Very preppy students, big party school, good athletics
I've heard that we are just a HUGE party school and all we care about is football and basketball. Supposedly, our students only care about partying and getting drunk all the time. Oh, and we think we're better than other schools in Tennessee and the SEC.
-southern good ole boys
-beautiful girls(so true)
-not an academically great school
Some stereotypes about UTK would be that it is a party school, a football school, and not as academically challenging as other universities. Some stereotypes of UTK students is that those students involved in the greek life just party all the time and that they "buy" their friends.
that we're all rich, snobby, preppy white kids
It is a very sports-oriented school..... very country and southern.
A lot of people think that UTK is just a huge party school and that their students party every night and go out every night of the week and drink all the time. Also UTK is known very well for its strong Greek life, and so there are always stereotypes that go along with what people typically think of a sorority or fraternity.
I think a lot of people think that Tennessee has a lot of hillbillies!
I would say people generally think of UTK as a party school, and don't believe that it is actually hard.
Everyone is obsessed with football!
Many people think that because its a public Tennessee school that the education and academic level are lower than other schools.
That sorority and fraternity students live inside a "bubble" and do not know what the real world is like. That they are considered "rich," "stuck up" and think they are "better" than the average student at UT. UT is a big party school. We are just into sports.
We party and drink a lot
That they all drink
We are all really smart since we were accepted into UTK
preppy, rich, white, southern, partiers
UTK: All the school cares about it football
UTK Students: Southern rednecks
partiers, not smart
That we are a party school. Honestly, we don't party more than any other college. We work and study just as hard as we party.
hicks, only obssessed with football, poor academic cirriculum, everyone's in Greek life
Big Party-ers. Country. Too much orange.
they are preppy and southern
That we are hicks who party too much

I would say that the biggest stereotype about UTK is that it is a party school and that everyone who goes here just wants to get drunk all the time.
we are a huge party school
A very southern school with all the students being the same type of student. The students are only concerned with football and partying.
some stereotypes are that they have alot of school spirit and put down other schools
That we are VOLUNTEERS :)! UTK is a party school.
That they are partiers
UTK is a party school and that anyone can get in as incoming Freshman or transfer student.
I think coming into UTK, a lot of people think that it is a big party school.
People I know at places like Vanderbilt see us as rednecks.
There are the Frat boys and the sorority girls. They all dress the same.
Rich, preppy, materialistic people who live off their parents money and do nothing but party it away at UT
Sororities and Fraternaties students party alot, the pre med and engineer students are very smart...
Some of the stererotypes of UTK students include the fact that we are all really southern and hick as well as imcompentent. Most of the time that is not true, and there's a lot of people that come from northern states that attend here. A stereotype that I fell for when trying to decide if I wanted to attend UTK was that it was a school for "stupid people." In fact, the average ACT score for freshmen is a 26. The "Big Orange Screw" is another stereotype of people attending UTK.
That its a bunch of rednecks and all we do is party
UT is a party school.
We are trash, we are southern hicks, we are dirty, it's too easy to get into
Large Greek System, predominantly white, not very smart, country- wears cowboy hats, boots, and belt buckles everywhere
That we're all republican conservatives.
Bad retention rates and graduation rates
That we are all country red-necks
we party a lot and the students are segregated
The stereotypes other people have about us:
poor Stereotypes we have about our peers:
everyone lives in a bubble

everyones parents pay for everything
