University of Arkansas Top Questions

Is the stereotype of students at your school accurate?

Jesse

You can not enter a business with a radio on that isn't tuned into the Razorbacks on any given game day. The closer you get to campus the more support you see for the teams.

Lorie

For the most part the stereotypes are accurate. You will never get far at the university unless you are from Arkansas. Getting a job there is almost impossible unless you are an alum. If you are looking for good minority representation among the students or faculty you are out of luck.

Alex

Yes, very accurate

Brooke

No.

Not really because I know the GREEKS have the highest GPAs and we have to keep those high GPAs to stay in the GREEK system.

Elizabeth

Most of the time.

Ash

I beg to differ, the University of AR is a very diversified college and many of the "rednecks" are not in school up here.

Elizabeth

the first one is definitely not. sure, some podunk cities in the middle of nowhere in any state may have this issue, but not at the university. secondly, it's all what you make of it. whichever college you choose, there will be an opportunity to make that school that you are attending a party school depending on how you handle your college years and the decisions you make. Arkansas definitely has it's parties, but it is also extremely academically driven-- its what you make of your college experience.

Lindsey

No

Jordan

Its like any other college campus, there are parties, but there is also a very good academic atmosphere. We just know how to have a good time

Kristin

To an extent. There are guys (and girls) who enjoy the outdoors. And there are some girls who want to get married, but it is not a majority.

Courtney

no

Abbie

The clothes part is pretty accurate, but the huge party school thing can be deceiving. I think that it is a really fun school that always has a lot going on, but it's not a huge party school and everyone here doesn't get drunk all the time. Most people i know balance parties and school pretty well.

Hunter

See above answer.

kate

Yes.

Meagan

Of course we are not stupid and the school is really good. Yeah we might not be ivy league or anything but it is a good school both academicly and socially.

Alex

Everyones different, but that goes to account at every school.

Katie

Not even close

Charlie

Not at all! We are very smart and have very cute shoes.

ashley

Some are, some aren't. I think sorority girl stereotypes are unfair, especially to those who are in sororities and are far from being an alcoholic whore. Greeks do so much on campus and are so involved with philanthropy. We attend pep-rallies, games, and are involved with the rest of the greek community on campus. The sorority stereotype really upsets me because I feel that people only look for the bad instead of trying to recognize the good. If non-greeks could see how much we really DO care about each other and how much we DO care about our campus and philanthropies, maybe they wouldn't be so judgmental. If they took the time to get to know greeks, they may be surprised at the kindness they would receive.

Shawn

Yes. Definately. We walk around w/ no shoes, and don't have teeth. I mean, I walk around outside barefoot all the time. No, those things aren't true!

Kelsey

Some what but I think you are able to find a little bit of both everywhere. Maybe just a little more here.
