Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

At SUNY New Paltz, there is a disproportionate ratio of female to male students, with girls making up around 64 percent of the school population. Many students, both girls and guys, are very attractive; they take care of themselves and dress fashionably.

There are also some students who don't really care about what they look like, and it shows. Regardless, hookups are frequent; everyone's just trying to have a good time. Most hookups start at parties or the bars.

Social Scene
For the most part, students are very outgoing and willing to make new friends. Parties are definitely easy to find out about, thanks to Facebook and fliers that are handed out around campus. Most kids are very welcoming and accepting. Be open, flexible, and kind, and you are guaranteed to make friends as you go!
Hookups or Relationships?
Definitely hookups, although many students pursue relationships (many of which seem successful!).
Dress Code
Think casual and free-spirited during the day, and a bit more classy and seductive at night. Example: wearing a comfortable V-neck and corduroys to class and changing into a button-down and jeans (for guys) or a skirt (for girls) to hit the bars.
