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

One of the stereotypes I have noticed while at UP is that outsiders think we are wealthy white kids. I do not think this is completely accurate because almost every student is on some sort of financial aid whether it is coming from the University, outside loans, or private scholarships. Although many students are Caucasian, you will find differences in religious background, political views, and sexual orientation. One stereotype that does hold up is that UP students are smart, caring, and dedicated to what they do.
