You can generalize Tufts guys and girls and still be fairly accurate. They aren’t the best looking—usually a bit on the dorky side—and probably weren’t super-popular in high school, but they still really enjoy partying and socializing. Although Tufts is not a huge school, there are enough students and a relatively even mix of guys and girls that you’re sure to find attractive coeds. Many students agree that the athletes are particularly hot, especially the soccer and lacrosse players.
As far as the dating scene goes, freshmen are generally single; then about halfway through sophomore year, people begin pairing off. If you’re still a loner by senior year, you’ll probably find yourself surrounded by couples. Once everyone is attached, it seems like the dating scene is nonexistent and that all the good ones are taken. Never fear—Boston has thousands upon thousands of college students passing through every year, so there is always hope and plenty of opportunities to meet new people.
