3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: It is a running town so a lot of students are in very good shape, both guys and girls. A lot of girls wear little to nothing in the spring/summer, and will even sunbathe in the middle of campus. The people on campus are not nice. They are very inconsiderate, rude, and self-centered. A majority of them are self-entitled and they believe that everything should be handed to them on a silver platter. I do not enjoy this type of attitude. Although the campus community itself is accepting of diversity, the people within the community are just equally rude to everyone.

Guys & Girls: Most guys and girls like hang out together or having party together. Many of them like drinking together.

4 College Junior

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: I enjoy people-watching, but that's about the extent of my larger social experience. That being said, there are certainly trends among the guys and girls on campus. Typically, guys fall into the athletic or geeky categories, but with a good dose of the artistic type sprinkled in there. Girls are typically also athletic or geeky. "Hipster" fashion is pretty obvious, but so is average-ness. It's nice to see that a decent number of guys and girls are both interested in looking good and taking care of themselves physically. Romance and PDA aren't a hugely obvious in observing campus life but also contribute a good deal to the social environment, all the same.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Everyone is very laid back. Whether you are a girl or a guy, you learn to go with the flow and just have a great time.

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.
