Students at Georgia Southern University are labeled with all different kinds of stereotypes. Many years ago, GSU was ranked the number one STD university in the nation. In addition, given we are located in south Georgia, most people assume the school is made up of mostly rednecks. That one, i'll admit, is pretty accurate. There are all different kinds of students who attend classes here, but there are a lot of rednecks. We have lots of athletes, lots at fraternity guys and sorority girls, but once you look past the greek life, sports clubs, and social groups, there are a bunch of them. The first assumption I mentioned however, no longer is true. The STD rate here had dropped dramatically and the SAT requirements to get into GSU have risen just the same. We need to get more credit for that!
Very smart and arrogant
Georgia Southern is known as one of the biggest party schools in Georgia. I can admit that there are a lot of students who party all the time; however those are usually freshman who have never experienced freedom, and because of that many of them do not continue into their sophomore year. I am currently a freshman and I have never been caught up with partying. t is one of those things that if you don't do it then you don't notice it and it isn't a problem.
The typical stereotype of the students at the school is "partiers, drinkers, and greek life". This is semi-correct. By this, I mean that the stereotype is definitely alive down here; however, it's not prominent. If you don't want to be in the crowd, it's easy not to be. The student body is very diverse and there's something for everyone.
