Study Reveals the 10 Best — And Worst — College Alumni to Date


Going to a fancy schmancy Ivy League school may land you a great job, but it may not land you a spouse.

A new study has found the most — and least — datable college alumni in the country. If you’re looking to find a potentially great boyfriend or girlfriend, head to New York’s Colgate University. It has the most datable grads, with 81% making the cut.

Then, there’s Babson College in Massachusetts, which is the least datable. Only 17% are considered good enough to hit the town with. No Ivy League school finished among the most datable, while one — Princeton — was actually named one of the least.

The rankings were created by analyzing whether 1,600 people who went on 7,500 dates would consider a second date with people they went out with.

Most Datable Alumni:

1. Colgate University
2. Lehigh University
3. University of Texas Austin
4. University of Southern California
5. McGill University
6. University of Delaware
7. San Francisco State University
8. Boston University
9. Northwestern University
10. Williams College

Least Datable Alumni:

1. Babson College
University of Chicago
Rutgers University
University of Washington
Michigan State University
Binghamton University
University of California, Berkeley
University of Pennsylvania
Princeton University
University of California, Santa Barbara
