Maybe it's Connecticut College's history as a former all-girl's school, or maybe just pure chance, but the ratio of guys to girls is about forty to sixty. Translation: guys have good odds here for a love connection, or at least a hookup. More often than not, Conn students aren't looking for long-term relationships, but serious relationships can develop from random hookups. Dances at Cro provide more than ample opportunity for both sexes to find a potential hookup buddy. If you like to take it slow in relationships, however, Conn may not be the place for you. Conn's small size and plentiful single rooms could effectively make you roommates with your new boyfriend/girlfriend before you know it.
Judging solely from student response, Conn guys, on the whole, are not hot, while Conn girls are more attractive than average. Both sexes care about their appearance; few stumble into class wearing crumpled clothes found under the bed. The dress code is decidedly preppy, and a group of students on campus can sometimes resemble a J.Crew ad. Then again, there is a significant portion of students who defy this edict and wear whatever they like. It all comes down to personal comfort. On the whole, Conn is a good-looking campus as long as your tastes don't skew goth or punk. If so, you're pretty much out of luck. It should be said that most students at Conn, guys and girls, are friendly and outgoing people.
