The guys and girls at Penn State Altoona are from all walks of life. The guys range from real-life farm boys to metropolitan city dwellers. Some guys take full advantage of the gym on campus, and then there are the guys who really focus on working out their brains—they are just waiting to have an intelligent conversation about any subject above reality television. The guys vary in looks but most are fairly well groomed and put together, and it seems like the most attractive men become attractive through their involvement in activities around campus. Just like in high school, the tendency to try and impress the ladies is still apparent in college guys, but the mindset is not as juvenile (for most, at least).
The girls at Penn State Altoona come from all over the country and globe. There are classy women, country girls, Southern belles, Indian beauties, and down-to-earth girls who are all intellectuals at their core. Many of the ladies here take good care of themselves, and although the Freshmen 15 or Sophomore 20 catches up with some, all are more than just looks. There are very few girls here looking to find a husband so they never have to work. Many people find relationships in college that last them their whole lives, but that is not the purpose of college. Do not become distracted by the guys and girls that surround you, which is very easy to do at Penn State Altoona. Focus is very necessary.
