Students agree that the student body is very eye pleasing, literally. While there is a little more commentary about the girls, they do not discount the attractiveness of the male population. Looks aside, students do find most people to be accepting and friendly in nature. This "Midwestern mentality" makes it easy for new students or visors to feel comfortable at UW.
UW brings a wide range of people, and with that comes a wide range of personalities. It's not really fair to typify the guys into one group and the girls into another. Overall, there are a lot of friendly people. Whether you're in class, at work, or at a party, it is very easy to find someone to chat with, and more so to feel comfortable in your surroundings. That is the key-to find the environment you're into. On the flip side, you will find those that you clash with. Class-wise, this is great because it creates dialogue and debate, and hopefully both sides will leave the conversation with a better understanding of each other. Socially, this can be a problem, but only if you let it. Know whom you can and cannot tolerate outside of the classroom, and choose your social events accordingly.
