2 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Girls are gorgeous. Guys are not. There are like 20 total attractive guys where basically 3/4 of the female population look like models. Not enough guys to go around and the ones that are decent are gross.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

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
Students are fairly social. They wouldn't normally just approach you on campus, but they are generally willing to make new friends and include everyone.
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.
