3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Not the prime pick of the school. Many guys are very full of themselves and dull, but there are a few diamonds in the rough that are smart and sincere.

3 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: Im not really one to be in college to make freinds, but the few I do talk to are okay. Most of the people seem to be fairly freindly.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Everyone is friendly. Great diversity among student body!

4 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: They all seem very focused and friendly. Very easy to start conversations with or receive help from.

Guys & Girls: I commute to campus so I am rarely able to view students on campus give a fair rating.

For the most part, guys and girls at FAU are laid-back and friendly. While the town is known for ritzy, snobby people, students at FAU are generally the opposite of that stereotype. Everyone wants to make friends and meet new people. Most guys on campus have that surfer/skater style going on. Some girls are cool, while others wear too much makeup and wobble to class in heels (these women are sometimes called "Boca Brats").

If it's 80 degrees and humid outside and you're walking to class and you see a girl dressed to the nines in high heels, she is probably trying way too hard. There are many good-looking, and some not so good-looking, students of both sexes. It's pretty easy to find someone to get along with at this school.

Social Scene

Hookups or Relationships?

Dress Code
During the day, girls mostly wear shorts and tank tops or dresses, and guys wear T-shirts and shorts. For nightlife, guys typically wear a nice Ed Hardy or Polo shirt with jeans, and girls wear a beaded or flashy tank top and jeans. It is usually in the 80s around here, so students dress in cool, laid-back clothes.
