If I were you, I'd focus on dating slightly older undergrads juniors and seniors along with people outside of the university.
Conditions and restrictions apply. The best thing that can happen? Boring with no way to redeem it in most people's eyes, and completely opaque to anyone without an MS in math. I have zero problem going after undergraduates lol, and it's not that I haven't tried.

This is an archived post. Most people are there with their group and aren't looking to meet anyone new at least not anyone they intend to see after leaving the bar. Talking to people is an art. Even more so if you're in the South. Most of my friends are in the same department, male, and pretty much in the same predicament lol.
