4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Most men and women are attractive and intelligent, some guys or girls look or act inappropriate and immature, and social lives on campus are considered very important. However, not every single person drinks, goes to parties, etc. so that is a comforting fact to me.

Guys & Girls: Most guys and girls do not get in serious relationships, which is disappointing to me.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The saying "there are always plenty of fish in the sea" describes the MSU dating pool perfectly. With nearly 46,000 students of different backgrounds, MSU is an ocean of single students looking for a relationship or a hookup. Most students agree that some of the most attractive members of either sex attend MSU, and with the prominent bar and party scene off campus, there are plenty of opportunities to meet someone interesting. Be warned, however—a large student population alone doesn’t mean everyone is going to be single, interested, or even friendly.

How you approach the MSU dating scene depends on whether you are just looking to meet new people or if you are ready for a committed relationship. This is most likely going to be the only time in your life that you are surrounded by such a large number of eligible people in your age bracket. This is the time to figure out what you like, what you don’t, what kinds of people you are attracted to, and whom you cannot stand being with. No matter what your sex or sexual preference, you will likely find a connection with at least one other person during your time at MSU.

Social Scene

Hookups or Relationships?
Most students on campus are still getting adjusted to the dating scene, so less serious relationships are more often seen around MSU. Academics and work can be both stressful and time consuming, and many students say that they don't feel that they have time for a long-term relationship.
Best Places to Meet Guys/Girls
There are many outlets to get involved with the dating scene on campus; it mostly depends on personal taste. If you are someone who enjoys dancing, there are plenty of parties and dance clubs near campus where you can spend your weekends. If you are more laid-back and would like to actually have a conversation, you can spend time staking out the hotties in a coffee shop or in the library. There are even options for the timid-several student-run Web sites provide dating classifieds for thousands of students looking for love.
Dress Code
Clothes aren't a huge deal at MSU. Most students dress casually, which usually includes jeans topped with a T-shirt or a sweatshirt.
