Back in the day, Hunter was an all-female school. The demographic has changed since the College became coed in 1964, though it hasn’t quite evened out yet. Nearly every female student is prepared for the 7-to-3 ratio of women to men at the school. This disparity has created an environment for women that can be very comfortable, though it’s not doing women any favors if they are looking for a mate. The number of guys on campus seems to be in an upswing, though. The ratio isn’t blaringly apparent when walking around campus, but it can be if you happen to be in a classroom comprised entirely of girls.
All types of personalities go to Hunter; it's truly a diverse school. Hipster, grunge, preppy, nerdy—whatever you go for, you’re likely to find it. The campus leans toward having a lot of attractive students, either conventionally or unconventionally good looking. Once students leave 68th Street, their lives are pretty much private; everyone is too wrapped up in their own lives to care too much about everyone else’s.
