This study explores college students’ attitudes towards hookup culture, and how these attitudes potentially shift over their four years in college. More specifically, I examine how being a student at a women’s liberal arts college influences students’ interactions with the hookup culture, and how the education they receive shapes these interactions. I conducted in-depth interviews with 11 students at Scripps College, all in the spring semester of their senior year. I investigate themes including: pluralistic ignorance, sex positivity and female empowerment, criticisms of gendered stereotypes, and race and class dynamics within the hookup culture.
