There's a reason Colgate frequently tops the list for "Most Beautiful College Campus in America," and it's not just the landscaping we're talking about. Truth be told, the girls and guys are both attractive and well-dressed, dividing their non-studying time between working out in the gym and standing in front of the mirror. Taking a look around campus, one can find the latest fashions both off the runway and straight out of J. Crew and Vineyard Vines. Oxford button-downs, pearls, the signature Top-Siders and Wellies are standard apparel, but that doesn’t mean students don’t know the value of a good pair of sweatpants.
The male-to-female ratio hovers right around 50/50, meaning an ideal ratio for dating or hookups, and while Colgate isn’t known for its dating scene, there are many long-term couples on campus that are just lower profile than your standard Jug-goer. To be sure, the nightlife—especially the Jug (a steamy cesspool of hormones masquerading as a dance club)—make it easy to find a mate practically any night of the week. Just don't hit up the Jug too often, lest you gain the reputation of a "Jugrat," not exactly a compliment on this campus.
