no. i think most of the students really care about school
Yes and No
There was one class where there were only one Asian, one Latino and one African American.
I'd say they're pretty accurate for the Agricultural School and Liberal Arts Students but those aren't the only colleges on campus
No, some people fall into some of those catagories, many do not.
Yes, for the most part. Some of them don't think there's anything else to do other than drink themselves retarded.
No stereotypes can be very hurtful, and no one should assume they are true.
i dont think so. most of the people really care about school
I would say no considering how many people attend this University and how many people actually do party.
No they are not! Some people are but not all
Not at all
i think the parties are definitely there, but it's nothing major, it's not the biggest aspect of csu. i'm not in greek life, but i think there are some sororities/fraternities that get bad reputations for nothing.
No, there are so many diverse people on campus.
No this is not true at all
I feel that these stereotypes are very untrue. It smells here from time to time depending on the wind direction, however there is a lot to do and Fort Collins is HUGE. It is so big I haven't even seen all of it. There are a lot of cowboys here due to our outstanding agriculture school. A lot of people came here by choice, yes it is true some, it was their second choice but now they are here, they love it!!!!
NOT AT ALL! We have a killer Engineering school and Business School, our Vet school is up there with Top ones in the nation. Boulder is just to in to themselves to realizes these stereotypes are NOT true.
For the most part yes.
No not at all
They can be but as always there are many, many exceptions
I dont think so
CSU is just as good as CU if not better, Yes the students are more real, and every college has drinking in large amounts by parts of the student body
No of course not. These sterotypes were created by CU students.
No, CSU is known for it's undergraduate vet program and there are a lot of majors.
They are kind of accurate. A couple of our teams are good, and not everyone parties because their are alot of fun things to do.
Yes, I'd say so.
These stereotypes are incredibly accurate - everyone seems to be outside working out, skiing, hiking, running, or doing anything they can as soon as the weather permits it. Otherwise, many students go to the rec center or to rock climbing gyms during the winter months.
I think that this is total crap.
To an extent the drinking stereotype is true. It is definitely easy to make friends with people who have houses and go to garage parties there. It is also easy to avoid the party scene, although this is coming from someone in science who also lived in the science dorm. My levels of peer pressure were significantly different here.
Absolutely not, Agriculture is an important part of CSU's history and a vibrant part of the student body, but we are from all walks of life with interests from Fine Art to Medical Technology and everything in between. We are all CSU!, believe me I was there for six years!
Drinking: Ok, so here's the deal. If you want it, you can find it. If it's not your style, you'll find there are plenty of other things to do, and plenty of people who will do them with you (sober).
Colorado as farm country: Are you kidding me? I may be biased, because I grew up in the state, but for the most part, we're pretty normal. Yeah, you can find a rodeo in the summer, and if you go to the right part of town, you'll see people who own horses...that's about it.
Colorado's winter climate: It snows...periodically throughout the winter. One of the best kept secrets is that we have 50-60 degree days in December through March. However, we also experience blizzards in March and April. As far as weather goes, the general rule is that it's unpredictable around here...and that's why we love it!
CSU used to be only agriculture, so people sometimes assume that most students here study natural resources, but in reality a large percentage of students study liberal arts, engineering, natural sciences, etc.
there are quite a few students with an agricultural background, therefore, quite a few students do come from families without vast income
No. CSU has progressed to be a diverse and well-rounded school, and its students occupy much more than just Agricultural majors.
Most of these are not accurate. CSU is known for the Vet school, has groundbreaking research taking place on its campus, and does have many students who care about the environment or could spend every waking moment outdoors (the "outdoorsy" types).
No, we may be behind the times, but we are not all hicks. We definitely have people who are interested in ranching and farming and horses and such, but they still aren't necessarily the stereotypical "hicks".
It does seem true that CSU is predominately white compared to some other colleges. The other stereotypes are not true. There are a lot of of other organizations to be apart of besides Greek life.
Only if you want it to be I think it's up to the student.
No. Most people I know just wanted to quality education at a somewhat affordable price.
I do not have any experience or interaction with the sororities/fraternities so this question is N/A.
to an extent, there are a lot of parties but there is a lot of other things to do if you dont want to party. the school doesnt seem very diverse, at least what ive seen of it.
