Birth Control Available?
Condoms are often available for free from RAs. They go quick, though, and you can get as many as you want for really cheap from Health Services. Other birth control options are available through the doctor's clinic at Health Services. They will also help you get Plan B.

Earlham students are mostly extroverted, social, and easy-going. Making friends is easy here, and people don't think twice about striking up conversations with strangers. Fluid sociability means that someone who's interesting to you probably won't stay a stranger for long, and social circles overlap a great deal. People enjoy hanging out with friends and usually have fun in more creative, less conventional ways.
Hookups or Relationships?
The romantic and sexual scene on campus is mostly polarized at the opposite extremes. Students either play the random hookup game or seem only weeks away from planning their wedding and naming their children. The gray area in between gets more complicated and tends to get the rumor mill going.
Best Places to Meet Guys/Girls
The campus's small size means that you don't have to go out of your way to cross paths with most people on campus on a daily basis. That cute boy or girl in your econ class will probably hold a work-study job somewhere on campus and be involved in a club or sport, as well. To meet potential mates, get involved on campus in whatever interests you most. You'll have a chance to meet lots of potential friends and dates who can't help but share common interests. Parties are a good chance to flirt and dance with people you've already become more familiar with.
The stereotypical Earlhamite shops at Goodwill, the free box in Runyan, and their roommate's closet, throwing together a "dirty hippy" look with a brush-free hairdo and flip-flops. However, this is only a facet of the population, as many students spend a bit more time and money to coordinate athletic, preppy, and artsy appearances.
