NYU students are ‘hipsters’, says Spotify data on college listening habits (Cornell likes to ‘chill’)

NYU

Spotify released the listening data for students at universities throughout America, and as the college section of USA Today points out, NYU ranked #1 in what Spotify considers “hipster” music:

We don’t need Spotify data to tell us NYU is cool. But sure enough, the data confirms that NYU students embody their school’s urban artsiness in their musical choices, listening to more “hipster” categorized music and slowcore playlists than other students around the country. Indie rock rules NYU’s most distinctive listening patterns, with students streaming more James Blake, Mac Demarco and the Strokes — relative to other schools.

The full list, which only includes the 40 big schools who listened to the most music on Spotify, can be browsed at Spotify.com (maybe Purchase, Bard, Pratt, Wesleyan, and Rutgers are all RDIO users!)
