Most students go out at least once a week. Often, students will congregate with friends for a pre-game that usually includes only their closest friends. As the night progresses (around 10 p.m.), students will go out to the bars, frats, house parties, or simply hang out in the dorm on the weekends.
Hookups or Relationships?
There is not a great deal of dating per se, but there are quite a few people in long-term, exclusive relationships and a lot of friends-with-benefits. Especially for freshmen, both guys and girls usually want to experience their first year in college without the burden of commitment. That is, of course, unless the individual comes into their freshman year with a boyfriend or girlfriend from home, which is the case quite often. These long-distance relationships rarely last more than a few months in the sexually-charged atmosphere of SU. Still, many couples end up in committed, long-term relationships even after they leave Syracuse.
Best Places to Meet Guys/Girls
For some students, the best place to meet is simply in the library-a place where many attractive guys and girls gather to get some studying in before the weekend begins. Other students meet significant others at the bars or the frat parties around campus. These can be very good spots to hook up, but it's rarely the best method for finding a long-term relationship. The best place to make contacts and meet hotties is probably (and surprisingly) in class. Sure, it might not be the best setting for a romantic rendezvous, but since so much time is spent in the classrooms of SU, there is no better way to make small talk, get numbers, and get the ball rolling for something greater. Also, it doesn't hurt that many classes assign projects where you need to work with a partner, almost always of your own selection.
There is no set dress code at SU, but it's pretty safe to say that besides the first few weeks of school and the last few weeks of school, there will be very little time to spend in mini-skirts, shorts, and tank-tops walking around the campus. This makes it imperative to break out the true summer clothes whenever there is an indoors event-like going to the gym or going to bars and frats. Some students on campus dress in the trendiest outfits available, while others prefer more laid-back sweatpants and sweatshirts. There is a very eclectic mix of style at SU.
