Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

It is much easier for guys to find girls since there are more girls on campus. This, however, is not a free pass, since girls can be in relationships already or can be snooty. A lot of students are partiers, and if you are looking for something casual, this can be easy to find. If this is not your thing, it does not close you out from the social scene. There are people from all walks of life at Iona; it is just harder to meet them and may take a little longer to find them since there are more partiers.

It can also be tough to try to meet a certain person if you are not part of their group. Usually, all it takes is a mutual friend if you are having trouble, but the fact people have their own groups of friends makes it tough to interact with all kinds of students at Iona. For the most part, though, you can find what you are looking for if you are at the right place and just talk to the right person.

Social Scene
A lot of students are outgoing, but it does take time for some people to open up. Sometimes people stay in their group of friends and do not bother to interact with other groups of people, which can be a problem.
Hookups or Relationships?
Since it is a small school, the list of people to choose from is much smaller than a larger school. This can be a problem with finding the right person, just based on sheer numbers. If there are relationships, a person goes out with another person from home or at another school. There are hookups at Iona, but a person better be careful because the school is small, which means gossip travels fast.
Dress Code
For morning classes, students do not really seem to care how they look. This is especially true for the men. For younger students, they usually wear something Iona-related, and older students tend to no longer wear Iona stuff. During the day and for night classes, students dress a lot nicer and do look attractive. Students dress well for parties, too, and tend to want to look their best in front of their peers.
