3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There are a lot of good-looking people at USC, but this school has very much of a "hook-up" culture, so I do not see a lot of people actually dating/in a committed relationship.

Guys & Girls: If you want a relationship don't come to this school.
The nice guys are the gay ones. The majority of straight guys at SC are frat boys who are only interested in sex. There is a very prevalent rape culture here so WATCH OUT. Nobody is going to take you out on a date. They harass you at parties and if you don't give them what they want, they'll find somebody who will.
In turn, if you are looking for casual hook ups look no further. USC is candyland for the sexually gregarious.

People tend to be healthy and happy in Southern California, and these simple character traits work wonders for a person’s attractiveness. Aside from this, girls are downright beautiful, well dressed, and well spoken, and the guys tend to be tall and in strong physical condition. Gym demographics are a sure sign of what sort of look people are after. Guys are always hard at work in the weight room, while girls sweat out calories on the elliptical machines, treadmills, and StairMasters.

Guys and girls get along at USC, but they seem to have come here to have fun, not to fall in love. Like LA, USC has faces that you want to love, but how can you decide on which one to fall for? There is a superficial element to interactions between guys and girls that keeps people from letting their emotional defenses down, but that is to be expected. In USC’s defense, there are beautiful people here who don’t fit the stereotypes, as well as average-looking people who lead regular lives and enjoy their place in the sun. There is a great sense of outgoingness, as well, which allows everyone—from beautiful to not-so-beautiful—to have a good time, whether it's with friendships or French kisses.

Social Scene
USC is filled with social niches. The Greek system is the most outspoken and seemingly predominant social scene. Initially, most freshmen socialize with classmates and people in their housing complex. After the first few weeks of school, people tend to meet at parties on 28th Street (the Row) and other more relaxed settings. Greek students tend to stick together, mostly with the people in their own houses, but any outgoing, confident student will get along just fine with everyone.
Hookups or Relationships?
It is hard to maintain a stable relationship at USC. This seems to be a combined issue of vanity and bad timing. Many students have accepted the fact that people come to California in search of beautiful weather and beautiful people. There are exceptions to this, of course, but true love may be a little harder to find at USC than other colleges. Like a microcosm of greater Los Angeles, USC singles have a hard time finding lasting relationships due to the plasticity of the region.
Best Places to Meet Guys/Girls
If you're looking for something temporary, go to the 9-0 on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, the Row on Thursdays, and house parties and residence halls on weekends. If you are looking for commitment, sobriety is necessary.
Dress Code
The dress code on campus is casual. Rainbow sandals, cargo and board shorts, T-shirts, and sunglasses are the fraternity standard when the sun is shining. Sorority girls tend to go to class in velour and terrycloth outfits. Non-Greek students dress in any number of styles to complement the warm weather. Everyone looks the part when it's time to go out.
