College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There's so many different types of guys and girls. Looks, personality, dress, and social life, it would be hard to give them all a general rating.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: I think for the most part we have a good variety of different people and they all bring something to my school.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Everyone is friendly and accepting of each other. Thats what I really like about the students.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: There are a lot of hot guys and girls. Everyone seems to be sexually active, and it seems the majority of students (at least the students living on campus or near campus) drinks and/or smokes. Lots of skateboarding between classes. I've heard riding a bike to class is "uncool" but I don't agree with that nor do I care how others like to transport themselves to where they need to be.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Many students have the newest fashion. The girls have everything Victoria Secret. Many girls have enough money to go to the local stores and shop for new clothes and the mall isn't very far away. The Philly bus on Fridays takes students to Philly so they can go to the bars and clubs and many people go and come back drunk. The students go to the Greek housing to parties every weekend

Rowan’s dating scene is like a Greek tragedy. There is always angst, plenty of tears, and several stops to the nurse for a pill or a shot—and that’s the truth. One thing is certain: there is something for everyone here, and, like the cafeteria, it can turn into a virtual all-you-can-eat buffet. Both genders have their strengths and weaknesses. To find the right kind person, look in the places that interest you, whether it's a club or even the library. Above all else, the most important thing to do is to take it slow—but then, who wants to hear that in college?

The biggest problem with dating on campus is that everyone seems to know everyone else. Facebook has taken away the mystery of new love. Nowadays, students can go online and look up a person they may have talked to on campus to see who he or she really is. The girls at Rowan are generally pretty and do good jobs of making themselves look so; however, there are some who look like dancers in the cast of Michael Jackson’s "Thriller" video. If you are a girl who is considering Rowan, your mystery is your secret weapon. Keep them guessing about you, and it will only make them want you more. If you are a guy who is considering Rowan, slow down in pursuing girls. Rowan girls seem to like guys who don’t need a lot of numbers—sometimes, it only takes one.

Social Scene
The Rowan University social scene is just like one of those Academy Award dramas where you want it to end as soon as it starts. Because Rowan is smack-dab in the heart of Glassboro, otherwise known as "Nowheresville," students tend to create their own social networks through house parties and trips outside of town, which is probably why the Greeks on campus are so prevalent.
Hookups or Relationships?
One word to describe the relationship scene on campus is melancholy. There are some who find the loves of their lives here, but more often than not, most students hook up randomly.
Dress Code
Students wear diverse styles that suit their personalities. There are certainly a few trendsetters, but as with most places in New Jersey, casual is the operative word. Among the girls, leggings and brighter colors seem to be coming back. Influences from the '80s and '90s are heavy among most girls here, with the purposefully sloppy tops and slim jeans. Guys have now adopted the slim jeans look, too, but the jury is out on whether it's a sound fashion choice.
