3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: There is very much a typical Georgetown student. Men are usually white, arrogant, rich, conceited, privileged, and immature. Women are just as white, wealthy, and conceited, though blissfully unaware of their privilege.

Guys & Girls: The people are either nice, or mean. There is no in between. Everybody wears the same thing and partying isn't a big deal.

Guys & Girls: For the most part, it's a pretty attractive campus. There's a lot of diversity (a lot more than people seem to think, more than any other school I've visited) so you have a lot of different, but all good looking people. And yes, a lot of people do dress preppy, but there's definitely way more people who dress hipster-y or super trendy than preppy. Most people are more concerned with their studies than how they look, however, so you don't have a lot of the seemingly perfect, borderline trashy, stereotypical hot chicks as you do at big fratty state schools, but you also get a lot less people walking around in pajamas. Campus is also low-key a lot more sexually active than you would expect from a top-tier Catholic school. People gotta de-stress from that heavy courseload somehow. Lots of random or casual hookups, and then consistent hookups that turn into serious relationships, but almost nothing in between. There is zero casual dating.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Most students agree that the dating scene is pretty informal. Dating is far less common than the ever-popular random hookup, and those who do date are quite often involved in long-term relationships. Most Hoyas are not at a loss when asked to explain this dynamic of frenetic coupling and re-coupling: Quite simply, they point out, Georgetown is full of sexy people. It’s a smörgåsbord of beauty. A very high selection of students would not be out of place in fashion catalogs—and this has only partly to do with their clothing. There is, in fact, a marked and famed difference between the attractiveness of Georgetown students and those of other universities in the area. For what it’s worth, the admissions committee does request that applicants include photographs of themselves when they send in their application.

Word on the street has it that the girls have a reputation for being haughty and hard-to-get, but the word on the street has a funny way of forgetting that this might be because most of the guys have a reputation for thinking about sex, alcohol, sleep, and career opportunities—in that order. The truth is that, in terms of the dating scene, you’re going to get a mix much like the one you’d get anywhere else. It’s hard to put a single label on 6,000 people—that is, when it comes to romantic aspirations. When it comes to physical attractiveness, there’s no problem at all—people at Georgetown are hot.

Social Scene
Georgetown students definitely embody the work hard/play hard mentality. During the week, students study vigorously and focus on their schoolwork, and the social scene is kept pretty quiet. However, the social scene really picks up on the weekends, when several parties are hosted each night. With local parties, clubs, and bars, Georgetown students keep themselves busy all weekend long.
Hookups or Relationships?
Like most universities, large numbers of Georgetown students go out weekend after weekend looking for random hookups and one-night stands. This is especially noticeable among the younger grades, when the new college student feels the need to live up to college stereotypes. However, there are sizable groups among the singles' pool with interest in dating; the trick is finding someone else who feels the same.
Dress Code
Georgetown students have the awful reputation of being typical preppy college students-clones wearing flipped collars and Rainbow flip-flops. However, in recent years, students have ventured away from this image toward more unique and fashion-forward styles. Guys are still often seen around campus in polo shirts and Madras plaid shorts, yet more guys are beginning to wear more casual jeans and T-shirts. Girls' clothing has much more variety; girls are now seen wearing more chic clothes like skinny jeans and a flowy top than the typical preppy attire. Almost everyone wears sandals or UGG boots.
