I’ve never really been a fan of stereotypes because they usually aren’t true, but these are totally on point!
Here’s the top 5:
1. Everyone in College Station is a “redass.”
College Station eats, sleeps, and breathes Aggie football. Come game day, the stadium floods with red as over 100,000 fans fill the stands while the city subsequently shuts down.
In these parts, “redass” isn’t an insult, but a compliment, referencing how much love a Texas A & M fan shows for their team.
2. Everyone here feels strongly about Johnny Manziel.
In recent years, Texas A & M’s former star quarterback took the entire country by storm, as people all across America were amazed by how well he could play. After Johnny Football left College Station, he joined the Cleveland Browns with starkly different results.
While not every College Station local loves this guy, they definitely have a strong opinion about him. Either they praise him thanks to his outstanding performance on Kyle Field or they despise him due to his immature lifestyle off of it.
3. College Station loves to drink beer.
A town with a big nightlife scene, College Station is home to Dixie Chicken, a bar that claims to sell more beer per square foot than any other drinking establishment in the nation. Couple that with the seemingly constant tailgating and festivals and you’ve got a city full of avid partiers.
4. College Station folks love to stay active.
Thanks to the awesome weather in College Station, the people that live there love to spend time outside, whether they’re exercising, running around town, or spending time at nearby Lake Bryan.
A town with tons of young adults full of energy, life in College Station always seems to be on the move, producing a very vibrant and exciting local culture.
5. People in College Station are smart.
Not only is this town home to Texas A & M, they’ve also got one of the best public education systems in the state and a higher than average percentage of residents with a college degree. These numbers have helped earn them the top spot in “Money” magazine’s list of smartest Texan cities in the past.
While the residents here aren’t snobby or pretentious, it’s quickly becomes obvious in nearly any conversation that College Station folk come from a very intelligent community.
