SeekingArrangement.com is a matchmaking service where beautiful young women (aptly called Sugar Babies) go to hook up with wealthy older men (Sugar Daddies) willing to foot their college tuition.
According to Brandon Wade, the site's CEO, the highest concentration of sugar babies is in the South, where the women know a thing or two about gold-digging. On Monday, he released a list of "the fastest sugar baby college" showing where the most coeds are using his service. Here it is:
1. Georgia State University
2. New York University
3. Temple University
4. University of Central Florida
5. University of Southern Florida
6. Arizona State University
7. Florida International University
8. University of Georgia
9. Indiana University
10. Texas State
11. Kent State University
12. Penn State
13. University of North Texas
14. Florida State University
16. Michigan State University
17. University of Ohio
18. Columbia University
19. University of Alabama
20. University of California Los Angeles
“While some may argue that these women are just using men for their own personal gain, I believe that they are proactive in pursuing a higher education," said Wade in a release picked up by Motherboard.
Noting the uptick in college tuition since 2007, he pointed out that the number of undergraduate sugar babies increased from about 38,000 in 2007 to nearly 180,000 in mid-2011.
