Guys & Girls: People here are super normal. I love it. People are open minded and work hard but also down to have fun on the weekends. You can meet just about anybody. That's the beauty of a large school.

With 20,000-plus students in attendance at Mizzou, it is not very difficult to find "Mr./Ms. Right" or "Mr./Ms. Right Now." The nightlife at Mizzou offers plenty of opportunities to hook up, and the various classes with people of the same major offer opportunities to find that perfect someone. The guy-to-girl ratio is in favor of the guys at the bars and in favor of the girls when it comes to house parties.

You would think that students at Mizzou are very sexually promiscuous, but most are just trying to find that someone to fall in love with. The average student at MU is a hardworking, party-oriented, friendly, and fun person.

Social Scene
Mizzou's campus provides plenty of opportunities to be social. Residence halls are the perfect place to start for freshmen. Most students party it up Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and sometimes even Sunday nights. The local bars offer plenty of drink specials to get people together.
Hookups or Relationships?
Many people believe that college is mainly for hookups and one-night stands. There are plenty of opportunities for those at bars and house parties. Others, more serious people, believe that they will find their soul mate while spending four years studying. Then, there are the people who are in the middle, who just happen to find the person they want to spend the rest of their lives with. All categories are very prominent at Mizzou; it just depends on the places one frequents.
Dress Code
To house parties, students wear whatever the theme is or just casual clothing. Some bars and clubs have a strict dress code. For those places, guys should wear dress shirts and nice jeans or khakis. Girls should stick to dressy shirts, nice jeans, and high heels. Most girls wear very short skirts and very high heels, basically very little clothing. So anything between those two extremes will do just fine.
