It consists mainly of white middle-class students, many of which play sports and are from New England.
That we are all upper class when many of us have received scholarships/financial aid.
One of the biggest is that Wheaton is full of rich, preppy students. That everyone is stuck-up, and just not worth knowing.
1) All Wheaton students are rich and come from affluent families.
2) There really is such a thing as the "Wheaton Bubble"
That because it is a high-priced institution, there are a lot of rich and high-and-mighty types of people here.
Liberal, homosexual, Northerners,
Some people think we have a housing crunch. Others dread living on lower campus because of its reputation. Too small of a campus. Boring.
Everyone thinks of the typical Wheatie as extremely liberal and politically and socially involved.
The predominant stereotypes about the school and its students describe the school as a haven for white, upper-class, Birkenstock-wearing, liberals. This stereotype is generally untrue from what I have seen. The fact that tuition at the college is expensive does unfortunately make it more accessible to students from financially secure backgrounds, this however is true for almost every private school in the country. In actuality, the school prides itself on its diversity and the numerous backgrounds of its students supports this claim. It is true, however, that the campus as a whole learns toward the far left, and you would be hard presses to find much diversity regarding political views.
Many people believe that due to the cost of a private liberal arts education that Wheaton students are rich, snobby, flaky, etc.
Also, I have heard it referred to as nerd school where kids study and don't have fun.
People think Wheaton students are all either really preppy or really artsy...
Wheaton Students are preppy
People often assume that we are all rich, preppy kids. Some people say that the students all have the same style and interests.
That everyone is rich and stuck up. Also that we pay too much for our education.
Small, Suitcase school, rich people
We're all from New England.
We all wear Uggs.
We are all activists.
We all love Wheaton.
We live in a "bubble" separated from the real world.
Stereotypes I've encountered are that Wheaton students tend to be very wealthy and pretty big partiers.
Rich, Preppy, Overwhelmingly artistic, Hippie
Very happy people
That we are all middle/upper class white preppy yuppies or just dumb jocks who are accepted to build up the guy-to-girl ratio as well as play sports really well but not try in the classroom.
White and whiny maybe
Wheaton students are generally very diverse in different ways. There tend to be a wide variety of "hippies" and "preppys", along with many other stereotipical students.
Rich, white, smokers, spoiled, WASP-y, alcoholics
white, rich and preppy
preppy, artsy, hippie,
Stereotypes - Perhaps by people from the surrounding area they think we are all snobby and rich. That is definitely not true - not all of us have a ton of money.
Rich kids. 'Nough said. With a school that will cost over $48,000 a year and only 40-60% of students receiving financial aid, there are a lot of wealthy, wealthy kids.
People tend to think Wheaton is primarily a wasp school with a bunch of rich kids who are rude and think they're better than the people who are Norton residences.
That all the girls are hot.
That there is a lot of drinking on the weekends.
That a lot of us are prep-school white kids from New England
