For every three females at Eastern Illinois University, there are only two males. It is apparent to some students, but it doesn’t bother them.
“I’m indifferent. I have definitely noticed it, but it doesn’t bother me. I guess, you could see it positively or negatively depending on how you look at it.” Colton Loew, an EIU junior, said.
Loew stated that he could really see a difference when he came here from the city and his community college; he could “see a difference” of a school population with less men.
The ratio for Loew is, “neither a good thing nor a bad thing.” It can be looked at many different ways. For example, a guy who is looking for a relationship this ratio might help him out.
“If you’re trying to meet girls at the bar, like Marty’s, it’s a good thing.” Loew said.
On the other hand, when trying to meet guy friends you relate to, you might find some difficulties.
“If you’re trying to make really good guy friends, like bros, it’s going to be harder.”
For the most part, Loew sees the difference between male and female students as, “just a ratio,” and he also stated that if the ratio was, “1 guy for 20 girls,” then that would be a problem.
