The American University of Paris is comprised of so many different types of people that there is no typical student. Usually, half of the guys dress really preppy, even though there are still skaters and other alternative styles. The majority of girls dresses up in really chic clothing and looks like they walked out of a magazine—although anyone can get by with the jeans-and-a-T-shirt look since clothing is mostly used as an extension of personality.
As for personality, most of the University is outgoing and very social. However, everyone you meet has their own distinct personality or something unique that can be linked solely to them. It is a diverse place with students that range from overly eccentric to dreamily down-to-earth. There are definitely a lot of people to get to know, but no one needs to try too hard because they'll probably be going around meeting other people themselves. There really is no typical AUP student since one student could have surprisingly different characteristics when it comes to different things.
