3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: The typical student at Sam Houston is here to learn, they really are not intered in how others dress to go to class. Individuals social life usually revolves around thei inner circle of friends. Many house parties are had and lots of drinking goes into the average students weekly activity. I think that having a relationship while in college is hard for the average student, your stress level is already on overdrive and putting a significant other into the mix can make it more difficult. Of course that does not stop them all from trying.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: I don't really look for anyone in school. However, everyone seems fairly clean by appearance.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: I don't really pay attention to other peoples relationships but I would say that guys and girls have several way of meeting each other. Campus is big . A big campus comes with different people and different styles. Everyone is dressed based on their personality.

The average student at Sam Houston State is very easygoing and laid-back, which may be attributed to the slow-moving, not-in-a-hurry, small-town feel here. Students are usually dressed casually, even when going out or at other seemingly dressy occasions. This seems to make it easier to talk to members of the opposite sex because everyone looks approachable and personable.

Although there is so much diversity on campus, students are able to come together and relate to one another because they are all members of the Sam Houston community. The girl-to-guy ratio is pretty even, with ladies outnumbering guys three to two. This doesn’t affect the dating scene, as many students, both guys and girls, casually date on campus. The types of relationships on campus range from casual dating to serious relationships, but either way, guys and girls at SHSU like to have fun. While some students are more reserved, most tend to date and hook up often at SHSU. There are plenty of places both on and off campus for guys and girls to mingle and socialize.
