The ratio of men to women on campus may have an important effect on the college dating scene. As contributor Jon Birger argues in this article, schools where women significantly outnumber men tend to have an unhealthy culture of casual hookups, while male-heavy schools are more likely to foster traditional relationships.

Here are the top 25 colleges, based on Money's Best Colleges rankings, where at least 50% of the student body is male. Enrollment data is from fall 2013, the latest year available from the National Center for Education Statistics, and we screened out a couple schools where men represent more than two-thirds of the student body.
