The stereotype is preppy douchebags, and it is quite accurate
I think every school has its share of shallow trust-fundees who care more about parties and delaying the real world than getting an education. So I don't think that's a fair criticism of Salve because it's just a general trend. I think the main issue is that Salve students are just not fundamentally curious and are not engaged in their own education. Most Salve students seem like the type who got decent grades in high school, but never raised their hand in class and never pushed themselves---and they overwhelmingly still don't. As a former teacher’s assistant, I know the effort it takes to create lesson plans and class projects to get students involved. It sucks when these plans are met with complete lack of enthusiasm, not necessarily because the professors' ideas aren't innovative or engaging, but because of an overall lethargy in the classroom. One Salve professor suggested that it might be due to Catholic elementary/high school educations many students have before coming to Salve, which traditionally emphasize order and discipline as opposed to open discussion. This lack of involvement translates into other aspects of student life, like clubs, activities, sports, lectures, and events, which are often poorly attended and disorganized in spite of the attempts of a few dedicated individuals.
