Overview Our project is focused on social stereotypes within the Furman Community, and how the existence of these stereotypes reflect on different groups and on the campus social scene as a whole. The groups covered in our project were Greeks,Athletes, and regular Furman students or “Furmanites.”
How we define stereotypes A “stereotype” is a popular belief about specific social groups or types of individuals.Stereotypes are standardized and simplified conceptions of groups based on prior assumptions made by people outside of those groups.
Stereotypes Covered Shannice- General Furman stereotypes Maggie- Sorority Girl stereotypes Colin- Fraternity stereotypes Ryan & Charlie- Athletic stereotypes
Motive Behind the Madness We believe that, by drawing attention to social stereotypes at Furman, we can help members of the Furman community rethink the way they view, describe, and discriminate against those around them.

FinThrough our experience interviewing, we got a sense ofhow the different members of the Furman communityview not only their peers around them but themselves asin regards to others.We were able to get honest and sometimes bluntresponses (some of which could not be shown due toethical reasons) to the questions that we asked and thishelped give a credible and realistic evaluations ofstereotypes that live within the Furman community .
