UCLA dubbed the 6th most hipster campus in nation

UCLA recently snagged a place in College Magazine’s ranking of the Top 10 Most Hipster Campuses, coming in at No. 6, right above sister campus UC Berkeley. New York University secured the top spot.

Wondering what a hipster is? Check out the video above to find out how UCLA students define the term.

According to the College Magazine article, hipsters are “art loving, flannel-wearing, vegan-eating youths” who relish a bit of witty banter once in a while.

Criteria for the ranking included the number and quality of: Sustainable and Vegan-Friendly Eateries, Nearby Cities, Liberal Arts and Fine Arts Programs, Fashion Schools, Nearby Boutiques and Thrift Stores, and Radio Stations.

UCLA met the criteria on shopping options, vegan-friendliness and strong liberal arts and fine arts programs, according to the article.
