Anyone seriously not care much for their alma mater in undergrad?

Specified undergrad since some might have MBAs but I have to say I could never relate to the kids who were gung ho about what college they went to, granted I didn't go to an Ivy.

I legit do not care much for my undergrad, a top 30 public uni. Come to think of it I might be a rare case since I never fit in socially, barely made any friends, and everyone there was just hyper-cliquish upper middle class kids from the suburbs who looked down on everyone not like them.

Greek life ran the show, girls were stuck up and not that hot at all (quality kept going down as admission standards got raised), people in general were real rude and cold if you were not in their social cliques, and it was nothing like they say college was supposed to be like.

I genuinely do not care if they win a championship now and rarely associate with them as much.

If you don't care about it, why did you go there - did you once care about it or you never did?

  1. Not competitive enough for the Ivies.
  2. OOS tuition too high.
  3. Decent enough uni and I wouldn't have to take out loans to go there.

I met a bunch of IU people in NYC that were super gung ho about IU. It was a bit much at times but also hilarious.

They even had a rent stabilized NYC IU frat pad with a private backyard outdoor pool in the city. Pretty good setup.

I used to care. The further I get away from college the less I care.

I used to feel the same way about fraternities but I found that a lot of frat guys outside of my alma mater are some really cool dudes.

Freaking loved it. Greek life was awesome, most of my closest friends these days are fraternity brothers. Watch all the football and basketball games.

I have asked my undergrad to put me on their 'do not call' list. I met some good friends there, but not thanks to their help.

I do have strong feelings towards my HS, and was given an opportunity to get them $40K+ this year which I took. I could have split that with my college, but fuck them.

My school tried to act like what we had was more than a business agreement, I give you money/time, and you give me a degree, so as a product of that I do not care for them at all.

I do still speak to a few professors and will go talk in their classes only but will never do anything to help the school as a whole

Could care less about mine. It's pretty hard to get in and a semi-target, but most of you guys would sneeze at it. The curriculum was absolutely brutal and all that did was lower your GPA and make you even less marketable.

That being said, I would help someone coming out of there because I know how much it sucks.

I don't give a shit about my undergrad or my graduate school. They were fine and all, but they were overpriced as-is and all they do is hit me up for more money.
