University of Evansville Top Questions

What is the stereotype of students at your school? Is this stereotype accurate?


The biggest stereotype of students at my university is that we are all rich and stuck up. This is not true at all. University of Evansville boasts about our Volunteering programs that are year round. We are very involved in the community whether it is the greek's philanthropies or spending a morning doing a campus wide volunteer project. Finally, almost every student who attends the university has a scholarship and is proud about the work that they have accomplished to earn that scholarship.


There is a place for everyone at the University of Evansville. You don't have to have just one stereotype to be a student at UE. Since we are a private school, people think that we are all nerds, but the biggest population of students actually consist of athletes (10% of the student body) and greeks (30% of the student body). However, you don't have to be outrageously smart, athletic or greek affiliated to fit in here. There are places for everyone to get involved - whether you're religious, artsey, or musical, you will find people just like you here. And don't be afraid to mix your stereotype! Since it is a small campus, it is easy and fun to get involved with many different groups!
