The most common advice given when it comes to dating at Brandeis is to lower your standards. Brandeis is a school that prides itself on its unique yet awkward student body. Attractive people and potential partners do exist at Brandeis, but there are very few. Relationships at Brandeis tend to last a long time, so there is not even the hope that attractive couples will break up, which leaves a lot of rather strange and average-looking people without a partner.
Brandeis students range from being very open in their sex life to not being able to even touch members of the opposite sex for religious reasons. Student Sexuality and Information Services supplies condoms, lube, and other sex related products to students at a heavily discounted price. They have quite a presence on campus. Most students complain about the guys and girls at Brandeis because they look at schools like the University of Indiana or the University of Miami and are disappointed in the comparison to Brandeis.
