3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There are definitely more girls than guys at Hunter. Girls are usually very friendly and will help you out with any questions. I think what distracts people to get together an have more fun together is individual responsibilities such as jobs, babysitting, commute, etc. Otherwise, I think everyone for the most part would be good friends.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There are more girls than guys, so dont come here expecting to find you future husband! SOME of the guys are cute and SOME of the girls are cute. It would be nice to have more eye candy, but we cant have it all. If you want to see attractive people...and possibly meet some attractive people you would need to go out of hunter for that and trek around the city. Theres literally 1 cute boy on every block.

3 College Junior

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.

Social Scene
Hunter's social scene usually involves students hanging out around campus in between classes or right after classes. The College has a large commuter population, so a lot of students only come to school for classes and leave immediately after. The College tends to be lively in the evenings, which are when parties, plays, and other club events are held. It is relatively easy to make friends at Hunter through classes, joining clubs, or just hanging out at parties the Undergraduate Student Government often holds.
Hookups or Relationships?
A lot of Hunter students date, although it's relatively hard to be a couple in a commuter school. Unlike a traditional school, you're unlikely to have a random hookup anywhere on campus, although there are some cool spots for making out.
Dress Code
Hunter does not have a dress code; however, because most students have to travel to class, they tend to dress decently or in whatever way they deem appropriate. Nobody really cares what you come dressed in, and there is not much pressure to come dressed in a certain way.
