Somewhat. It started as an Agriculture School and was referred to as C A & M but now has great veterinary and business programs. CSU has students from all social economic levels. Our Football and Basketball programs have not been performing well lately. However, our club spots such as, Lacrosse and Baseball compete against other varsity DI teams and beat them consistently. Our Volleyball program did amazing last season!
A majority of the class body is.
In most cases yes. We don't really drink that much more than other schools but it is prevelant. Most people are very into the outdoors, which is typical of most the people that reside in all of Colorado, its easy to be here. There are some cowboys and hicks but not as many as you would think.
This is true for a lot of people, but I wouldn't say that our school is WAY more outdoors oriented then a lot of the schools in the nation.
This stereotype is so far from true. In reality, it's an affordable education that is far above that of many universities.
Well there are not many minorities that attend CSU.
Umm... I don't really know how to decide that I only have my own account.
Even though it costs a lot to attend this university (especially out of state), people find alternative ways to pay for tuition and not everyone that attends this school can just pay for it out of their (or their parent's) pocket.
We are a state school, but a high acheiving one at that.
I do not believe this sterotype is accurate because if you were a student and meeting the people I have over the course of the past few months you would agree.
for some students, but obviousley not all
Not in the least.
There are hippies that go here, deffinitly not all the students are farmers/hiks, I know many epople from different states, and I think it is stupid that people are so for or against CU & CSU.
everyone is really laidback.
i don't see many farmers or cowboys.
and if cu is harder as far as classes i can't imagine how anyone would do well. i think there is no difference is which school is "smarter."
We do have a great Vet school and a very strong agriculture school. We also have a great business school (it has been nationally ranked) and political science program (with an awesome internship opportunity at the State House) as well as a diverse engineering college.
For part of the college. we also have a great wildlife biology program, engineering program, and others
the ag students appear to be very segmented
These stereotypes are not accurate that is why they are just stereotypes. Sure some buildings around campus were built long before I was born but what really matters is the education I receive inside of them. Secondly, I'm sure some students are lazy but none that I have met. I generally hang out with business students and they are always swamped with papers and group projects or even jobs. As far as the campus being spread out; that is just an opinion. I personally enjoy walking through the IM feilds with the mountains in the background.
I don't think we are a cowboy school but I do think we are more laid back compared to other colleges.
I think this stereotype is semi-accurate. As with any college you are going to have those that like to party and have a good time and with 26,000 students at CSU, it may seem like we are constantly partying. I know myself within my group of friends don't party that often at all. We like to go out to movies, go bowling, play games and have a good time. Yea, on occasion we'll have a party or something, but not every single night. We have a tradition of something called friday night dinners where anywhere from 10-20 of us will gather together, make some food and just hang out and eat and relax. Its the best thing to do on a friday night.

When you mention Fort Collins, people tend to think of a small college town full of outdoorsy, nature loving, granola eaters...but that's really true of Colorado as a whole. Fort Collins does have some great places to go hiking and be outdoors, but that's not all that's available.
I didnt really think there were stereotypes therefore, I cannot answer this question.
Yes; of course, it will depend on the individual student.
lots of farmers
Its true that there are farm students but that is because there is a great agriculture school here.
stereotypes are never really accurate because they generalize
people as a group and don't look at the exceptions.
Sometimes the stereotypes are accurate.
I think many students enjoy their college experience and are experiencing new things in their life, but I dont think CSU parties any more or less than any other college campus.
From my perspective, it is sort of true, since I am not full white, I have just noticed that there is a lot less diversity here than in Hawaii.
This stereotype is absolutely incorrect. There are students here that take pride in their studies.
some what, i actually don't know to many, there is a wide variety of people who go to school here
for some people, but not everyone
In some cases yes. But for those who are not, it is unfair.
the stereotype is about 50% accurate. most underage students choose not to drink, or only drink once a week.
I haven't found this to be true. Obviously it is a college so there are parties but I don't feel like there are excessive amounts.
Not at all, I mean there are some hippies, and plenty of the rich people but I found a lot of the people like me.
No, not necessarily
they do like to party but also work just as hard and there are plenty of students who do not have money
From what I can tell, yeah.
