4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Guys are mostly attractive. And I guess the girls are too. There are actually a lot of married couples here, but not as many as BYU.

Guys & Girls: I'm definitely bias in saying there is a above level of attractiveness in both guys and girls. But everyone is really chill in the way they interact with each other. Everyone's willing to make friends and no one I have ever met is clique-y or exclusive.

College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Its hard to give a rating for guys and girls because everyone is so different. You can't generalize the population based off of such personal details

Guys & Girls: Mostly mingling, not too many couples. Active social lives. Most girls go for the hipster look and most guys are into the skater look. Interests mainly include sports, partying, outdoor activities and working out.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: I believe that the girls on campus are great. Nice looking, fun, friendly, active. I am from California and I met really nice girls who came up and asked to join in an activity with another person I just met the very first week. There are tons of activities for every interest. Lots of sporting events you can attend. (The MUSS is excellent.) Then there are lots of clubs like Outdoor Leadership, academic clubs, ski/snowboarding clubs, dances, tailgating events, etc. If you don't find something to become involved in then that is your fault because the university definitely has lots to offer.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

The University of Utah is obviously populated by many Mormons who follow the adage "Bring 'em Young." That being said, there are a lot of married students at the U. However, this should not discourage you from trying to find love on campus. It's a big school and that equates to many single people, kind of the strength-in-numbers approach.  

Many Mormons feel it's necessary to date and marry within their faith, and the Institute across the street from campus does a good job of introducing young people. For those not of Mormon faith, it then becomes your responsibility to meet and mingle with others. There are plenty of clubs, organizations, parties, and different means to meet people. The University of Utah has some very good-looking people, but be warned—look for wedding rings before making that final approach!

Social Scene
Because the U is a commuter campus, the sense of a "campus community" is largely nonexistent. If you take the time to get involved with clubs and organizations, however, you'll be able to carve out your own little community. For those who live on campus, though, dorm life is reasonably healthy and provides ample opportunities to meet people.
Hookups or Relationships?
Depends. If you're Mormon, you're probably looking to get married, and if you are married, you're not looking at all. If you're not Mormon, you are probably looking for more of a casual relationship. Overall, there seems to be a rush to get to the altar, which engulfs the whole state of Utah no matter where you go. Maybe it's just in the water.
Dress Code
People at the U come in a wide variety of wardrobes, but by and large, "casual" is the name of the game. The more dressed up someone is, the less time he or she has spent at the U. To buy a few extra minutes of sleep, a lot of commuters forgo certain social amenities (like shaving, makeup, and so on).
