4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Due to the diversity of the campus, the guys and girls at UCLA come from all backgrounds, whether ethnically, religiously, or by sexual orientation. There is a need to present oneself nicely in public, so a good majority of students are well-dressed in creative, colorful clothing, accessories, and boots. Social life is strongly encouraged on campus, as many students are involved in more than one club. Friendships are well-sought after; people do activities together, whether working out at the gym, eating together, or participating in other socials. There are romantic relationships, but not everyone is committed.

Guys & Girls: This is a somewhat inappropriate way to judge a school and honestly it is not my job to judge others.

Despite rumors of superficialness and the proximity of Hollywood, guys and girls at UCLA are a down-to-earth and diverse bunch. There really is no average Bruin—students encompass a range of backgrounds, and most want to learn about each others'. Though separation between larger social cliques like the Greek system or minority groups is common, spontaneous chit-chat and phone number exchanges between guys and girls occur often. There are more attractive girls than guys at UCLA, but nobody can really complain due to the sheer number of romantic interests at a school with 25,000 undergrads. 

Being in Southern California certainly boosts UCLA’s grades for hotness. Students take care of themselves and are always tan and groomed. The gym is the place to see and be seen—Bruins of both sexes don't mess around when it comes to treadmills. When guy-to-girl interaction goes beyond the ever-prominent party hookup, it's usually in the form of an LA café date or Westwood movie outing. Many students are eager to enter relationships, and many do.

Social Scene
Although UCLA prides itself on its diversity and social students, it should be noted that students are really only outgoing within their respective groupings-social circle, major, or Greek house. However, courtesy and general friendliness are traits of almost all Bruins.
Hookups or Relationships?
At a school this big, it's not hard to find someone with the same romantic goals as yours, and you can find both the carousing hook-up seekers and serious mate-finders here. Plenty of students merely hook up on weekends, while others settle down into quite serious relationships, usually with fellow Bruins and occasionally with significant others from neighboring schools.
Dress Code
The sizzling California sunshine and mild winters call for casual clothes to class. T-shirts, flip-flops, jeans, and workout gear are the norm-anything more might get stares. However, even though the red carpet is a few miles down Sunset, UCLA students sometimes dress like stars to go out. Guys don jeans and nice shirts, while girls rock heels, designer tops, and mini (we're talking mini) skirts. However, this is SoCal and casualness is always accepted-nobody's snubbed for their attire.
