Student Author OverviewWhat's this?
View student contributors
With the University's diverse student body, it's nearly impossible to clump every Michigan student into one ranking. Students range in style, interests, and of course, looks. If you're seeking a relationship, chances are you'll find the person you’re looking for.
Due to Michigan's cold weather, many students drown in oversized sweatshirts to keep warm. On the weekends, however, regardless of temperatures, girls will sport their most flattering shirts and skirts, boys often dressing in jeans and T-shirts. Overall, however, there is no single "type" of person at Michigan. Students find that joining clubs and organizations is the best way to meet people who share your interests.

Best Places to Hook Up
- The Arb
- Dorm rooms
Like all colleges, the social scene at Michigan revolves around the weekend. Depending on your scene, most of the action happens at the bars, house parties, or frats, with most hookups taking place at frat parties, although the bar brings its fair share of hookups.
Hookups or Relationships?
For the most part, serious relationships aren't all that common on Michigan's campus. The ongoing hookup is common, but relationships at UM never seem to advance much beyond that. Of course, there are people that have serious relationships, and people do couple off, but mostly, it's just big groups of friends going out together.
Basic casual attire is best. There are a lot of artsy students that do not wear name-brand clothing.
