UNCW is home to a lot of attractive people. The girl-to-guy ratio is reflective of most universities in the United States, with more girls than guys; UNCW has represented a ratio of 60:40, but growth toward a more even balance of numbers has been noticed recently, so who knows what UNCW will look like in the next few years. A lot of students are physically fit. They enjoy exercising and spending time outside, so students are in shape and have a sun-kissed glow most of the year. However, UNCW's large variety of majors and academic interests makes for a variety of student styles, as well. There are students who are hipsters, skaters, gamers, preps, and a lot that are an eclectic mixture of a lot of styles.
Students relate to each other because everyone is welcoming, open-minded, and inviting. The laid-back environment makes for strong friendships and relationships because it's in the students' nature to be open and not shut anyone out—acceptance is a given at UNCW. So, along those lines, boy-girl romantic relationships on campus come in all varieties. There are students who are just going to be more carefree and anti-monogamy, but there's just as many—if not more—who are open to getting into a relationship. Students are definitely not reserved at UNCW, and they're ready for anything and everything!
