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.
