motivated, hard teachers, pointless classes, rude people
We are the Ragin Cajuns which means we are the best.
We are the fattest Univerity
We are the Biggest party university
We're all hicks or dumb as doornails.
Dont know of any.
They are PCP students....Parking lot, Class, Parking lot. Very uninvolved. The commuter campus feel totally sucks because there is not much of a sense of community. And when there is, it is not shared by much of the student body.
There aren't too many stereotypes I hear about UL Lafayette except the only reason we went to UL is because we couldn't get in to LSU
-we have an actual swamp on campus
-we have a Chili Pepper as a mascot
People think of UL as people who like to go to clubs everynight, as compared to LSU who is more about house parties. For some reason, I have heard people say students at UL are not as intelligent as students who get into LSU, very disturbing.
everyone says that ul is a party school and its students are all alcoholics. because we have a swamp at the school, people think we are all country.
That UL Lafayette students just are only interested in parties rather than academics.
Not as smart as LSU students
school- anyone can get in
student- partiers, hicks, slackers
Didn't know there were any, but I guess you can say country
Some stereotypes about ULL: Party school, Easy, For people who couldn't get into LSU
i don't think there are any
I believe UL is stereotyped as being an easy school for people who couldn't get into LSU. Another stereotype is that we are all from the country and have no plans on moving away from Lafayette.
People often think UL Lafayette is a bad school because of our football team.
Most stereotypes that I've heard about UL is that the majority of the students attending are the only the ones who who could not get into LSU.
I think some stereotypes about UL students is that they don't care about the university. I think a lot of people assume just b/c there is a lack of sports attendance it automatically means lack of school pride. I think it's completely untrue, I think all students want the UL name to succeed so they're degree can mean something.
Some stereotypes are the students there are stupid, and poor. UL is thought to be dirty and old.
People only go to UL because they cant get into LSU. Our sports are bad.
hometown college with hometown people
second rate academics
students who like to party all the time
That we are LSU rejects. That we are lower class since it is inexpensive to go to school here.
Our Univserities biggest stereotype is that we are a party school. It is extremely hard to ignore this description being that we are in Louisiana. Because we live in Louisiana, it is also said that our education is less than acceptable, which is far from true.
Some stereotypes I find are that the students that attend ULL are the students who could not get into LSU.
ULL is a big party school.
That we party too much and that it must not be a hard college.
some teachers are sexist and/or racist, especially in the nursing dept. and biology dept.
I believe UL Lafayette is stereotyped as a fun school where there is constantly fun activities being put on by different groups and plenty of things to do on the weekend. UL Lafayette also gets a lot of talk because of our amazing swamp, complete with fish, turtles, and even alligators! The students are stereotyped as fun and willing to get to know and help everyone!
