Undergrad dating grad
As a member of the faculty and through their influence with other faculty (who may teach the student), the professor holds power over the student.Many schools look down on professor/student dating because of these reasons.Additionally, other students may perceive you as having an unfair advantage because you are, by nature, closer to at least one member of the faculty.If you're dating a professor whose classes you take, students may think you're getting special treatment or grades you haven't earned, no matter if you actually are. There are no attractive females in my program, as you would expect in STEM.However, I am a TA for a course and there are some cute Asian fob undergrads in it.
If that's the case at your institution, know that the answer to your dating question lies in the faculty and/or student handbook.
You could do some damage, too, as anything you share with your friends about your relationship could spread across campus and affect the professor's reputation or, worse, their job.
Ultimately, you both need to consider the rules and have a discussion about the potential risks of a relationship.
If you break up, you may still have to see each other regularly around campus or, worse, in class.
All those questions about fairness your relationship initially raised will remain, only you may now be at an unfair disadvantage, with your ex having power over your grades and reputation with other faculty.
