That most are snobby or either stuck up.
Some steriotypes about Richmond are that it is an incredibly homogeneous student body, the students lack the ability to think analytically and creatively, and that it is a school for the very wealthy.
It's hard for me to pick out stereotypes because I never knew any, and then once I got here I made my own decisions. But considering the lofty tuition, I'd say its a generalization that all UR students are rich and snobby. Also people might think they are very socially exclusive.
Snobby, rich, attractive, smart

That we are white, wealthy, and inclusive
Many people see the typical Richmond student as the preppy, white, upper class kid who wears Polo, Lacoste, JCrew. When you think Richmond, you think preppy. I think, because of the tuition cost, people usually stereotype Richmond students as stuck up, disconnected from the real world by money.
They are all very preppy.
They are all spoiled.
We are a bunch of affluent, white, J.Crew-wearing Northeasterners who want to get a good education while attending a school that looks more like a country club than a college. All of the girls wear pearls and dresses to class. You better not even think of wearing sweatpants outside of your dorm room.
I think the first stereotype that comes to mind when most people think of Richmond is "preppy". Also, I've heard the University of Richmond referred to as the "University of Rich-kids".
preppy, too right for their own good, snobs, hardcore partiers
Contrasted to nearby Virginia Commonwealth University, we are often seen as wealthy, stuck-up, privileged, coke addicts who are not very open minded or progressive. Richmond is often represented by attractive white people and that is certainly a generalization as well. In contrast to state schools, students from Richmond are lots of times seen as nerdy and driven ... lacking a sense of humor.
Some stereotypes include: non-scholars are very homogenous from similar backgrounds, social classes, orientation, etc. There seems to be discretion over the amount (or lack of) diversity. We are viewed as preppy, middle-upper class wealthy students, a lot of greek involvement.
Preppy rich northern kids.
