One of Pop Crunch’s all time most popular pieces was the Hottest Student Bodies 2008: The 50 Best Colleges Ranked By Looks. It was so popular that we’ve decided to make it an annual tradition, coinciding each year with March Madness, a time when everyone’s minds are on college sports. We’ve spent countless hours updating galleries, going over feedback from last year’s list, and poring over photos of hot college co-eds in an effort to bring you a killer list for 2009. We think it’s an improvement over 2008, hopefully you’ll agree.
2008 Ranking: 47
Featuring one of the more female friendly mascots in the country, this ACC school has a deep roster of hot girls who are probably a little more into having fun than their counterparts at other schools in the area like Georgetown or Johns Hopkins.
49. Washington State
2008 Ranking: 41
Some of the best tailgating on the west coast, and also featuring some of the hottest cheerleaders, Wazzu just sneaks onto our 2009 list.
2008 Ranking: 39
Some of the cutest girls in the world live in Iowa City. It must be all the corn and good solid midwestern breeding.
47. Mississippi State
2008 Ranking: NR
Mississippi State gets overshadowed by Ole Miss, (and probably deservedly so), but that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty to look at in Starkville. Bonus points for ridiculously hot cheerleaders.
46. Michigan State
2008 Ranking: 27
Michigan State takes a bit of a tumble in this year’s rankings, what with the state of Michigan facing down the economic apocalypse and all, but there are still lots of cute girls in Lansing. Lots to choose from on this campus, with 45k+ undergrads in total.
2008 Ranking: NR
I have never heard much about Delaware in general, but reader response last year made us realize we made a mistake leaving off the uh … Fightin’ Blue Hens. Yes, their mascot is a chicken, but the hot girls here make up for it. The girl above won College Humor’s hottest co-ed in America contest a couple of years back, we accidentally had her listed under North Carolina last year (she’s wearing a UNC hat), but we’ve corrected things in 2009. Better late than never!
44. Oregon State
2008 Ranking: 46
Featuring the 2007 Playboy Playmate of the Year, Oregon State has lots of fit, nature loving girls that make the trip to Corvallis well worth it.
2008 Ranking: 31
We tend to lean towards big state schools that have thousands and thousands of attractive girls to choose from in our Hottest Student Bodies compilations, but there’s something to be said for the wealthier private schools as well. Rich, snobby Southern girls might not be your thing, but if they are then Vanderbilt is exactly the place you’re looking for.
42. North Carolina
2008 Ranking: 28
One of the strongest public universities in the country, UNC also has a lot to offer on the female front. All the super nerdy North Carolina girls go to Duke, so Chapel Hill isn’t a bad place to be if you’re looking for girls who know how to have a good time outside of the classroom.
2008 Ranking: 34
Colorado is the place to go if you’re interested in snow bunnies – it has one of the largest and most active ski clubs in the country. One of the more beautiful settings in the country outside of coastal beach centric schools attracts all kinds of hotties.
