4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The university is so enormous that honestly we have so much diversification that we cover pretty much every type of student look, interest, dress code, social life, and relationship status. This is one of the reasons I actually love OSU because there are so many different types of people and uniqueness is omnipresent.

Guys & Girls: The girls are OSU (based on what I see on a daily basis) are mainly concerned about materialistic things. Relationships on campus can vary. I have seen many people who want to have one night stands, while others are looking for a serious relationships.

A campus as large as OSU's tends to make one optimistic in regards to finding someone attractive. Some students, of course, are taken, but there is also a large majority of available coeds who are out in search of a good time. Guys and girls alike feel that there is enough variety to find any type of relationship you're searching for. No matter what your style is, students agree that you can probably find your type somewhere on campus. It doesn't hurt that there are some 50,000 other people around the city, either.

Some students could care less about the selection-any willing partner will do. If this is the case, you're in good shape because of the sheer amount of people at OSU. If you are more selective, there will still be plenty who fit your profile. The feeling around campus is pretty upbeat, and there are many places to go searching for a specific type of girl or guy. Just look around you: classrooms and residence halls are a great place to meet people. It's also a good idea to go around town and hit the different scenes, because there is a lot of variety out there. Study dates are a great way to get to know someone in class a little better. On sunny days, put on your best clothes and take a stroll around campus. One piece of advice, guys: if you're around the Oval on a warm, sunny day, bring sunglasses; or at least, remember to blink once in awhile!

Hookups or Relationships?
Most women are already taken, but there is also a large group of girls who are only out to have fun and think nothing more of it. There are also plenty of single guys around, looking for everything from hookups to long-term relationships. There is no real trend toward either end of the spectrum.
Best Places to Meet Guys/Girls
Bars are great places to meet up with people and have a friendly chat. Believe it or not, the library is also a great place to hang out with romantic interests. If the weather is nice, there is no place better than the Oval. Don't be afraid to wander the halls of your dorm, either. The best time to find that special person is during the springtime. The flowers are blooming, the sun is shining, the campus looks beautiful, and lots of skin is shown. Lots of people hook up in the spring, only to have the relationship fall apart during the long summer break. Keep your chin up, and take advantage of the warm weather when you come back for fall quarter. During spring quarter, date people who live on North Campus or in the Towers-they have air-conditioning!
Dress Code
Students dress in all kinds of styles. You have emo, preppy, conservative, punk, hip hop, and many others. The prevailing color, however, is red. Even the homeless people around campus wear Ohio State clothing. When it's cold, though, not many people worry about making a fashion statement. During the spring is when you see who has style and who does not
