I would say that almost everyone is greek. I don't know, that's the only thing I noticed stereotype wise.
There aren't really too many stereotypes at our school because each group is pretty diverse with their members, and you will see many different cultures and types of students at our school. The school has adult learners and is also handicap accessible, whether it is a mental or a physical disability. Things on campus are adjusted to the settings that the students prefer as long as they are reasonable.
Like all college's there are different walks of life, diversity, ethnic backgrounds, and multiple views of life. This is true for Kennesaw State University. However, there are a few things that many of the students here at Kennesaw have in common. Many students like to party. During the week they complain about all the homework they have to do, how the professors act like jerks, how they lost their favorite purse or missed their tv show and then on the Thursday nights it is party, party, party. This is true for a certian type of students. Other students are more disciplined. They will answer questions in class, study, but yet go and exercise or go to a good game or go dancing to maintain a balanced life. Ultimately, there are many different stereotypes at Kennesaw. The question is which one do you want to hang out with or avoid?
The students at Kennesaw State University are entirely too diverse for a specific stereotype. They are well known for several academic programs such as nursing, business, and arts.
The stereotype of students at Kennesaw State University is kids who want to transfer to another school, along with commuter students. These stereotypes are accurate because the majority of students will transfer to another school like UGA or GT or GSU, because they could get accepted into Kennesaw but not into the other schools. The other stereotype is commuter students, who tend to be older than an average-aged student. This tends to leave campus a bit empty on the weekends, because not many people live on campus. A lot of party kids also go to my school, but none of the parties are ever on campus because its a dry campus and no one wants to hang out there.
One of the common misconceptions about Kennesaw State University is that the majority of the student body are people ages 40 and up. Once, my friends' mother quoted "KSU is the retirement home of Georgia State". Although i will say that there is a population of "older" students present at KSU, our population contains a good mix of all ages. As a previous Resident Assistant, I dealt with many underclassmen and upperclassmen, all of whom were in my age range of 18-25.
The stereotype of students at KSU is that we are not as smart as students who attend other colleges. This is not true. We are an ever expanding student body with many intellegent students.
There are many common stereotypes of different types of people who attend Kennesaw State University. All of the above pertain to certain groups of people. However, these stereotypes are generally inaccurate. Most people who attend this school are hardworking individuals who are here to get there education in hopes of a secure career in the future.
The stereotype of students at Kennesaw State University is that people who attend KSU are not as intelligent as people at "more prestigious" universities. The assumptions are that people only attend KSU because they did not succeed at their previous university, or because they are trying to raise their GPA so that they can transfer to another university. This stereotype is not true, as is evidenced by myself. I did attend a university before coming to KSU, but I simply did not like the other university, and I wanted the diversity of students and degrees that KSU has to offer. I am also not here to raise my GPA so that I can be accepted into another college; My GPA is high, and I plan on graduating from KSU. I know many other intelligent students at KSU who are here because KSU is a great school that is affordable and reputable.
The common sterotypes that exist at Kennesaw State University among the student body seems to be an every growing jock oriented student populace. While there are many different types of students that represent a microcosm of American society.
There are numerous stereotypes at our school, but the majority includes students that are in Greek organizations.
There are a wide variety of kids at my college. It is more of a college for people right out of their high schools who don't want to or can't travel far. I've heard my school called a party school with a lot of people involved in sports and Greek life. I'd say this is not accurate. There is a very wide variety of people who attend.
The stereotype is that it is a simple school for students from middle class families who come here because they are either too lazy or not smart enough to go to another school. However, I am a 4.0 student and a Nursing major. I have a met a lot of people who are neither lazy or ignorant. I can honestly say that there is a lot of hard working students here who came to college to succeed.
I would say that they are a mixture of overachievers and underachievers with very little in-between. Some students work really hard to get good grades while others put down those who work really hard to get good grades. Those others are happy turning in their 15-page paper that they wrote the night before it was due. However, those who work really hard care about what they are doing and what they are going to do in the future.
People say that KSU is a party school, but it is not
A lot of the students who attend KSU are commuters because they can't afford to live on campus or have families to take care of. But you should befriend all, not just people your own age, but all different kind of students.
At Kennesaw, it seems to me that a stereotype could be the "not-partiers." I'm sure there ARE some parties going on, but I haven't really heard about them..... and at 2 1/2 years of being here, I don't specifically remember ever seeing alcohol.
Some people stereotype that students at KSU aren't very smart because the college isn't as hard to get into as other colleges. However, this isn't true at all!
I believe the stereotype at Kennesaw State University is a plethora. I don't believe that there is one specific stereotype that the majority of students follow.
The stereotype of students is generally local students and those thinking about staying long enough to transfer to GA Tech or UGA. In reality, we are made up of generally local students from around Atlanta, but the majority of the students decide to stay at KSU after they see how awesome it is!
There are definitely more frat kids than anything, which also means plenty of sorority girls to go along with them. There are also many of the skateboarding people that go way to fast on the way to class.
