Guys & Girls: Everyone dresses casually and could care less about anything but the Ducks, partying, and trying to get ahead.

Guys & Girls: Everyone looks very hipsterish. We all get along quite well, everyone is always hanging out and going to parties and such.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Oregon is known as having the best track team in the nation and the campus reflects it. Many students are athletic and fitness is a big push. Sporty is the way to go. There are people of all different varieties so finding and meeting new people who share the same interests as you is not very hard to find.

Guys & Girls: People at school are okay. It can be kinda hard to get to know someone at first, but I've never been great at that so it could just be my own problem.

While the University of Oregon certainly isn't Miami Beach, it's not Fargo either. Instead, what you'll find is a happy medium in terms of the eligible student body. Students all agree that spring term is the best time in Eugene, when you can see what's been hiding under all the clothes after a cold winter. Men generally aren't disappointed with the quality of women, whereas ladies offer mixed views of who's hot and who's not.

The biggest criticism between sexes at UO is a lack of style or effort put into appearance. However, some people like that designer clothes and styles aren't main priority. Overall, the people here are real. With 20,000 students you're bound to find someone you don't mind looking at. The key is to keep up with the social scene and meet as many people as possible. Given such a large student body and variety of people, you've got a good chance of finding someone to stay with you during, or even after, your college years. There is really somebody for everyone.

Social Scene
The social scene at the University is open to everything from coffee shops to bars to the classroom itself. Students at the UO tend to be outgoing and approachable. House parties are big at UO because of the more lax and easy-going vibe of the student body. Once you turn 21, the bar scene is fun, too, but the house parties are always a good alternative.
Hookups or Relationships?
Oregon seems to go through phases when it comes to the dating scene. For one term, everyone will be involved in relationships; the next, the selection is as open as a buffet at Las Vegas. Serious relationships seem to be most prominent at UO, but hookups do occur (most often in the Greek system and the bar scene).
Best Places to Meet Guys/Girls
For freshman, the dorms provide a great opportunity to live in close proximity to members of the opposite sex. Many dorm friendships have the opportunity to become something more. For the upperclassmen, the hot spots of Taylor's and Rennie's off campus never seem to fail for meeting members of the opposite sex. Outside of the classroom, coffeeshops also provide the chance for social interaction in a comfortable atmosphere. The University is swarming with nearly 20,000 students, so opportunities to meet your next boyfriend or girlfriend are never too far away.
Dress Code
Fashion at the University of Oregon ranges from students wearing business attire to people walking around without shoes. Whether you wear three-piece suits every day or dress like carefree hippie, you'll be accepted around Eugene. In terms of going out, the same applies. Some girls will wear jeans and a sweatshirt, while others will wear a nice dress and heels. However, the overall population does seem to dress more casually, especially due to the weather.
