There seems to be some tension between guys and girls at Samford. As stated in the "Hookups or Relationships?" section, many people expect to find their wife or husband at Samford, and this may explain why guys are often shy and reserved around girls. Not every Samford boy is like this, of course, and the really fun ones are comfortable with just being friends. These are the ones who hang out in groups from various walks of life, not just the pretty blonde girls.  

Sometimes, it seems that guys can afford to be jerks because there are plenty of other girls they could flirt with, thanks to the vast majority of girls on campus. They often act conceited because they know they can always find a date. Girls tend to swarm around the good-looking guys, feeding their already inflated egos. Samford needs more boys who are down-to-earth and willing to be friends with girls—no strings attached.

Social Scene
It is usually easy to make friends at Samford, and groups of guys and girls can frequently be found chilling on the Quad. Of course, having an extroverted personality definitely helps people meet others, but sometimes one encounters an acquaintance who simply is uninterested in making more friends. Most everyone is friendly to your face, but you find out who your real friends are if they text you back and make an effort to see you more often than a quick "hello" between classes.
Hookups or Relationships?
Unfortunately, a lot of people (especially girls) go to Samford in the hopes of finding their future spouse. This can take a painful toll on their emotions if they date a lot of people in their search for Mr. Right. Many people do date and end up with fianc├ęs before graduation, but several relationships are strictly casual and evaporate over time.
Dress Code
There is no dress code at Samford, but the Southern Baptist mentality prompts many girls to wear dresses often and look nice even when they have no plans after classes. Others simply put on comfortable clothes regardless of what people think of them. Guys usually dress athletically, unless they're in a fraternity, in which case they occasionally wear nice suits and ties.
Did You Know?
Greek life's semi-formals and formals are great opportunities to have fun with friends of the opposite gender.
