What are the most popular student activities/groups?
NYU is super gay, which means our theater groups are awesome and our sports teams are sort of irrelevant. Sometimes stereotypes are true.
If you are a single, heterosexual female at NYU, expect to not find a boyfriend in class. Some girls do, but they are few and far between. The ratio of straight boys to straight girls is terrifying. Factor in the amount of boys that come to college with girlfriends back home, and that Beach Boys song "Two girls for every boy" starts sounding like a really welcome change. Because your odds are, in actuality, much, much worse.
On the other hand, if you are a single, heterosexual male at NYU, take your pick buddy. There are seriously thousands of girls who will date you. Your odds just shot through the roof.
