Website: Growing number of UO students seek 'Sugar Daddies'

      EUGENE, Ore. - Students are turning to their elders for help coping with the cost of higher education - and they aren't stopping with mom and dad.

      They are looking for a little sugar.

      The website said the University of Oregon is one of the fastest growing "Sugar Baby Schools" - institutions with students who trade companionship for help with the cost of paying for school.

      "A sugar baby is an attractive, ambitious and goal-oriented individual who has a lot to offer," the web company, which claims 2 million members, said. "He or she is generally younger and is looking to meet wealthy, successful and generous people or benefactors who are willing to pamper and offer financial assistance or gifts in return for their friendship or companionship. 44 percent of our overall membership are female college students."

      Oregon ranked 75th on a list of "fastest growing" sugar baby schools in the website's network.

      Some of Oregon's Pac-12 rivals scored even sweeter spots on the sugar baby list: Arizona State University (No. 6), UCLA (No. 20), Cal (No. 38) and USC (No. 56).

      The website started in 2006.

      "Both parties browse the website, just like a regular dating website, to find someone who matches their needs," teh company explained. "Usually during the first meeting both the Sugar Baby and Daddy negotiate the terms of their mutually beneficial relationship, which includes schedules, expectations, and background. In exchange, Sugar Babies provide companionship or friendship."
