The social scene at AU is varied-there's something for everyone. However, AU has an overwhelming female population. Therefore, many of the more attractive young women on campus either lower their standards-looks-wise-or choose to head off campus to find an equally attractive male counterpart. Ladies, do not fear, though: D.C. is full of eligible bachelors. Be sure to check out the frat and house parties, clubs, bars, and shows in the area.
Hookups or Relationships?
Both hookups and relationships exist commonly at AU, and both can be obtained if interested. Many of the busiest students opt for hookups, though, so as not to interfere with their schoolwork or internships.
Because AU is in the highly-professional capital city, the dress is more formal than most places. Students are often seen wearing suits while coming and going from internships or jobs, with slacks and collared shirts not unusual. Outside of the professional aspect of the fashion at AU, the students are indistinguishable from any other college students. Hoodies and flip-flops are everywhere!
