Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The guys at IWU all try to work out, but some just don't stick with it. Those that do are usually readily identifiable athletes, what with their sculpted muscles and good form. The others hang out and try to do something with their soft musculature, usually to no avail. Guys that don't at least try to hit the weights make up for their lack of physical prowess with wit or charm. A lot of the guys don't need to work out because they've got a really great sense of humor. The most personable and approachable guys either live or hang out at the frats; that much is obvious. There's a reason they live with a bunch of other guys; they like to be social.

The girls on campus are another breed entirely. Unlike the guys, the only girls that really work out are the athletic ones, and they are a sight to be seen. For this reason, not a lot of the relatively unfit girls make it to the treadmills. For as many girls that work out and live in sororities and are conventionally beautiful, there are as many girls that stay far away from frat parties and are unconventionally beautiful. Perhaps the most baffling and continually intriguing facet of the female population is the inherent allure of the freshman class. No matter how many faces there are on campus, the newest crop of freshman ladies always looks better than last year's. It's an amazing phenomenon that is currently being investigated by our human development faculty.

Social Scene
Generally, the big parties at IWU take place at the frats. You're likely to meet a lot of new people, and the music is always loud. However, some of the most fulfilling social interactions happen at smaller gatherings of close friends. There are so many interesting people on campus that you won't hear what they have to say in a dark frat basement. This makes for a nice balance between incoherent debauchery and intelligent debate.
Hookups or Relationships?
Since most students share a room with someone, one-night stands are less frequent. Many students have steady boyfriends or girlfriends and find time to get away from campus.
Dress Code
For the most part, students dress preppy, upper-middle-class suburbanite, which makes sense. However, the best-dressed men and women on campus have their own personal style. Prevailing fashion trends make their way through campus and are readily identifiable. However, if you pop your collar in a serious attempt to look cool, people you've never met before will take the time to fix it for you.
