3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There are some great people here. And then there are some terrible people here.

5 College Junior

Guys & Girls: There is a large community of people here. Both guys and girls, it is not unpopular to hear about two people meeting here and eventually ending up together.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Everyone is different which gives the school that great diversity feel. There is always some one willing to help which is also awesome.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: I haven't been in any relationships at school yet myself, but I've seen and know MANY couples who both go here, one goes/one goes somewhere close by and one person goes here/other person goes somewhere far away.

2 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: People are not very accepting. You can find really nice people, but there are a lot of obnoxious, mean people here who think they're above everyone else.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

There is a variety of different types of guys and girls on campus, and there is most likely someone for everyone. The students here all have different personalities, so they are able to attract attention from the opposite sex all of the time. The guys and girls are usually seen in groups of their friends, but many couples are often seen on campus, as well.

It is not as obvious to spot students who are hooking up. Students who are hooking up are not as open as students in relationships because they tend to be private about it, and usually only their friends know. There is no hidden affection for the couples, though—several duos can usually be seen around campus participating in PDAs (public displays of affection). Overall, University of Hartford students are not afraid to interact with one another, whether in class or in the dorms, so dating is not an issue here.

Social Scene
There is tons of social interaction at the University. In fact, it is sometimes hard to find a quiet spot because there is so much socializing going on. Students like to socialize in the student lounge during breaks between classes and in the dining areas. Friends often spend time in dorm rooms, where they hang out, relax, or study.
Hookups or Relationships?
There are many couples on campus, but there are also students who participate in random hookups. The couples are more prevalent, and while hookups do happen, they are not usually known about unless someone hears gossip or inside information. Couples are more likely to go public with their relationships.
Dress Code
Students here dress very casually for class or just hanging around campus, but when going out or to an event, they tend to glam up. On the weekend, it is not uncommon to see many girls in heels and guys in their best clothing. The students like to look their best when going out because most of the parties are just like fashion shows.
