Would I fit in at NYU?

<p>I'm currently a junior and looking for colleges to apply to. I really want to go to college in NY and while I want to go to Columbia, I need other realistic options. I've heard NYU and Greenwich Village are havens for hippies, and no offense to anyone, but they just really annoy me. I'm a pretty preppy person and I don't want to be a small minority at NYU. Is it possible to enjoy NYU as someone who loves sports and is politically moderate and preppy?</p>

<p>Yes, NYU has a very diverse student body. We're not all hipsters.</p>

<p>As long as you don't stomp around saying, "I hate hippies" and you're generally nice, then yes, you too will find your niche at NYU. I know some very preppy people and they feel right at home at NYU.</p>

<p>Everyone fits in here, provided you have a reasonably "normal" personality.</p>
