Colleges with the Most Attractive Guys Ranking Methodology

The Colleges with the Most Attractive Guys ranking  assesses the attractiveness of male students on campus. A high ranking generally indicates that both male and female students report that their male peers on campus are very attractive.

1713 Colleges Assessed

At the time of analysis, our database contained records for 1,713 public and private, traditional four-year colleges and universities across the United States. For the purposes of this ranking, a "traditional" college is considered to be any accredited, non-profit post-secondary institution that primarily offers four-year degree programs (as opposed to two-year or less). Some colleges were not included in this ranking if: (1) they were not located in one of the 50 U.S. states, Puerto Rico, or the District of Columbia; (2) they had fewer than 100 full-time undergraduate students; or (3) they had insufficient data (see below).   Of the colleges that met the required qualifications, we were able to rank 944.
