College dating statistics

Kenyon College student Eamon Levesque thinks the issues facing college students stem from differences between dating in high school and in college.

Emerson College student Paola Camargo views dating in college differently.Her data, published in , shows that college seniors have hooked up with an average of 8 people over 4 years — that’s two a year or one a semester.Twenty-four percent of students have never hooked up, and 28% have hooked up more than 10 times.These questions plague any college student brave enough to attempt dating in college.While some accept these nuances as “just the way it is,” others lament for a simpler time when dates, love letters and actually knowing where you stand were the norm.
