Website: Temple women near top in seeking ‘sugar daddies’

Posted: January 15, 2013

The website SeekingArrangement.com said today that Temple University is one of the top schools where students seek "sugar daddies" online to fund their education.

The website said that, nationally, it saw a 58 percent growth last year in female students trying to connect with men who will help pay their tuition.

It said that 268 female students from Temple had sought such arrangements in 2012. Given that Temple has more than 27,000 undergraduates, however, the figure represents less than one percent of the population.

SeekingArrangment.com said Penn State and the University of Penn has higher rates of sign-ups than Temple on a percentage basis.

"The population of college Sugar Babies in Pennsylvania has steadily increased every year, with Temple leading all major universities this year," site founder Brandon Wade said in a statement. "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."

SeekingArrangment.com bills itself as, "The Elite Sugar Daddy Dating Site for those Seeking Mutually Beneficial Relationships."

It matches "Sugar Daddies" with "Sugar Babies." There is also a category for "Sugar Mama," but it's unclear how popular those arrangements are.

The following is the list of top 20 fastest growing "Sugar Baby" schools, determined by number of new sign-ups in 2012, according to SeekingArrangement.com:
