4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: I think the student population is about half and half girls and guys. There are so many personalities on this campus, which is really cool.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There are plenty of attractive, interesting guys & girls on campus. There is a diverse social scene, so you can find just about any type of person.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: We have a lot of stereotypical Greeks. Very preppy, seem to have a lot of money, and sometimes seem stuck up. Sometimes it's hard to find a good, religious person without being involved in one of the numerous religious organizations.

A walk around campus on a warm September afternoon says it all. Unless you remain confined within dorm walls, you will meet more members of the opposite sex than you could ever hope to remember. Don't worry, though, you'll remember the important ones! Your selection is extremely wide. If a particular guy or girl makes you yawn-next!

Great looks, a fancy car, and impeccable clothing do not always guarantee success with the opposite sex at UT. The common denominator among those truly successful with the opposite sex is a positive attitude and confidence. The outside appearance will only get you so far, especially if you are in it for more than mere casual encounters. In conclusion, there is a huge amount of different types of guys and girls to choose from. Whether you seek a friend, a date, a hookup, or a relationship, there are unlimited choices. You will enjoy meeting the friendly and laid-back students of UT.
