Guys & Girls: Primary the ethnic at SDSU is white. Many are dressed in the latest wear like Brandy Melville, TopShop, Urban Outfitters, etc. However, it is true how people dress down for college such as sweatpants and hoodies. The social life is fun and amusing. SDSU is really fun and quite school spirited.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

To be blunt, San Diego State is home to lots of gorgeous people. Girls at SDSU are known to be some of the prettiest in the state, and you would be hard-pressed to disagree. Heidi Klum would fit in perfectly here. Guys are known to be almost as equally attractive, but they care a lot less about their looks than the women. The attractiveness of the student population probably has something to do with the school's social reputation as "the place to be." The perfect weather certainly helps paint everyone in a positive light. If you're looking for a college with people who are easy on the eyes, it does not get much better than at San Diego State.

Girls are beautiful here, thanks to both their natural beauty and the care they put into their appearance. Guys are also good-looking if you like the surfer look, but frankly, they just don't care much about how they look. The downside to all this attractiveness, if any, is the complaint about the superficiality of everyone. I have heard numerous arguments about how most people who attend this school are shallow and care more about the hair on top of their head than the knowledge inside their head. This perspective is true to some extent, but with people as attractive as they are, it would be strange if they weren't a tad bit superficial; it comes with the territory. With some of the most beautiful college students around, you couldn't ask for much more out of San Diego State.

Social Scene
A majority of students would describe the dating scene at San Diego State as desolate. Perhaps it is the extreme attractiveness of the women that intimidates the guys. Or maybe it's the atmosphere they've been raised on since freshman year which encourages solidarity. More dating tends to takes place among the more conservative (those who don't party) students, while the wilder set seems content to simply hook up during the weekend. It seems that a large portion of the dating scene at San Diego State has been replaced by drunken weekend hookups.
Hookups or Relationships?
There are more hookups than relationships. Because of the large size of the school, the pool never runs dry.
Best Places to Meet Guys/Girls
It varies, some students go to class in sweats and a T-shirt, signifying that they don't want to talk to anyone. There are students who go to class dressed in their best attire, perhaps it means they are willing to meet new people. But other than meeting people under the roofs of the classroom, outside of the school setting is where you meet potential hook-up buddies. At weekend parties, you are much more likely to meet a potential hook-up buddy than at any other time.
Dress Code
Girls: Sundresses, miniskirts, or short shorts, and flip-flops are the way to go around campus. Guys: Go for a very casual, laid-back look of T-shirts, jeans, flip-flops or Vans, and aviator-style sunglasses.
