The Hookup Scene

The college campus is not the only place where people hook up, but there is something unique about campus life that makes the hookup culture flourish there.1 In my conversation with Jen, a junior at State University, she talked about the difference between living at home during summer break and being on campus. She touched on many different aspects of college life that make it more conducive to hooking up than dating.

KB: So what's different about home that would make you go out
on a date there and not here [at school]?

Jen: [Guys at home] don't have this incredible access to girls like
these guys have… and there are very beautiful girls here [at
State U.], and they have a whole bunch of them in a concen-
trated area with their apartments and massive amounts of
alcohol involved. That's just great opportunity for them
[guys at school].

KB: For them?

Jen: Yeah definitely. I guess whatever way you look at it; it's a
great opportunity [to hook up] if that's what you want. [At
home] you like have to meet the parents. And it's not like if
I go out and I meet somebody at home that I am interested
in, when I'm at a bar or wherever we meet, it's not like I'm
going to see him the next night at the same place, or in a
week on campus, I might not see him again. So he'll take
your number. And if they want to get to know you it's not
like they can come over to your parents' house and sleep
over… they actually have to make that effort to take you out
on a date. So that's probably the difference.

KB: And you have gone on formal dates at home [during sum-
mer break]?

Jen: Yes.
