Truth is, USD males tend to look forward to the weekends because it’s the time of the week where females are somewhat expected to spend time getting ready to go out and flaunt what they have. Hookups happen often, both on and off campus; however, not all students are concerned about looks, and you’ll find a decent amount of both guys and girls who feel much more comfortable in a T-shirt and jeans than a miniskirt or button-down shirt. Whatever you want to do and whomever you want to meet, you’ll have a chance here at USD.
There are those, especially girls, who do dress up to get noticed. If the girls are looking to get hit on all night or get compliments on their looks, they should dress nicely, put on makeup, and do their hair. For the guys, tight shirts seem to be in at USD, as long as you can pull it off. Either way, dressing up gets some sort of social reward. But you don’t have to dress up in order to be accepted—at least, not by your own gender. Plenty of students go out in University shirts, and sometimes a funny shirt will get more compliments than a tight one. There are a variety of students at USD, and you’re bound to find the crowd that interests you. We judge people more by who they are than by what they wear.
