4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The typical student at NYU is eccentric, but outgoing and kind. I think this is due to the fact that New York City accepts all types without judgement. The anonymity of such a large city adds to eccentricity as well.

Guys & Girls: They are all friendly and it helps to become friends with them when you have things in common

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: There are a lot of gay students here so the straight dating scene can be a little tricky! NYU is full of rich, privileged white kids so be ready for that culture. Otherwise, very liberal, very into politics/social issues, etc. Appearance is a big deal at NYU. You dress to impress, very hipster and fashionable.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: The students are very fashion forward and careful about their appearances. Relationships are very difficult considering much of the male population of the school is homosexual.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: I love the people I have met through NYU. But, just like anywhere, there are good eggs and bad eggs. It's all in who you decide to hangout with.

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.

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.
