it more difficult for women to get to know men versus men maybe having a little bit of an easier time getting to know some women around campus. There is a wide range of students; some may be more promiscuous and liberal in ways than others, in how they choose to dress or act around other students.

Use your best judgement and choose your friends wisely. There are some people in serious relationships around campus, which is good to an extent.
