Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

On average, students at UIC are somewhat conservative. Dating is an active part of student life, and many are involved in serious relationships—hence, few epic tales of random hookups and wild parties float around campus. Without breaking a sweat, one can spot students on campus holding hands and displaying affection for one another. Now, although UIC has a diverse student body, interracial relationships are rare on campus. Relationships usually stay amongst students of the same race, leaving a smaller game population when it comes to finding a partner. Fortunately, local bars and clubs are great places where one can meet young singles from other universities and surrounding areas.

The ratio of sexually active students to those who aren’t is quite even. Birth control is readily available on campus at the health center, and students are given a lot of it. Relationship advice and counseling are also available for those students who are overwhelmed by the stress of college and managing a relationship. And if one doesn’t find what one is looking for on campus, a whole city awaits.
