Guys & Girls

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: For the most part everyone on campus is friendly, polite and accepting. There isn't a lot of judgement however occasionally you will meet people who are.

We all have relatively similar styles, either slightly hipster or sporty. This is the same for both genders. We have a wide array of interest though most students are going into the medical field (best medical education in the state). It is very easy to meet people on campus through the large amount of clubs we have.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: There is a wide range of people that is for sure. A lot of people dress up, but I think most of those people are graduate students. There are a lot of people that wear sweatpants on a regular basis. I am on of those people because I would rather be comfortable so that I can pay attention in class. I also have no one to impress because I am just doing my generals, so I do not care to dress up. There are some people that wear shorts all year round. Personally I think that is crazy because it can get very cold in the winter months. There is no way to distinguish the jocks from the nerds because everyone in college is focused on their studies and trying to get to the next stage in life. I personally really like this because I feel like there are no standards to live up to each day, you simply have to be yourself, try your hardest, and set your own goals from their.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Many of the students at USD have to dress according to the weather because it ranges so much throughout the year. But for the most part I believe that most students act and dress like their own gender stereotype.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Truth is, USD males tend to look forward to the weekends because it’s the time of the week where females are somewhat expected to spend time getting ready to go out and flaunt what they have. Hookups happen often, both on and off campus; however, not all students are concerned about looks, and you’ll find a decent amount of both guys and girls who feel much more comfortable in a T-shirt and jeans than a miniskirt or button-down shirt. Whatever you want to do and whomever you want to meet, you’ll have a chance here at USD.

There are those, especially girls, who do dress up to get noticed. If the girls are looking to get hit on all night or get compliments on their looks, they should dress nicely, put on makeup, and do their hair. For the guys, tight shirts seem to be in at USD, as long as you can pull it off. Either way, dressing up gets some sort of social reward. But you don’t have to dress up in order to be accepted—at least, not by your own gender. Plenty of students go out in University shirts, and sometimes a funny shirt will get more compliments than a tight one. There are a variety of students at USD, and you’re bound to find the crowd that interests you. We judge people more by who they are than by what they wear.

Social Scene
With a large majority of USD students majoring in political science, business, or mass communications, much of the student body is naturally outgoing and usually willing to interact with any student that shares at least a few similar interests. Like any college, you'll find your social butterflies and your less interactive students, but if you want to go out and interact with a crowd, you'll have no problem finding one. Most social students are in a number of organizations, and the best way to meet a variety of people is to surround yourself with a variety of organizations and opportunities.
Hookups or Relationships?
It's safe to say dating may be dead at USD. Most students prefer initial hookups before real romance, and a good number of students are in serious relationships with people other than USD students. If you're looking for romance, you may find it, but no one is making any promises. The social scene at USD is so interactive and energetic that relationships tend to fail before they even start. But, when you find the right one, everyone will be happy for the two of you, call you married, and forget to invite you to the singles party on Friday night. However, if you're looking to hook up with someone, you'll find a huge social scene willing to invite you out every weekend, where both the ladies and guys are just having some wholesome fun.
Dress Code
The dress code at USD is pretty flexible—everyone dresses according to his or her mood, style, and interest in being noticed. We have a variety of dress types, from hippies and skateboarders to young professionals to those who attend class in their pajamas. On the weekend, it's highly expected for most girls to look like they're ready for a night out, but wearing a shirt and jeans will still get you through the door—it just might not get you a date. Guys wear jeans downtown and out to parties. In general, it's not so much about what you're wearing but the attitude you are sending off that makes people notice you or not.
