When I tell people that I go to Ohio University, the first thing EVERYONE says is "OOOHHH, so your a party girl!? Is that why you chose to go there.... because it's a party school???" Another thing is that everyone assumes the people that go to Ohio are hippies. Is that even logical?! To assume an entire schools population is made up of tree huggers (no offense to hippies) in just ignorant.
I think the biggest stereotype is that "we pregame harder than you party"! And when you tell anybody where you go to school the first thing they say is "ohhh isn't that a top 3 party school? what are you going there to study.. alcohol??"
they all drink alot and smoke alot of pot
They drink a lot.
That we're a major party school.
They all just party all week long. Binge drinking is the way to go.
I think the biggest stereotype about Ohio University is that it's a major party school and that all the students drink.
It is mostly known as a "party school"
Preps, Asians, freaks, jocks,
1.) All students drink at OU.
2.) Halloween is a crazy weekend.
3.) The only thing to do on the weekends is party.
People seem to think that the only thing to do at OU is get drunk. The idea of OU being nothing but a party school is out there and probably the best known thing about the school.
The only thing here to do is party and were all drunks!
Partiers, Laid Back, Stoners
party school, not really academically focused,
Stereotypes - Partyers, Hippies, Ecological Minded
That OU is a big party school and so are its students.
One of the biggest stereotypes about Ohio University is it being a party school. Sure we have been number two on the list of biggest party schools but that is not all the we are about. We do have fun, but we also work hard.
Being in southern Ohio, there are a lot of stereotypes about the students who choose to come to Ohio University: that we like to drink a lot, that we're not so bright, or that all we care about are the parties.
They drink and party a lot.
we drink alot
DRINK ALL THE TIME, DONT WORK HARD, COUNTRY FOLKS, WHITE
we are all partiers
Many people stereotype Ohio University as the "party school." People view Ohio students as a bunch of kids who love to drink.
-All Ohio students are partiers.
-There's nothing to do in Athens but drink.
That everyone is drunk and all that Ohio students do is party.
Ohio is known to be a party school and its students are known to party hard.
drunks, average students
The major stereotype about Ohio University is that we're one of the biggest, if not THE biggest (I believe there was some sort of vote on that at one point), party school in the country. Supposedly the students here get drunk just about every night of the week. Part of this comes from the annual Halloween party on Court Street, which I've heard is one of the largest block parties in the nation, somewhere up there close to Mardi Gras or something (which definitely sounds far-fetched, in my opinion). And I suppose that because of our party school rep, we are also perceived as being a somewhat less than intelligent, or, to be more blunt, stupid.
Another, separate reputation we have is that Athens is one of the most haunted places, because of The Ridges, which used to be an insane asylum and which is now a part of the campus.
We drink a lot, we're big party people, OU is a party school
That we drink all the time
Huge drinking culture at Ohio University. Stereotype of a "party school" and that everyone drinks.
Ohio: Hicks, farmers etc.
Ohio University: we drink all of the time, don't care about school
We're farm people.
We have a weird accent.
I think the one think that OU is known for is being really laid back and liberal politically.
It's a party town with a whole bunch of drunks in it.
A lot of people see OU as a huge party school- all play and no work.
That all we do is party
Students drink a lot, and Ohio University is just a party school
Many people belive that OU is the home of rowdy drunks or wealthy preppy students. However, this is simply not the case.
They aren't that smart and party all of the time
That all we do is drink. And it's the only reason why some people come here.
They drink. They're drunk. They know how to party.
The biggest stereotypes about Ohio and Ohio students are that we are nothing more than a bunch of people who like to party and do little else, especially when it comes to schoolwork.
Ohio University has recieved a very strong reputation as a 'party school' over the years. We are known for our Halloween party up on the main drag, Court Street. This Halloween extravaganza has been known to double or even triple our on campus population of about 8,000 for the weekend and causes all kinds of stories to be created. People will come from all over the region for our Halloween event and look forward to it every year. Many freshman come to OU for the parties. Another stereotype is that there is "nothing to do in Athens."
I think that the ranking of #2 party school given to us in 2004 is pretty much all anyone knows about Ohio University. Oh, that and our Halloween celebration. I think these stereotypes cause misjudgements about our academic abilities, and thus when people hear "Ohio University" they think "Party School". People think of us as a contemporary setting for the remake of "Animal House".
Ohio students are thought to be total drunks/partiers. The girls are all thought to be stuck up in their northface jackets/ugg boots.
That all we do is party.
One prominent stereotype that I hear a lot outside of the Ohio University campus is that Ohio University is a party school and that students at Ohio University aren't as serious about their academics as they are concerned about partying.
