Do Student Stereotypes Among Teachers Run High On The Ole Miss Campus?

We know how students perceive other students on the Ole Miss campus, and we know how outsiders perceive students on the Ole Miss campus, but what about the teachers? What are the stereotypes professors see on campus and does it effect a student's performance in the classroom?

According to some Ole Miss students, stereotypes are definitely acknowledged by teachers simply because the stereotypes are so devout. Their concern wasn't that professors categorize all types of students, but rather, a certain few seem to stand out the most.

Ole Miss professors, however, believe that these stereotypes do not necessarily stem from a student's ideologies or upbringing; instead, they are usually formed due to the organization in which a student is involved.
