that we are lesbians
Stereotypes include: many/most Smithies are lesbians, man-haters, crazy uber-liberals, obnoxious over-achievers
Everyone is a lesbian or bisexual. Smith girls study all the time and never go out. Smith is a bubble, you will never get off campus. There are certain stereotypes that run with certain houses or organizations as well.
Gay. Rich. Uptight. Way too overly focused on studies.
That we are all lesbians, that we are all book worms and don't know how to have fun.
awkward studious lesbians
uber-liberal, intense/very tightly wound

Many Smith Students are homosexual or are questioning their sexuality-or temporarily change their sexuality during their 4 years at Smith.
Smith students are especially smart and gay.
Smith students are Lesbians, high strung feminists, opinionated and energetically charged in areas that are felt strongly about.
I think some of the stereotypes are that Smithies are liberal, conceded and pretentious. Also there is a stereotype that Smith is overflowing with lesbian & transgendered students.

The biggest stereotype about Smithies is that we are all lesbians, and that there is a lot of drama because of it. Women's colleges in general are often thought to be "catty."
left wing, liberal, outspoken, hardworking
The stereotypical Smithie is very liberal and passionate about both her studies and issues she cares about, and is a major over-achiever. I have heard Smith called "the lesbian capital of the world".
There are a couple of types: 1) The girly girls who wear pearls, miniskirts, northface polar fleeces, and flip flops at every available opportunity. 2) The super gay lesbian types with short hair and men's clothing. 3) The nerdy girls who have no social graces, no makeup, wear capes, and play D and D. 4) The indie girls who go to rock shows all the time, smoke, and make fun of your favorite band. There are plenty of people that fit none of these categories as well. Also, some people combine a few of the types. Everyone is considered to be smart. People from the outside think all Smith girls are desperate and horny and get really excited to see boys. Maybe some do. I don't really know.
Stereotypes: Smithies are incredibly politically liberal and all lesbian.
Some of the stereotypes that I've heard is that we're all radical feminist lesbians
Smithies are ugly.

We don't have enough fun.
Everyone is gay.

Non-Smithies have stereotypes that all Smith women are man-hating feminists.
Smith students are assumed to be man-hating, rabid feminists.

"Everyone at Smith is a lesbian and if you are not one when you get here, you'll be one by the time you leave"
That because Smith is all women, everyone is a lesbian and there aren't any parties on campus.
Smith likes to present the image of a wonderfully diverse and welcoming place, where stereotypes and labels disappear.

Stereotypes about Smith are that it is a lot of rich, white liberal women who are caddy and bisexual. That they are unattractive (thanks GQ magazine) and obnoxiously feminsit.
It is a school full of unattractive, intelligent and independent women.
that we're all gay, that we can't dress ourselves, that we're really intense
People seem to think that Smithies are either wealthy, uppity and conservative or gay, socially liberal hippies. We are known for studying a lot and being a little nerdy and, sometimes, for being strong leaders with a lot of "Type A" personalities.
lesbians, smart, hard-working
smithies are: rich, white, and lots of them are gay
Many people assume we are all gay and very liberal.
We're all man-hating, feminazi lesbians. Or, if the stereotyper is older, we're domestic, pearl-wearing future wives of powerful men.
People say that Smith is a place that breeds radical feminists, and that Smith students are mostly all lesbians. People also say that Smith is just the place that rich girls with pearls hang out until they get married. Clearly, there are some different accounts going on...
A lot of people stereotype Smith students as being predominantly gay. I also think that people tend to think that women's colleges are full of either man-hating ultra feminists or prissy little princesses.
THE LESBIAN RUMORS ARE TRUE
Very sexually oriented and fun.
