URI is the place to hook up, in every sense of the word, be it purely physical or a wonderful relationship. Students can potentially meet the guy or girl of their dreams just about anywhere on or off campus—there are no limits as to where you can meet attractive people. URI is a pretty vain school, and girls and guys both want to impress the opposite sex. Most students find an attraction or develop a crush without even looking for one. A lot of students take pride in their looks and want to show off their most outstanding “assets.” There is no stereotypical guy or girl on campus, and there is a wide variety of looks and personalities. But there is a lot of competition. The guys are aggressive and won’t hesitate to go after what they want. Most girls, however, just want to be impressed and swept away.
Love on campus can be a little tricky. Even if you aren’t interested in a relationship, chances are you’ll want some love and affection. It is evident by the high amount of promiscuity that relationships are not at the top of most students’ lists for things they want. As a result, casual sex is not an uncommon thing at URI. Alcohol might play a role in this by lowering the tension and pressure that goes along with conversating with the opposite sex. If you’re looking for love, you might not be successful at URI, but if you are looking for casual relationships, congratulations, you’ve hit the jackpot.
