3 College Freshman

1 person found this useful Report
4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There are a lot of girls. A lot of the guys are gay. Everyone gets along.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Most everyone is in shape so it gives the eye a little something to stare at if you need a distraction. International students especially the guys dress REALLY well.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Students are all so different at St. Edward's, so stereotypes don't really exist. A lot of people party here though- almost every guy I've met parties here, and for the people that frequently party, it seems that partying is all they really care about.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There is a significant number of attractive men and women on campus. The "stereotypes" range from religious, judgmental individuals to the group of hipsters, and to the flamboyant homosexual men that prance around with boas on. Our school has a large LGBT community, as well. We have earned the nickname "the closet on the hill". However, don't be alarmed that is still the minority. There are plenty of attractive heterosexual people to choose from. Also, we have a huge number of international students, so that is always an option, if you're into that.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Despite St. Edward's status as a relatively small school, the student body is rather diverse. However, based on looks alone, there are a few stereotypes that people tend to fall into—there are a lot of preppy guys, hipsters, foreign guys in button-ups, and the archetypal jock and nerdy types. But, most of the guys here assimilate into the crowd pretty easily with the typical college student look of a T-shirt (usually blue, grey, or brown), jeans, and some nondescript tennis shoes or flip-flops. Girls on campus generally fall into two categories: those who wear Nike gym shorts to class, and those who look like they shop at Urban Outfitters. Overall, though, it's a pretty attractive campus.

The school isn't so small that everyone knows one another well, but it is small enough for students to recognize almost everyone after a semester or two. So, if someone talks about you to a friend who's never met you, if their descriptive powers are honed well enough, there's a pretty good chance the other person will figure out who you are almost immediately. Promiscuity or chastity depends entirely on one's social group and beliefs, but the school's overall atmosphere is surprisingly liberal.

Social Scene
Students are generally very sociable, to the point where freshmen and transfer students are surprised at everyone's friendliness. As the semesters progress, the climate can get a little cliquey, but most people here are still kind and open.
Hookups or Relationships?
Both casual and serious relationships thrive here, but it would probably be awkward to have a bad break-up with a fellow student because not running into them on campus would be a near impossibility.
Dress Code
There are quite a few fashion plates at St. Ed's, but generally speaking, the dress code is very casual, sometimes inappropriately so. Most students dress strictly for comfort, and athletes are known to wear their workout gear all day.
