On Being a Single Female

On-Being-A-Single-Female

The ladies of WUSM. Always fierce.

Who would ever want to be in a relationship in medical school? While all of your couple friends with couple nicknames are sitting at home, studying MAP Kinase Kinase Kinase and discussing proper percussion techniques, you could be out on the town accepting drinks, dancing and canoodling with the sexy singles of St. Louis! Some of these fine folks may be in your medical school class, but if you feel like it would be too awkward to dissect the perineum with your love interest, or if he or she has moved on to the other predominantly female graduate school classes, have no fear! There are plenty of eligible young people around campus in the physical therapy, business and law school programs who will cater to your every desire and serve as excellent SPs (standardized patients) on whom you can practice your physical exam skills. But, if classy professional students aren’t your thing, you can always find some hidden gems who will buy you Billy Buckets at 3 a.m. at the Annex or twirl you romantically under the disco balls and purple lights at Talayna’s. So ladies, the choice is obvious. Being a single female at WUSM is sexy, adventurous, and a great way to get free drinks … and free pizza.
