Study: SF State Grads Are Sexy Beasts

Scott Lucas | October 14, 2014 | Lifestyle Story City Life

Maybe it's the city living. Maybe it's the coursework. Maybe it's something in the Hetch Hetchy water. But whatever it is, alumni of San Francisco State are highly dateable. As in, top ten in the country.

That's according to matchmaking service The Dating Ring, which says that SF State has the seventh-most dateable graduates in the country. Nearing the bottom of the list was UC Berkeley, which had the seventh-least dateable graduates. (Ed. note: We went to Berkeley and can confirm that we are indeed insufferable.)

Over 18 months, the site collected feedback from 7,500 users, 19% of whom lived in San Francisco, about whether they would go on a second date with an alum from a given school. Topping the list was Colgate University, followed by Lehigh and the University of Texas Austin. The least datable graduates were from UC Berkeley, UPenn, Princeton, and UC Santa Barbara.

To be fair, the median SF State grad makes a starting salary of $46,000—whereas Cal Bears pull down a median starting of almost $60,000. So have fun splitting the check for two slices of Golden Boy and a Royal Gate vodka miniature bottle, Gators. At least you're hot.
