3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There aren't enough girls at school, and I'd like more potential social avenues, especially as a commuter.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There are a lot more guys that go to Behrend than girls, about a 3:1 guy-to-girl ratio. Everyone somehow seems to find their place though.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The ratio of guys to girls is way too high. More girls need to attend Behrend.

3 College Student

Guys & Girls: Well, the ratio for boys and girls in this school is 6:1, so there are plenty of guys who are usually always involved in some sort of sport or playing videogames. Typical dress for a guy; jeans and flannel or hoodie. For girls; it varies. Some girls dress nice everyday, some look like they rolled out of bed and some are somewhere inbetween. Relationships are always coming up on campus. Many people came here in a relationship, either with the significant other or having them at a different school. Interests; partying, movies, student life, videogames; for both boys and girls.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: The guys on campus range from city boys to country boy, while you'll find the same for the ladies. Due to the snow, a lot of the dress is more of thick sweaters and jackets with thick pants (such as sweats or jeans). The hat fashion is really fun and the gloves are a good topic to talk about; let's not even talk about all the scarves that we where. Socially, you will find yourself in some sort of club or group that will give you activities to do and on top of that you will have a great time with friends that you meet outside of groups or clubs. Relationships happen all the time because of the cold and the male to female ratio; you find people getting into relationships all the time.

Social Scene
The students here are fairly outgoing. Most of the parties happen at the off-campus University Gates Apartments (UGates), and while walking around there, you are likely to get invited into someone's apartment. Parties also happen at SKN or off-campus houses. Behrend students are generally very friendly and have the mentality of "the more the merrier."
Hookups or Relationships?
You will see your share of hookups and relationships. There are probably more hookups than relationships overall, but there are plenty of people in steady relationships, as well. The guy to girl ratio is about 3:1, so girls have a lot more to choose from.
Dress Code
During the day, do not look for anyone to be particularly dressed up. Both girls and guys wear jeans, sweatpants, and hoodies to class. You will not find a lot of people who like to wear designer clothes-people are definitely more concerned with comfort when it comes to going to class. When going out, girls will put on a nice top and a skirt or dress if they want to get fancy. Overall, students here like to look nice when they go out, but what they wear to class is another story.
