Much has been said about the "hookup culture" on college campuses. Kent State is no exception to this trend, evolution, triumph, or travesty (depending on how you look at it). However, mourning the dating game is not in order. There are plenty of students in, seeking, or open to exclusive relationships. In short, dating is not dead. The romantic and sexual lives of students vary depending on their interests. Because of the diversity of the student population, it’s difficult to paint a picture of a typical male or female Kent State student. Current stereotypes aren’t definitive, and the classics may no longer be applicable. She owns at least one pair of leggings, maybe even jeggings, and he’ll wear that sweater from Mom––if not because he appreciates it, then because he knows the ladies do. And that’s about as standard as it gets. You’ll find many types of girls and just as many types of guys, because again, the student population is diverse.
It may be a notable statistic that there are more female students than male students (it's about a 3-to-2 ratio), but with as large a number of students as there are at Kent State, that fact is not as noticeable as one might expect.
