Most students graduate from college with lifelong friends, but some find a partner for life along the way.
Our friends at Niche, a database of school information, rounded up the places where you’re most likely to meet your future spouse by combining their lists of the friendliest students, the smartest students, and the most attractive students, with a religious emphasis on colleges.
We rounded up quotes from students on Niche to illustrate the dating culture at each school.
