I’m Smart, You’re Smart, Let’s Do Dinner
Dating among Stanford grad students? I've heard the "hook up" stereotype, but I wonder if this is any different among the grad student population? Yeah Rains is definitely the way to go if you want to be social. EV and Lyman are way more quiet and less fun. I think Munger is fine if you don't mind spending the money, but I personally think Rains is the best, as long as you don't need a huge amount of space in your apartment.
But as a resident I am biased. Sadly, it's not much different than undergrad I can't speak to Engineering, but at least within Biosciences, there are plenty of opportunities to meet people from within your school, but you wouldn't necessarily want to date those people - you take all the same classes and see them all the time because the campus and the student body are so small.
Mixers between schools are unfortunately pretty rare - in my handful of years here I have never had a real opportunity to spend quality time with non-biosciences students law, business, engineering, education, humanities, etc. However, depending on where you live, there may be opportunities outside of official events. Rains one of the grad housing complexes on campus is extremely social, with gatherings on most weekends. I didn't really have time for dating during my CS master's, nor did my CS friends.
My ME friends seemed to have plenty of time though, and IIRC their dating was about between other grad students and non-students. University communities never actively engineering romantic relations, so they're going to be organic and therefore very similar college-to-college. Unless someone can find me a counter-example i. I've never heard of this.
