When it comes time to select a major or if you have questions about college life, you have a built-in resource of older girls you can go to for advice or mentoring.

But clearly, younger guys have some appeal (we have at least a little faith in Demi Moore), so what’s behind the cougar craze?

Hilary Ricigliano, a sophomore at Syracuse University, loves dating her younger man.

These younger “cougars in training” have very specific names.

Barkley says a woman in her 20's is a kitten, a woman in her 30's is a puma, and a woman over the age of 60 is a panther.

All schools have a different method of selecting girls for a sorority depending on the intensity of their Greek system.

But typically there will be a "rush week" which gives prospective sorority gals the chance to visit the different houses, meet the members, and get to know the basics of each sorority (what they stand for, their role on campus, etc).If you’re a guy who appreciates an older woman though, no need to fly to Hollywood, there are cougars prowling your very own college campus. Fayr Barkley, a Human Behavior Research Expert and cougar expert, typically, a cougar is a woman who is over the age of 40, who dates a man 7 or more years her junior.“But what we are seeing is more and more women in their 20's calling themselves cougars because they relate to the confidence that a cougar woman has who ‘knows what she wants and goes for it,’” Barkley says.Regardless of which type of kitty a woman may be, Barkley says any woman with the right attitude can be a cougar.“A woman who is well defined, strong, flexible, confident and goes after what she wants but can still remain a lady, is worthy of the cougar name,” Barkley said.“Me going through college first also helped him better prepare for when he headed off to school. For Hilary and Al, like many cougar-couples, “age doesn't even matter.” Hilary says, despite his younger age, Al often behaves like the elder of the two.
