  •  I went to a college w/ more men than women (2+ / 0-)

    I think it was about 60/40 in those days.  Because of 'freshman funnies' the upper classmen were able to purchase before the year began, all freshmen women were already recognized the moment they set foot on campus. Within days, the whole student body knew which among us were virgins, and the most popular of those gals were pursued with a vigor which was rather unnerving.

    We all became invisible (at least for a couple weeks) the first day of our sophomore year when the new crop of freshwomen arrived.

    •  One of my friends went to Bucknell. (0+ / 0-)

      She was so excited to get her freshman facebook (or whatever they called it -- maybe it was "funnies", too). It took her about a semester to realize that she had been permanently assessed by the sophomore boys' club before she even checked into her dorm.

    •  60/40? (0+ / 0-)

      Pah! Try 8/1! :-)

      But oddly, it was a less hostile environment than you experienced.
