Guys & Girls

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: I appreciate that there are no frat bro's

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The severe gender imbalance makes it very difficult to find someone as a girl. Pitzer is already majority girls, minority boys, and when you throw Scripps (all girls) into the mix, it's totally lopsided. Everyone is very cool and chill, they ride skateboards and have long hair, loose pants, tiva sandals and generally no makeup.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The hookup culture here can be really annoying. But, there are some really great people out there if you take a minute to look.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Most people here are pretty artsy, hipster, and hippy. That basically sums up the majority of people here. Guys are pretty cute throughout the Claremont Colleges. It's just hard to believe that a lot of these people are rich and dress terribly.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

There is no true "average" student at Pitzer. All the students feel differently about how the guys and girls look, mainly because judging looks is so subjective. For the most part, though, the general trend of opinions seems to say that there are a great deal more beautiful girls than good-looking guys at the College. Add into this the fact that the girl/guy ratio is disproportionate and you have complaints all across the spectrum. Guys are lucky enough to have their pick of beautiful girls, but, true to societal trends, girls tend to go more for personality than looks. This isn't to say that there aren't any good-looking guys at Pitzer, because there most certainly are; girls just happen to be more plentiful at the 5Cs (especially with Scripps, the all-female college). The ratio of girls to guys, however, is not so devastatingly different that it has a huge impact on the dating scene.

When you do venture to find some late-night lovin', attending one of the 5C parties is a great place to start. As a whole, students of the Claremont Colleges are a sexually promiscuous bunch, but not so much so that it gets out of hand. Even the Student Health Services center suggests that students have healthy sex lives, and you better believe that Pitzer students take that advice to heart.

Social Scene
The social scene at Pitzer is very friendly and community-based. By the time you finish your freshman year, chances are you will know (or know of, at the very least) most of the student body. Students have a diverse range of friends and, while there are some cliques, they are not exclusive. The parties at the Claremont Colleges allow for students from all five schools to interact, making it easier to branch out and make friendships you might not have made while on Pitzer's campus. Being able to take classes at the other 5Cs makes this easier, as well. As a whole, Claremont is a very tight-knit consortium, and you will be able to find your niche with ease.
Hookups or Relationships?
Relationships at Pitzer and the rest of the Claremont Colleges are typical of college life. Some students frequently have casual hookups, while others prefer monogamy and relationships. One-night stands are not uncommon; neither are friendships or random hookups that turn into relationships. There is no true general consensus about relationship statuses at Pitzer-they always vary from person to person.
Dress Code
Pitzer students have very eclectic tastes when it comes to style. A great deal of students are "hipsters" who rock Ray-Bans, plaid shirts, and beanies. On the other hand, there are also many students who have styles that are completely their own and who do not necessarily fit into any style category.
