The Best and Worst Colleges for Meeting Men

The good news: Women now outnumber men when it comes to earning college degrees. The bad news: This makes every cute guy on campus a hotter commodity than a ball-player at a Kardashian family reunion. Finding a guy to occupy our free time - and beds - shouldn't be too much for college-aged women to ask for.

Unfortunately, at New York University, where I went to undergrad, it totally was. Straight, dateable guys felt like such an endangered species that watching one get approached at a bar or party was like turning on Animal Planet the moment before the lion pounces on the zebra. The upshot of going to a school where the women far outnumbered the datable dudes is that I figured out some stealth tactics for meeting men, like finding out where the sports teams celebrated their big wins and showing up there (What? I like jocks.) or mixing up my routine and taking different routes to my classes (well hello, sharp-suited subway rider…). So even if you're at one of the "worst" schools to meet single guys, take it from someone who knows-it's not hopeless. And hey, even if I didn't meet my future husband in college (and I'm actually glad I didn't), I had a great time finding my future bridesmaids.

Here, Cosmo's lists of the best and worst colleges to meet men:
