What is the stereotype of students at your school? Is this stereotype accurate?
Because the campus (and student body) is so large, it's difficult to really say there's one overarching stereotype. However, if I had to think of some, I'd settle for either sports-nuts or alcoholics.
UConn's athletic department (particularly basketball) is quite impressive. With teams ranging from varsity, club, to intramural, there's no shortage of opportunities to participate in sports, and as such many students do. There is also a large portion of the student body that follows carefully with the university's games against other schools. However, there are students like myself who do neither... So in my personal experience, I'd say that stereotype is as true as you want to make it.
There is a similar situation with alcohol here at UConn. The campus is pretty far from... everything and unless you have a car you're kind of limited to its borders. While there is a lot to do on campus (from sports to the USG-run Late Night), its relative isolation does lead to a lot of partying. However, this stereotype also depends on the people you spend your time with--so in my case, alcohol is not really a part of my student life. But I will admit, on weekends my dorm does tend to be a bit... lively with the drunken escapades of some of my classmates. :P
