I think that there are many students at this school who are down to earth and real. Unfortunately there are so many students who are snobby and fake that the real people have to pretend to be fake. I think that if more students stood up for themselves and didn't conform to peer pressure than our school would be much more welcoming and open. The school spirit is a little low because we do not have a good football team. We have a incredible soccer team that is always 1 or 2 in the nation but no one even goes to the games. There is always a ton of controversy on our campus from the Bush library which is coming to our campus or the recent deaths from drugs and alchohol. One reason people make such a big deal about things is because there parents have money, are white and can afford to sue the school and everyone else. I will always remember the beautiful campus, the cool teachers (the small class size is pretty amazing) and my friends.
Class participation is common in classes for majors. General education classes tend to have plenty of students who do not want to be there. Students are competitive but many also boast about how little they work. It always depends on what classes/majors people are in. Some of my classes I learned absolutely nothing while in others I learned so much. I think it depends on the teacher and the school you are in (meadows, cox, dedman, etc) I think that all of the general education classes could be tougher.
It is mainly richer white people at our school. But all of the different races can and do form groups and stick together. I think it is a little segregated but not on purpose. Just certain people gravitate toward certain people that are like them. Most of the students come from upper class white families. Conforming is the thing to do if you are a student that does not fit into these catagories.
