SU is notorious for its good-looking guys and girls, and it's not just a stereotype. The main downfall of having so many attractive people at SU is that the weather causes their good looks to go to waste, buried beneath layers of clothing. It's easy to meet people at Syracuse mainly due to its slightly larger than average student population. This way, you will always be meeting new people while still being able to keep in touch with the objects of last week's affection. Some girls, however, tend to think there are far more guys looking for a casual hookups than long-term relationships.
On the personality scale, however, SU is home to a host of different character traits. Students seem to think that a significant number of egotistical, rich students (both males and females) attend this university. Still, that number is balanced easily by the broad range of other personalities on campus. Here, you can find not just the ostentatious type; you'll find some hippie-type groups, potheads, intellectuals, overachievers, drunks, and athletes. Sound like high school? Well, maybe, but there is far more intermingling between personality types and financial backgrounds. It's relatively close quarters at SU, so this is cause for some unity. Also, you'll meet many good-looking people that span every group and clique in your four years here.
