Hingesights: Top 12 Hottest Colleges

We measure “hot” in college degrees.

Many may claim their alma mater is the nation’s biggest party school. Or maybe it has the most splendidly picturesque campus of all the campuses. But when it gets down to it, we know what you really want to know: who’s got the hottest people?

Remember when we showed you DC’s Hottest Workforces? Well, we’re back to the old grind, doing more pivotal research at Hinge Headquarters. Go ahead and let Playboy and Esquire say what they want– we did the legit, nerd-powered number crunching, and have proof that’s straight from the mouths of the people! You people, specifically.

We’ve compiled a list of the colleges and universities with the most highly appealing alumni in DC, according to your interest levels on Hinge. Want to see if your alma mater made the list? Check it:

The top 12, overall:

So first and foremost, Georgia has some hot dawgs living the district (see what we did there?) so props to all you peachy people. The fierce rivalry between Duke and Carolina continues with their DC crop of alumni– and apparently the Blue Devils have taken the lead over the Tar Heels in terms of sex-appeal.

Note: our copywriter is a Carolina fan and is not pleased with this statistic, but begrudgingly published it anyway.
Of the schools that made the lists, 67% are located below the Mason Dixon Line. Maybe the mild weather left a bit of its sunny vibrance with those who drank it in (amongst other things) for four years. Or maybe the harsh northern winters just… uhh… anyway, whatever the reason, the south did indeed rise again in DC. With their hotness. Not, like, another civil war or anything. Ahhh, okay. This got kinda weird. Moving on.


Soooo, how about Dickinson with that wild card, huh? Ranking at #3 for the ladies, amongst a smattering of southern-belle sorority schools, and #2 overall. Who knew that a tiny liberal arts college in “scenic” Carlisle, PA was churning out so many hunks and babes? We, for one, always appreciate an underdog victory. Well done, Red Devils.

And let’s forget what they say about nice guys– smart guys clearly finish first. There’s a strong repping of Ivy League U’s on the men’s list. Which, of course has nothing to do with their super valuable degrees and probably-awesome jobs, we’re sure. Although, Harvard is conspicuously missing. Maybe they’re all hidden away behind laptop screens, trying to become the next M. Zucks. It’s clearly a worthy cause… we heard he’s actually friends with Justin Timberlake in real life. And that makes you hot by proxy.

Anyway, hottie alums of the top-ranked schools: reinvigorate your school spirit! Go ahead and brag, you’re part of an elite network of desirable go-getters living in our nation’s capital.

And even if your school didn’t make the cut, there’s plenty of greatness to reflect on today. Let’s all take a moment to raise a can of (possibly skunked) Busch Light, and fondly reminisce the most intellectual, ragetastic, sexually adventurous, penniless, and brutally hungover four years of our lives. Amen.
