AOL Travel magazine once named San Diego the No. 1 city for finding beautiful people. This statistic unfortunately is not true for UCSD. Students are generally disappointed with the physical attributes of the opposite sex. They have dreams of coming to college and living in the midst of a campus filled with beautiful people, but these dreams come to a nightmarish end once students step foot on campus. With the beach minutes away and an emphasis on fitness, UCSD students are known to be surprisingly unattractive or lacking in social skills. UCSD students usually blame the pressures of studying and getting good grades for the lack of attractive girls and guys on campus.
However, don’t move to San Diego expecting to spend a lonely and celibate four years while locked in your room studying. San Diego State is only minutes away and is infamous for its hot girls and guys and wild parties. There are also students who say there are attractive people all over UCSD and those who disagree are just being picky. Overall, most people are friendly, outgoing, laid-back, and in shape. It is easy to make friends and have good relationships. You just might have to look a little harder to find that perfect person with beauty and brains.
