The school doesn't have a set stereotype, which I find is really nice. The only stereotype we have is for being a VERY good university. Students take their work very seriously, but they do like to have fun on the weekends. Not too many druggies (you'll get a few at every school), there's the athletes of course (we're D1! :) ). We also have frats but they're less than 10% of the school population but they're also a great way of getting involved.
Many people assume that most people are either from a suburb of Milwaukee or from the suburbs of Chicago (mostly North or West Suburbs). For the most part this is true, but there are definitely people who come for all over the states. Also, many people think that most students are rich or have rich parents. Again, I guess this is the case, but I am pretty sure that those kind of students can be found on any college campus.
Some people say that Marquette students are all the same, that they wear similar clothes, think similar things, etc. Also, there's the perception that we're all rich kids whose parents pay for everything.
