From UNIGO: UNCC Stereotypes Debunked... Sort of... Maybe... Ummm NO


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



"It [is] common to hear that UNCC students are commuter students because of the stereotype that UNCC is a suitcase campus (students leave over the weekends and return to school on Monday). This stereotype is false, but somewhat true..."     

"A stereotype that our school has is that we are all dumb people because it is not a tough school to get into. This is not true, there are plenty of smart individuals once you get into your major..."

"The students here at UNC Charlotte do not have a stereotype. From the very first time I began researching UNC Charlotte, they made it very clear that it was a very diverse student population. Upon arriving at UNC Charlotte, I was able to see first hand that this was true. Though the student population was indeed diverse, I did not notice a difference in the way the jocks, frat kids, stoners, geeks, etc. treated one another nor did I hear one talk negatively about the other." 

"I guess the biggest stereotype with the students at my school is that they are all commuter students..."

"There are two main stereotypes about UNC Charlotte and neither of them are true. A lot of people refer to UNC Charlotte as a "commuter" [school]which may have been true years ago but is rapidly changing...  I've heard UNC Charlotte being referred to as an inferior school compared to other universities in North Carolina..."

 "The stereotype of students at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte is that our school is full of commuters. This stereotype is accurate..."

"The only stereotype that I have heard about UNC Charlotte is that we all are average since its believed that our school is easy to get into." 

"Charlotte's biggest stereotype is that of being a "commuter school." Only a small percentage of students live on campus, and most of those are underclassmen..."

stereotype: (ˈsterēəˌtīp ) A widely held but fixed and oversimplified image or idea of a particular type of person or thing

 

Editorial: Some of these people prove the stereotypes, and some just live under a rock...
