Indiana University Bloomington
Indiana University Bloomington - Comments and Student Experiences|
Let me tell you about the students here. The students can easily be grouped into certain categories:
1. "Townies" - townies are kids who grew up in Indiana (excluding NW indiana.) within the townie group there are two subcategories: the first is kids from the suburbs of Indianapolis. Carmel, Indiana, supposedly some wealthy suburb of Indianapolis, is where lots of these kids come from. They're very snooty and think they're rich. Bitch, please. You'd be middle ass at best in the Chicago suburbs. The second group of townies is Indiana kids who are a little more rural and middle class or lower. These kids are a lot more down to earth.
2. The "chicago kids." Let me start of by saying I am a "Chicago kid", I live in a middle class suburb 20 minutes north of downtown. But there are not many others like me. The Chicago kids you meet here will almost all be from the north shore-some of the wealthiest towns in the entire country north of Chicago along the lake. These students will ALL tell you they study business. Lots of them were rejected by the university of illinois, which is a much better school, but they're parents are wealthy and can afford to have them in Kelley even though it's out of state. These kids are the stereotypical frat boys, wearing polos every day and driving their daddy's escalades.
3. East coast kids: 95% of the east coast kids come from New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. And they are ALL Jewish and ALL wealthy. It's easy to spot them on campus just by looking at them, it isn't hard. They usually have very dark black hair and large noses. They all either study business or law. Some are quite nice, some not so much. It really depends on the person. The east coast kids I met were some of the nicest and some of the rudest people I met at IU.
4. West coast kids: these kids are alright, I only knew a few of them and most of them are pretty fratty, but they're a lot better than the east coast kids.
5. Everyone else: makes up a tiny minority of the school. This group includes people outside of the coasts, illinois, and indiana. Lots are from Ohio, Kentucky, etc. I can't give you much here. Iys hit or miss with these kids, they're simply too diverse of a group.
