Dating site: UIC students want their Sugar Daddies

January 14, 2013|By Adam Lukach, @lucheezy | RedEye

The University of Illinois at Chicago has seen its activity on SeekingArrangement.com, a website that offers "mutually beneficial arrangements" to "sugar daddies/mommies" and "sugar babies" seeking to fulfill each other with their company, skyrocket recently.

UIC's site participants rose by 111 percent in 2012, compared to 58 percent overall in the U.S. The school is now the 54th most active university on the site. The highest-placing Midwestern university is Indiana University in ninth place. According to a press release, the average college sugar baby can receive more than $3,000 per month due to their arrangements from the website.

"The population of college Sugar Babies in Chicago has steadily increased every year, with UIC leading all major universities in the Chicago-land area," said Brandon Wade, the site's founder. "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."
