4 College Student

Guys & Girls: People at OU are all over the board. You've got everyone from your frat bros to your hipsters, but in general everyone is extremely friendly and looking to meet new people at every opportunity.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: I feel like the typical average looks for guys are not that great, but the girls are better and their interests basically include partying. They dress casual for the most part.

2 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The guys and girls here are on the upper side of the attractive scale. There are alot of good looking people here. Although 90% of them lack common sense and personality, they make up for it in looks. There is a very wide diversity in dress style. The guys usually wear athletic wear, while girls are very fashionable. Everyone on campus parties. That's all they live for.

Many students' friends have been in awe of the amount of attractive people attending Ohio University. Students from other campuses have been known to shout out in bars, "Everyone here is hot!" and it's certainly not an alcohol-induced statement. There are very attractive people at this school, and to make it even better, people are generally really friendly, outgoing, and relationship-worthy. While a fair share of jerks are thrown into the mix, students agree that both sexes are cool and even game for a serious relationship. Certainly alcohol can act as both a fuel for the stereotypical college hookup and a propellant of machoism in some guys.

It's not hard to meet people at OU on a friendly or romantic level, as long as you do your part as well. In general, OU students are accepting, friendly, and easy to get along with. The overall happiness of the students is one of the best things about OU-few people leave without a handful of best friends they've had since their freshman or sophomore years (and maybe even a significant other). Just keep in mind that whatever kind of relationship you may be after, it is, like in any other place, a two-way street.

Social Scene
Students at OU are definitely outgoing and love to party. Cheap beer usually serves as a highlight of social gatherings; and though OU has since dropped from Playboy's list of top party schools, you wouldn't know it from being on campus on a Friday night. The main party streets (Court, Congress, Mill, Palmer) are packed, as well as the bars. But, even if partying isn't your thing, there are always people who share your interests-there's even a group of girls who meet at a coffeehouse to knit! It appears that no one has a hard time finding his or her niche at OU; one just has to take the initiative and seek it out.
Hookups or Relationships?
Depending on whom you ask, both hookups and relationships seem to rule the dating scene. While there are tons of happy couples holding hands and strolling down Court Street, there is also an equal amount of students on the hook-up prowl, which is obvious from the number of people who routinely take the dreaded "walk of shame" on Sunday mornings.
Best Places to Meet Guys/Girls
Bars and parties are the top places to meet hotties, but classes and even working out in the Ping can prove to be a great way to meet someone.
Dress Code
When it comes to dressing at OU, anything goes. Preppy, trendy, skater, and Goth looks can all be seen while walking down Court Street, as well as the occasional mohawk and guy wearing a skirt. While the last two examples are somewhat few and far between, it's safe to say that students feel free to express themselves on campus by wearing anything and everything.
