Maybe it's all the warm weather here, or the Southern hospitality, but it's a commonly accepted fact that Southern people are just more attractive. Maybe it's the tan skin or that Southerners rarely have to bundle like polar bears in winter clothing, but for most people, a walk around LSU's campus is undeniably a glance at some really attractive folks. Most students are open to hanging out at parties and going on casual dates with almost anyone that asks. The male-to-female ratio is fairly even, and though students may go through dry spells, rarely will you meet a student who hasn't had at least a few dates in their college career.
But serious courtship can be a whole other matter. Some students are obviously out to either graduate with their "Mrs. degree" or leave with a wife in tow. Conversely, there are some students who have no desire to be involved in anything. Relationships run the gamut from commitment-free sexual conquests to serious, life-long companionship. Many acknowledge that the girls tend to be more attractive than the guys. Some of the men here look like they either never hit puberty, or if so, it was a severely turbulent time. Some students complain that people can be too preppy, and it's hard to deny that it can be more difficult to find someone who is not Republican and into the conservative lifestyle. The sheer magnitude of the campus gives students hope that somewhere out there, a potential hottie is waiting to be found.
