Most of these sterotypes for students are not true, at least for the general population of the student body. Mostly everyone is here for school, but most students also know how to have a good time. Of course the weather here is amazing, and is part of the reason most people come here, nothing is better than waking up and not having to throw on 5 layers to go to class in a blizzard. Coming form the northeast, it is a nice to be able to wear sandals every day.
No. The weather is nice, but you get used to it
Not at all. There is a lot of variety here.
Somewhat. There are is a very large percentage of students in Greek Life, however there are also many who are not Greek, and are invlolved in many clubs and organizations around campus.
There is something for everyone.
Yes, for most of greek life.
some are! some of the people here are way too spoiled and don't have any clue what it's like to be in the real world.
No, While greeks love to party, we are very active in the community and get good grades. The greek system has a higher GPA than non-Greeks. Those statistics speak for themselves
The party part is true but depending on your major the classes can be extremely difficult and some honors sections make classes alot harder.
No. All universities have parties and all universities are party schools. I believe the U of A does the same amount of partying as any school its size. Classes at U of A are hard. Students do need to study a lot. The Eller College of Business, Nursing/ Med School, and College of Education are nationally ranked. There are amazing educational programs at U of A.
I would say that most students do spend some amount of time partying, but most likely not to the degree of what "outsiders" may think.
Yes, we may throw a lot of parties, but we also work hard too. It's the work hard, play hard mentality.
The Arizona stereotypes are (that it's hot and unsafe) although it's unsafe pretty much anywhere.
In part, yes. There are many students at the University of Arizona who like to have a good time. On the other hand, I know a lot of students who are dedicated to keeping their grades up and helping the community. The assumption that students can't party and also do well in school is completely wrong.
For the most part, I would say yes. I think people sometimes underestimate the quality and hardness of the classes here because it is not Ivy League, and is an instate college.
no, i have met so many moivated and passionate individuals; the classes here are challenging and enlightening.
There is always something to do from going to sporting events, going to University Blvd, 4th Ave, a friends house... whatever. The weather can be miserable, but that's usually just over the summer when majority of the people aren't here. Besides that the weather is usually beautiful.
No. Some may appply to certain people as individuals which gives a certain impression to people.
Semi true there are a lot of kids from California
somewhat, greek life is huge here so there are ALOT of places to party. however, we have such good academics and research at this school that it all balances out. there are soo many opportunities here no matter what your interests are.
Some what, there are a lot of people who do like to have a good time, and there are some that don't go out at all.
Absolutely, I bleed red & blue.
To some extent, but Arizona becomes what you make it. If you choose not to party, you don't have to and there are tons of people who want to be friends still :-). Also, the summer is hot, but it actually gets darn cold in the winter. The spring is the best weather.
The legislature has been predominantly democratic, but there are many republicans here too. Arizona kids do much more than partying...the Nursing School is in the Top 5 of the country.
People from Arizona can be classy. There are many country clubs and resorts so it can't be all bad.
No, this University has challenging classes. It might not be UCLA but is still a great university
Somewhat but no.
I'd say they are fairly accurate
Yes, but academics are still a priority
All but the first, which isn't necessarily true...
It is a party school, but its also a good school.
No. There are always fun activities to get involved in but most of the student's first priorities are their grades.
There's always some truth to every rumor, so I'd say that we are more prestigious than ASU and we have plenty of beautiful women. But as for parties, we know how to party, but also how to keep up with school.
Reguarding being from California and Arizona are true, but not it being a huge party school.
In some cases, possibly, but not completely. No stereotype is 100% accurate.
I do not think that any of those stereotypes are accurate and there are many people who work hard to do well and be successful in school.
This sterotype is absolutely, 100% true.
These stereotypes are not accurate at all. I happen to know numerous student who take their academics seriously. One of my friends works harder and has more desire to learn than anyone I know, and I have plenty of friends at Ivy League school. He works harder and is more passionate about learning than any of them.
Yes, though I'm not very tan.
Every University has a party scene, even Harvard (believe me).
Every University has good looking female student. And looks are a matter of opinion anyways.
Every University has student from all over the nation and world snobby or not.
On a serious note. Arizona has the reputation of the stated stereotypes listed above but what people do not know is that Arizona has amazing programs with many talented and hardworking students.
