AC is a heavily academic school, and it is more likely that AC students were involved in student government or the academic decathlon in high school than being homecoming king or queen. Judging on looks alone, most students would agree that the opposite sex on campus is merely average. This does not mean there aren’t good-looking people or that everyone is ugly, but there aren’t too many beauty-pageant winners hanging around AC. However, if you're looking for a nerd-at-heart, this is the place for you. The guys and girls alike are completely comfortable with their geeky sides—and let their geek flag fly—even some who might surprise you.
The girl-to-guy ratio on campus is pretty equal, so there isn't really an issue of finding members of the opposite sex to hang out with. A more prominent problem that you will hear from girls is finding a decent guy who isn't in a relationship or gay. In addition to it being a small school, students rarely date outside their larger social circles (for example, the hard partiers with the bio chem nerds) which causes a small dating pool among friends. While this is to be expected in this petri dish of a community, the great thing is that most students quickly realize there is no room for awkward breakups or run-ins with hookups from the night before. Going to a small school means you know everyone, and you can't get by if you are going to be awkward.
