The stereotype of Brandeis students is that they are a bunch of awkward Jews from the Northeast.
The awkward stereotype is true for some people, especially for the Freshman. People tend to grow a lot socially at Brandeis because they are around people for the first time who share their interests and quirkiness. However, Brandeis students are not socially inept.
The stereotype of Brandeis students all being Jewish is incorrect. Brandeis is a VERY diverse place, with people from a wide variety of backgrounds. As well, many of the students who are considered Jewish, are either not religious, or come from families where only parent is Jewish. Anyone who tells you non-Jewish students get ostracized or are made to feel isolated Brandeis are flat out wrong. White Christians are definitely a minority at Brandeis, since there are so many Asians and African American students, not to mention the sizable International population. I have noticed there aren't too many Hispanic students, but I could be wrong about that.
The stereotype of Brandeis students all being from Northeast is partly true. The majority of domestic students do come from the Northeast, but there are people from all over the country as well. Thankfully, the large number of International students give the school a worldly feel. If you aren't looking to be exposed to a variety of different cultures and people, Brandeis isn't the place for you.
- everyone is Jewish

Jewish, socially awkward, smart/overachievers
Brandeis students are often typecast as awkward, stuck-up, and square. We don't know how to throw parties, or attend them, and so we don't. Since our school population is by majority made up of people of Jewish descent or religious background, we are out-of-touch with mainstream Christian America, and spend our Fridays at prayer and Saturdays in our dorms wishing people wouldn't turn the lights off in the bathroom. And because Brandeis is a University of high academic standing, we generally draw the wealthy, socially-retarded, entitled types.
That they are all Jewish and awkward...
Everyone knows that Brandeis is a place for Jews. The stereotype is that all Brandeis students have dark curly hair that they can't manage, large noses, poor social skills, tiny hats, and very specific rules about food.

In general, Brandeis students are known for their enthusiasm to study which in other words might be called as being a nerd!! I guess if there is one similar characteristic i should name about 90 % of brandeis students that will for sure be their motivation to study hard and their high academic standards.. all students have a very high intellectual capacity, are aware of world issues..
Apparently, everyone at Brandeis is wicked unattractive. I don't really see it-- there are attractive people everywhere! You just have to know your type.

JEWISH. Awkward: people tend to joke that awkwardness is born at Brandeis. Smart, but not party animals. Plenty of JAPs (Jewish American Princess) and rich kids.
