SUNY College at Geneseo Top Questions

What is the stereotype of students at your school?


White, middle class student body with a high proportion of females to males. Maybe seen as elitist overachievers because of the school's "public honors" claim.


The majority of students are white, and come from relatively local areas, like Rochester, Buffalo, etc.


Geneseo is often considered to be a somewhat elitist school - which is a bit strange, given the fact that it is a state school. It's often seen as pasty-white, too, with very little diversity. Strangely, I wasn't aware of this stereotype before I got to the school, but apparently it has a fairly significant reputation as a party school with a seemingly endless amount of frats and sororities. A large selling point for many males, too, is the significantly larger portion of the female population on campus.
