The University of Iowa has many attractive members of both sexes. Being a major university and having a large student body gives undergraduates plenty of people to meet and learn about. Guys around campus come off as a little defensive—it seems like they are trying to be better than any other guy they know. The girls around campus can be shy, but once you start talking to them, they open up. It seems like a strong majority of the campus is looking for a special person, either for a night or for a long-term relationship.
With so many people at UI, it is in your best interest to talk to many different people. If you are looking to meet someone, the best option is the bar scene—most people head there to meet others, and alcohol always helps loosen things up. When in doubt, it’s best to break the ice—chances are, the other person is going to be just as open to conversation as you are.
