While UMCP has become more research-oriented and productivity-focused, the campus continues to be well known for having a good deal of fit, attractive students with “physical talent” who know how to manage themselves well. The campus’s emphasis on athletics and its state-of-the-art recreation facility motivate many students to keep in shape, especially during College Park’s colder months. Come spring, when Eppley Recreation Center's outdoor pool opens on North Campus, you’ll find already-fit guys and girls getting sun, flirting, and showing off their bodies. UMCP is a pretty trendy campus, as many students display the latest fashions and styles from all of the “in” stores.
At UMCP, it’s generally accepted that there are more hot girls than guys—but not by an astronomical margin. Here are some generalized statistics: 10 percent of students are hot, another 10 percent of students are inspirational-looking and therefore motivate other students to hit the gym, 20 percent are good looking, 40 percent are average looking, and 20 percent could use a complete makeover. Perception is based on preference, and UMCP’s diversity means that there’s someone for everybody, whether they meet in a computer lab, in Hornbake Library, or at a sporting event.
