4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: I probably would not have kept going to this college if it wasn't for the friends I've made and the students I've worked with. We have many international students, despite having such a small student body. Most students participate in several clubs and eat meals with different friends some days. This allows students to get to know their best friends' other hangout groups. Most people on campus know each other or at least recognize each other, especially if a student is in the same class year. Fashion doesn't really help or hurt student relationships on campus, everyone is unique and does their own thing and everyone tends to accept that, but no one really goes out of their way to talk to someone that catches their attention.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Guys are either really well-dressed or really dressed-down. Girls are pretty much the same. People at college wear bummy clothes, what can I say? My college is small but you'd be surprised at the number of couples. Interests are pretty diverse ranging from all of the clubs at school, sports, and other activities.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Everyone is very nice and open to questions and conversation.

1 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Most guys here are spoiled, drunken jerks.

Guys & Girls: The school is almost a family. It is not difficult finding who you share similarities with. Everybody is familiar with each other. There are no problems within the student community.

W&J is small—there is no doubt about it. And as a school with only 1,500 people, gossip spreads quickly, and your options sometimes feel a little limited. Those looking for more serious relationships mostly find who they will date in class or in one of their friends' classes, while those who just want a random hookup will usually find that at a frat party. There are also people from other schools nearby who come to visit friends and are a breath of fresh air at a school where everyone seems familiar.

Even though the school is small, it is split pretty evenly between girls and guys, though the types of girls and guys that are at the school varies a little more. While there are those students who are more promiscuous, many don’t want to chance that sort of lifestyle in a school where everyone knows what happens every weekend. Students that like to party hard and find a boyfriend or girlfriend who wants to do the same tend to be in a fraternity or sorority. Beyond that little difference, students are pretty similar or at least have friends from all different kinds of groups.

Social Scene
If you want to find a good party, the only place to go is one of the frats. The fraternities are the only ones who throw big parties or even the occasional theme party in the basement of the Wellness Center. Sometimes larger parties start up in the dorms, but these are always stopped by the RA on duty. As long as you are a W&J student, any fraternity will let you in once the house is open for the night. Even when one of the frats is on probation and can't throw big parties, students are usually able to get one of their friends to let them in.
Hookups or Relationships?
A large portion of the college comes from the surrounding Pittsburgh area, so many are already in a relationship when they get to school. Sometimes these last, but more often they are over within the first few months of freshman year, which leaves most of the campus looking for new dating options. The campus is small, though, so if you break up with someone that goes to W&J, you will see them everywhere, and you're bound to hear about it the instant they start a new relationship.
Dress Code
When you see students dressed more casually or when you see someone on the way to the gym, they will tend to be wearing W&J gear that they have acquired from many college events and Greek parties. For all of the fraternity and sorority events, there are always T-shirts for all members going to the event. All of the clubs also hand out shirts to members throughout the year, so by the time a student graduates, they have at least drawer full of random W&J shirts. Students can dress nicely when they want to, though, and when students do dress nicely for class or dinner, they tend to dress on the preppy side.
Did You Know?
Every year, there is at least one fraternity that throws a "my tie" party that involves girls picking a random tie and then finding the guy who it belongs to, who is then their date the rest of the night.
