Swarthmore students are not the most attractive students in the country, but there are a number of gems in the pile of stones. Although Swarthmore does not have as attractive of a student population as, say, Arizona State does, there is somebody for everyone on campus if you are looking for a relationship or just a one-night stand. Even if you are used to dating hot models, maybe it is time to put on "Swat Goggles" and try to find beauty in people for things other than their looks. It’s not that Swatties are downright ugly, but their general apathy toward outward appearance sometimes makes them seem that way. However, there are some who claim that Swarthmore, otherwise known as the “Quaker Matchbox,” can be the perfect place to meet your better half.
Contrary to public stereotypes, students are not sex-starved on campus. If hooking up is your thing, Swarthmore could be just the place for you. Most of the student body is unattached, and most students have liberal attitudes toward casual sex and hooking up. Just be warned: Despite Swarthmore’s free-love attitude, once you have hooked up, most of the campus will know by 11 a.m. the next morning.
