What kinds of people can be found at UW?

I feel kind of silly asking this question, especially since I live in Western Washington and feel like I have a pretty good idea of what kinds of kids are found here, but for some reason most of the people I've talked to that are aiming for UW aren't the most enjoyable people to be around, like the pathetic and the superficial, and the "i just wanna join a frat and party", and the "i'm too Christian for my own good", and whatnot. There are a few exceptions, but I think it could just be the fact that I go to private school and a lot of the kids here are delusional clones of one another that think Puget Sound is Laguna Beach. It's weird, to say the least. Anyway, I'm wondering what kinds of people can be found at UW. I doubt there are quite as many hippies as Evergreen or as many hipsters as Western, but there are some at UW, right? As well as skater boys and artsy types and guys with swagger and feminist girls and flamboyant boys and sci-fi nerds and everything else, right? Just tell me please because I'd really like to know. It's interesting!
