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


Very boring and like to gossip which is true


Rich cops is the stereotype. It's a bit true but the people here are quite nice.


I'd say that there's two main stereotypes. The first is that just about everyone is a criminal justice major, and that's true. It's not necessarily a good thing either because there's a shortage of available criminal justice classes and a lot of CJ majors end up not taking any classes in their major the first year. Another big stereotype is that campus is dead, no one parties, and the freshman dorms are alcohol free. Sure there are some non-drinkers on campus, but there's all kinds of drugs, alcohol, and drunk kids on campus Thursday-Sunday or more.
