The Hottest College Guy in the World: Our Search for the ULTIMATE Campus Cutie

Posted -


As the #1 online community for college women with a team of 3,000+ student experts at more than 200 schools spanning the country and overseas, we’d like to think that we know a thing or two about good-looking guys.

Over the past few months, collegiettes swooned over several nominees in our search for The Hottest College Guy in America, The Hottest University Guy in the UK, and The Hottest University Guy in Canada. Ultimately, we separated the men from the boys and only three eligible cuties remained. 

The Starting Candidates


Over the past weeks, collegiettes cast their votes and waited anxiously to find out who would take home the crown. The journey for the ultimate cutie came to an end quickly and The Hottest University Guy in CanadaAvi R. from McGill University, was sent home first leaving the two Matts to battle it out for the ultimate Her Campus Cutie title. 

Now, collegiettes across America and overseas have spoken.

First named America's Hottest College Guy, a very special cutie from Virginia Commonwealth University is your winner of the ultimate Her Campus Campus Cutie title. We are proud to announce that Matt Mitchell is the Hottest College Guy in the World, Her Campus's Ultimate Campus Cutie. 

In addition to some outstanding HC swag and a personalized trophy (yes, an old-school trophy!), Matt will receive a new LAPTOP! Yes, that’s right, the Hottest College Guy in the World will be accessorized with a new HP Pavilion dm1z with AMD Processor.

As far as the other two candidates are concerned,  we commend their efforts and honor their finalist standings in the competition. In spite of hearts crushed and tears shed, only Matt from VCU can be The Hottest College Guy in the World.
