Is the stereotype of students at your school accurate?


No, I have heard many people say that this school is for hoosiers and hicks. But that stereotype is not true at all because even though this school has many small town students, they are all very nice and welcoming.


Once again, it depends on what exactly you're looking at. If you're looking at the stereotypes of those that actually attend UCM like I described, then yeah. They are bound to be right because the students that came up with them are actually there to see them. If you're looking at outsiders' stereotypes, they are probably not as true.


The stereotype of students at my school is that all we do is party. Although partying is a sizable percentage of what the students do here, we are high achieving in academics and there is a lot more to UCM students than partying. Of course we have our jocks, frat kids, and nerds, but who doesn't!I think that people have the wrong idea about UCM. We are a great school with great students and professors.


It can be a party school.
