5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: MSU has a large variety of style, and most people dress and act the way they want, regardless of what others think. People follow their interests and dreams with what they are great at, and there is a lot less judging from peers then I had expected going into school.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Guys and Girls do get along on campus and there are plenty of activities for both to actively participate in.

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Why is this even a question? MSU is very diverse. There are students of all looks, personalities, abilities, attitudes, and more. If you are choosing your school based on how people look and act, you have a lot to learn before you are a mature adult.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: I love the females on campus! Lol, but for real, I am very glad MSU has the female studnet body that it has, the women are beautiful. Also, everyone is so nice. It shouldn't be hard to find someone to connect to in terms of relationships, or for friends, whatever you're looking for. If you want to go to a school with good looking, nice women, go to state. I can't speak for the guys, I think they're attractive... I don't really pay attention.

5 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Most people on Michigan State's campus are very friendly, welcoming and fun. The social life at MSU is great, but most individuals take school work very seriously-it's the best of both worlds!

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Rachel McElroy
View all previous student authors

The saying "there are always plenty of fish in the sea" describes the MSU dating pool perfectly. With nearly 46,000 students of different backgrounds, MSU is an ocean of single students looking for a relationship or a hookup. Most students agree that some of the most attractive members of either sex attend MSU, and with the prominent bar and party scene off campus, there are plenty of opportunities to meet someone interesting. Be warned, however—a large student population alone doesn’t mean everyone is going to be single, interested, or even friendly.

How you approach the MSU dating scene depends on whether you are just looking to meet new people or if you are ready for a committed relationship. This is most likely going to be the only time in your life that you are surrounded by such a large number of eligible people in your age bracket. This is the time to figure out what you like, what you don’t, what kinds of people you are attracted to, and whom you cannot stand being with. No matter what your sex or sexual preference, you will likely find a connection with at least one other person during your time at MSU.
