ORLANDO, Fla. - The University of Central Florida took the No. 2 spot on SeekingArrangement's list of the "Fastest Growing Sugar Babies Schools" in the nation.

More than 2.5 million of the 20 million users of the sugar daddy dating site are American college students who receive an average monthly allowance of $3,000 from their partners, according to the study. Of that total, UCF students take more than 1,000 of those spots.

A sugar daddy is defined by Merriam-Webster as "a well-to-do usually older man who supports or spends lavishly on a mistress, girlfriend or boyfriend."

Here is the list of top schools for having the most sugar babies.

  2. University of Central Florida with 296 new sign-ups and a total of 1,068 students.

"Over the past three administrations, the overall cost of attending college has more than doubled. Students are tired of hearing politicians campaign on the importance of education, job growth and opportunity just to leave promises on the convention floor," Brandon Wade, founder and CEO of SeekingArrangement, said. "The numbers speak for themselves. Of the 4 million students on SeekingArrangement, more than 62 percent attend college in the U.S."

With a national total of student loan debt more than $1.52 trillion, 1 in 4 Americans contribute to that amount, according to SeekingArrangement. While most students will not pay off their student loan debt until their 40s using traditional means, 2.5 million students in America seek sugar daddies and sugar mommas to pay off their education debt earlier.
