2 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: I have had zero partners in my time here.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The students are very diverse and interesting. People can't rely long on stereotypes that we have been fed with because chances are they might be contradicted the minute they begin talking. Everyone has their own style and go with the flow of their lives, but are also able to hang out with others and have a fun time. I guess it's like a little human civilization of its own, there are relationships, friendships, etc.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: NYU students seem to be very independent, driven, into their education, and passionate. It can be a bit overwhelming, but everyone seems to be looking to achieve something.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: The social make-up of NYU is pretty great, as it is very diverse - not just culturally or ethnicity-wise, but diverse in the sense of interests and personality make-ups.

Guys & Girls: Everyone seems to be an individual at my school. Most girls and even boys come to class dressed really nice, basically most students put effort into their appearance.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

While the joke is that the “NYU girl” standard uniform is black leggings, a baggy shirt-dress, and a latte in hand, ladies at NYU represent every fashion genre and are an attractive bunch. Overall, NYU women navigate the city streets and social scenes with confidence and ease. Those NYU girls that choose to abandon the glamorous single life and all the benefits it affords them, like free entrance to clubs, often choose a partner outside of NYU. With a whole city of men to choose from, NYU ladies often date beyond the campus sphere.

The three main categories for NYU males are gay, jackass, and taken—in that order of likelihood. Many NYU girls complain that there are no straight guys at NYU, but the straight guys beg to differ. Many of them take advantage of the fact that the male-to-female ratio is in their favor, and most have no plans of settling in to a long-term relationship any time soon. The other half are happily committed and not tempted by the life of debauchery that they could easily have.

Birth Control Available?
The NYU Student Health Center offers all forms of birth control, from pills and patches to shots and free condoms. As long as you either have an exam at the health center or send your personal records to them, you can have prescriptions filled at the campus pharmacy. Prices depend on the type of method you choose. Emergency contraception is also available free of charge.

Social Scene
Pretty much every type of personality is represented at NYU, so once you become situated, it shouldn't be hard to find your own group. Once you've bypassed that initial obstacle, there are a lot of fun-loving partiers to be found at NYU. Or if you're more of the study group social butterfly, there are plenty of intellectuals to discuss theories with. In fact, many of the students at NYU love to hear themselves talk, so there is never a shortage of stimulating conversation.
Hookups or Relationships?
The girls at NYU often find themselves frustrated with the lack of straight guys, and thus, venture into the wilds of NYC or other universities to find a mate. Some are in relationships, but a lot of girls commiserate over the lack of guys and date around. Guys also tend to prefer dating or hookups to long-term relationships, although many girls say it seems that all the decent straight guys at NYU have girlfriends. For whatever reason, you won't find many couples in which both partners attend NYU.
Dress Code
Nope. Trust me-you can wear whatever you want. Really.
