3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: there are way more girls than guys. Technically it is against school rules to be gay but people are open about it and the school never inforces punishment. I think its just an old rule they've never taken out of the rule book. People over all are super nice at SPU but its easy to feel awkward and lonely if you are more into partying and being a normal teenager. If your looking to find people, guys specifically to hook up with spu is not the place. That being said its a small nice community, great for someone not into big campus life.

Guys & Girls: The male to female ratio is 3:7 so there are not very many guys on campus. Majority are already in relationships but there are some really great guys.

Guys & Girls: The typical student here at SPU is pretty hipster. That being said there are a lot of very wealthy kids here who dont wear just sweats to class. The ratio of girls to guys here is 70:30 so when people are all hanging out its like the girls are vying so hard for any guys attention.

Guys & Girls: Everyone is super friendly! There are more girls than boys, but most of the student population is above average looks wise and in smarts. SPU is a pretty casual school with love of clubs and student organizations.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

There's a saying at SPU, and it goes like this: "The odds are good, but the goods are odd." This refers to the sex ratio, which is roughly three women to every one man. Stated simply, men are a novelty. They get way more attention than is due to them, and many of them get awarded mini-celebrity status. There is an event put on in the dorms called "Roomies," and it requires that students find a date for their roommate and plan for the roommate and date to do something fun like attend a Mariners game or go to a corn maze. Naturally, if you're the roommate, you pay for both you and your date. Some girls don't ever get asked to go to a "Roomies" date event, but most guys on campus will go to several a quarter.

There are weird social dynamics on campus, where girls start to compete for guys and guys become very inactive in the initial dating process, instead opting to sit back and let girls fight it out. Then, once a girl has showcased herself convincingly enough, a guy will suddenly decide to be active and begin his "pursuit." Both parties will adopt a false view that the guy in the scenario really went out on a limb and worked hard to win the girl's heart. Such are the dilemmas of dating at Seattle Pacific, which is why dating outside the University is very strongly encouraged, unless you want to get married immediately following graduation and live in a house with a picket fence.

Facts & Statistics

Male Undergrads

Birth Control Available?
No
Considering premarital sex is frowned upon, birth control is not available.
Social Scene
There are lots of opportunities to meet new guys and girls, particularly while living in the dorms. Every floor has a corresponding brother/sister floor, with which they plan activities, raids, or other events. Also, almost every quarter a floor will host an event called "Roomies," where students are responsible for finding their roommate a date for a planned event.
Hookups or Relationships?
"Ring by spring" is an overused phrase at Seattle Pacific. Many of the students are looking for future spouses and take dating very seriously, often ending up engaged before they graduate.
Dress Code
Seattle Pacific girls have a habit of coming to class in their sweatpants, as if they just didn't have time to put anything else on. This is funny, considering their makeup is flawless and their hair is either curled or straightened. North Face fleeces are all the rage, for both sexes.
