“Average” is the most commonly used word when asking anyone at Valpo about the physical attributes of the opposite sex. There are few good-looking ones wandering around, but there's no promising that they aren’t taken. The good guys are usually taken; the good girls are usually taken. A lot of Valpo students end up finding the loves of their lives here. The variety of the students, however, is pretty strong. There is a good mix of jocks, geeks, creative artists, and average joes living on campus. Unfortunately, once you feel like you've exhausted all of the options on campus, you are pretty much done until college is over. It is much harder to meet people off campus and from other schools than if you click with someone that goes to Valpo as well, but it is possible.
The social scene is what you make of it. There are plenty of activities to get involved in, or you can just choose to stay in your room and watch movies with friends. There's a decent mix of people who choose to go out and who choose to stay in. There are always fraternity or house parties on the weekend, but Valpo is a dry campus, so be careful when coming back. Other than that, there are always things to do in Chicago for date nights and weekends.
