3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Everyone is just trying to figure out who they are

Guys & Girls: You are surrounded by all kinds of people, making it easier to find someone to date. I think the dating/hooking up scene is a lot easier in Greek Life, but you really don't have to be in a fraternity/sorority to find someone. On that note, you don't need to party/drink in order to find someone special.

Guys & Girls: Expect "bros." The fraternities own Mizzou, which isn't necessarily a bad thing as they offer many social opportunities and inherent friendships. The greek life governs Mizzou's social life for the most part. Most of the campus, like 80% is Caucasian, but there are several very accepting clubs. During Ferguson and other protests, the campus was adamant about expressing concern and showing support for "Black Lives Matter."

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

With 20,000-plus students in attendance at Mizzou, it is not very difficult to find "Mr./Ms. Right" or "Mr./Ms. Right Now." The nightlife at Mizzou offers plenty of opportunities to hook up, and the various classes with people of the same major offer opportunities to find that perfect someone. The guy-to-girl ratio is in favor of the guys at the bars and in favor of the girls when it comes to house parties.

You would think that students at Mizzou are very sexually promiscuous, but most are just trying to find that someone to fall in love with. The average student at MU is a hardworking, party-oriented, friendly, and fun person.

Social Scene
Mizzou's campus provides plenty of opportunities to be social. Residence halls are the perfect place to start for freshmen. Most students party it up Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and sometimes even Sunday nights. The local bars offer plenty of drink specials to get people together.
Hookups or Relationships?
Many people believe that college is mainly for hookups and one-night stands. There are plenty of opportunities for those at bars and house parties. Others, more serious people, believe that they will find their soul mate while spending four years studying. Then, there are the people who are in the middle, who just happen to find the person they want to spend the rest of their lives with. All categories are very prominent at Mizzou; it just depends on the places one frequents.
Dress Code
To house parties, students wear whatever the theme is or just casual clothing. Some bars and clubs have a strict dress code. For those places, guys should wear dress shirts and nice jeans or khakis. Girls should stick to dressy shirts, nice jeans, and high heels. Most girls wear very short skirts and very high heels, basically very little clothing. So anything between those two extremes will do just fine.
