It becomes clear soon after you arrive at Seattle University how far the gender balance is tilted towards the female population. This can be a definite advantage for the straight male population, but don’t think that this means it’s a “guy’s choice” situation when it comes to looking for a date. This initially small male population, combined with the presence of a sizeable gay male population, has led a number of women to look off campus for potential dates everywhere from the University of Washington to local clubs and bars. However, many people, regardless of gender, still look for dates on campus, and there are available men and women for people of all personality types and orientations.
The types of people you have to choose from vary greatly, from the more laid-back and introverted, who like to just hang out in the Quad, to the outgoing and active who love a good game of Frisbee on the Green. You can meet people all over campus, though the Student Center, not really a center of life on campus, is probably one of the simplest places, if only because it houses C-Street, the Bistro, and any number of offices of various student groups. Another popular option is actually class itself, though you’ll always want to be careful there because if something were to go sour, you would be stuck with them for the rest of the quarter. Most students who are interested in pursuing something further tend to take it off campus, either to one of the many coffee shops within walking distance of school or one of the local bars. While people tend to favor more committed relationships at Seattle U, if you are looking just for a more casual arrangement, you can pursue that as well. There are options for everyone here.
