There is definitely a stereotype of the typical Villanovan. We didn't get the nickname "Vanillanova" for no reason. The majority of students are white, upper-middle class, and Catholic.
That being said, I have made many friends at Villanova who don't fit into the stereotype. I know people from many different races, religions, and economic backgrounds.
Unwitting participants in a mass brainwashing effort by an activist faculty with a clear leftist agenda, all in the name of "compassion and fairness."

The sterotype is that Villanova is the feeder school, the back up school for all the top schools in the Northeast including the Ivy's as well as BC and Georgetown.

Villanova is known as the stereotypical preppy school. It is so-called "white America," as we have garnered the name Vanillanova. We have also attained the name Villanofun. This is most likely due to the intense Radnor police and security around the school. When a student comes to visit Villanova University, they usually expect to see all white students with North Face jackets, UGG Boots, and Louis Vuitton purses. They also expect people to be stuck up and rich.

Rich white kids.
85% of the student population are white. The school can be nicknamed "Vanillanova" at times. Since it is on the main line, many students come from richer areas and present themselves to be materialistic.

Villanova is stereotyped as a typical eastern school. Kids believe everyone to be caucasion, rich, and well-dressed.
The students are generally "hot" girls and "bitchin" guys who like to go out and get drunk at bars underage while dressed from head to toe in preppy garb and wielding an iPod or iPhone that has whatever song is cool that week blasting at the loudest setting.
"VillaNo Fun", VanillaNova-Villanova is completely white
The biggest stereotype is that there is a "Villanova Student." This is a term for the generic people you might see on campus, wearing a sweatshirt, jeans and (for the girls) uggs. They all listen to DMB and Jack Johnson, etc., and they all talk about the same things.

Villanova was given the nicknames "Villa no fun" and "Vanilla nova." The stereotype is that only caucasians go there. A lot of people seem to think that every Villanova student is a J Crew or Abercrombie kind of person. Before I came here, I heard that it was VERY conservative.

A stereotype about Villanova is that we are not a big party school. It is usually called "Villa- no- fun". Also, the students are thought to be rich, preppy kids who are stuck up.
People typically regard Villanova students as preppy, J-Crew-esque kids who are completely loaded and have a good time using it to their advantage. The typical vibe is that Philly schools don't like us because they assume we think we're entitled to something. Girls are typically pretty thin, well-dressed, and pretty, and boys are fratty in the preppiest way possible.
Sterotype is affluent, preppy, white kids

A lot of people who haven't really been here consider it a "rich white kid's school". when most people hear this, they think that everyone here is really stuck up.

Villanova is a Basketball school. The football team gets little support from students but the men's basketball team is highly idolized. The school is predominantly Caucasian students, thus the joking school title of VanillaNova. The final stereotype is that every student is a stuck up, snotty, rich kid.
Many of the stereotypes surround money and race about Villanova students. There is also a stereotype about how knowing people on campus helps you get into organizations and such.
