If you talk here, they pick you up and they carry you.

The NYU Students are characters in Girl Meets World. They are the young people Riley and Maya encounter, when the girls decide to secretly follow Josh Matthews to a late night party at New York University. While Riley immediately begins to fit within the collegiate atmosphere, Maya is swiftly crushed to see Josh already fraternizing with two attractive co-eds in their dorm room. However, with her new found confidence, Riley shoves Maya into the small gathering. Surprisingly, the older girls greet Maya with sympathetic ears, and actually encourage the lovelorn girl to express her feelings for Josh, and force the youngest Matthews brother to consider Maya in a new light. The group of individuals make their initial appearance in Girl Meets the Tell-Tale-Tot.


Harriet is a member of the NYU chapter of the Gamma Gamma Nu sorority, who instantly bonds with Riley. Harriet seems very peppy, energetic, and a bit gossipy. Harriet also appears quite gullible, as she believed Andrew when he broke up with her by claiming to have died.

Gamma Gamma Nu Song

We are the sisters of Gamma Gamma Nu,
We are humble, but we're better than you.

We help people everywhere,
But we still love our hair.

'Cause we're Gamma Gamma Nu!  Woooo!
