If you called the UCI student body the “ethnic tossed salad” in the meal of attraction, not everyone would want to take a bite. This is probably due to the lack of variety within the student body. Students still give their peers overall warm reviews of being worth a second glance or two; students who aren’t usually attracted to people of the “Asian Persuasion” find themselves double glancing, too. Some girls would say that the Asian guys here are mostly viewed as the strong, silent type, while the Caucasian guys are generally thought to be of the surfer or skater style.
Luckily for the guys, students generally agree that the girls at UCI are hotter, on average, than the guys. Many guys here are labeled “Irvine Cute,” meaning that they are considered good looking because they go to UCI, but if they went to another school in the So Cal area, then they would be considered middle of the pack or maybe even lower. For the gals, this generally means that they’re probably going to actually have to look for love that’s beyond skin deep—which, as ghastly as that might seem from a Southern Californian’s point of view, isn’t all that difficult.
