4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: There is a diverse student body with all personality traits. However, everyone seems friendly. The first time I was on campus, a couple of girls asked if they could help me find what I was looking for. (Must have been my overwhelmed look.) Also, my mom came on campus and was lost. Some young man saw the confused look on her face and asked if he could help. I like our campus and those who attend K-State.

Guys & Girls: The guys and girls are your basic university grip, a little bit of every type.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: I would say that for the most part that guys and girls are either in a greek organization, athletes, or from a small town. Each one dresses a bit different. The Greeks normally dress preppy. The athletes are always wearing their warmups or some other sort of K-State athletic clothes. The people from the small town dress very agriculture, by that I mean there is a lot of boots, hunters clothes, and trucker hats.

Guys & Girls: There is an abundance of girls on campus compared to guy, which should be no problem for guys to find a girl. There is the rich from the poor, in which is mainly described by the type of apparel worn. The university I attend, also, does have a good ratio of multicultural races, which is great if you have plans to study abroad.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

When speaking of the student body at K-State, one must always remember that the emphasis belongs on “body.” K-State boasts a top-of-the-line, state-of-the-art recreation center, and walking through the quad, it’s obvious a lot of students have been putting it to good use. If the tan, taut, all-American specimen is what gets your motor running, you’ll find no shortage of fuel in Manhattan. Straight males and lesbians have particular reason to rejoice. Though a good many guys here give no more thought to their personal appearance than to who’s ripe for the ax on "America’s Next Top Model," girls generally groom themselves.

If for some reason you feel obliged to look beyond the purely physical and into the personality department, the pickings become somewhat less appetizing. Although a substantial percentage of the student population is composed of thoughtful, engaging, and truly unique individuals, there is a comparably substantial percentage of out-and-out tools—and not the sharpest the shed has to offer, either. You’ll also find, thanks to the virulent strain of religious conservatism on campus, that many of the models on display are, in truth, on display: You can look, but you can’t touch.

Social Scene
One of the major perks of a school as large as K-State is that there's a niche for every species of student. True, the fratmosphere is dense, but it's by no means suffocating. If one is seeking alternatives to the Greek scene, there are house parties, bars, late-night movies, and, for those unimpeded by a sense of self-consciousness, karaoke night at the local bowling alley. If anything, the student body is too social for its surroundings—people often feel compelled to drive to nearby cities like Topeka, Lawrence, or Kansas City to get their Friday-night fix.
Hookups or Relationships?
Both are available, though given the staggeringly high number of conservative Christians on campus, the latter are a little easier to come by. Guys unwilling to tolerate one-night stands should bring along some quality reading material—years ago, the KSU Collegian published a story about a girl who enforced a six-month probation period before permitting her boyfriend to kiss her.
Best Places to Meet Guys/Girls
All things considered, campus organizations are probably your safest bet. And, as the presence of a happily married couple in practically every university department attests, mutual affection sparked by common interest has a way of turning into something more.
Dress Code
The dress code is as tame as the animal science department's newborn calves—the jean-and-T-shirt combo is king. The prominence of cowboy hats, while perhaps not stylistically kosher, is more than redeemed by the scarcity of the popped collar.
