Sure, the students have a strict dress code, and could tell other Ignatians from a mile away just by what they're wearing, but that doesn't mean they're awful/cultish people. Do not mistake all Ignatians for dumb kids who get all of their cash from their parents. Sure, some are like that, but many get jobs over the summer to save money for their college funds, to buy Kanye West T-shirts and matching sunglasses, or to buy tickets to Lollapalooza; a weekend concert which takes place every year in the first week of August.
These kids are hard workers, and on top of that, have a good fashion sense.
(well, a lot of them do.)
HINT: you can tell an ignatian from others if they've visited/heard of at least 20 different neighborhoods in Chicago.
Student 2: let's see here... Birkenstocks, northface, more presentable than the average person... they must be an Ignatian.
StudentFromOtherSchoolOnTrain: an Ignatian?
Student 2: yes. a person who comes from St. Ignatius College Prep.
Academics > Football team, actually truth be told, our football team is probably one of the worst in the nation.
Student #2 from SICP: Yes!
Student #1 from SICP: Really? I don't believe that St. Ignatius College Prep could pull it off! That usually never HAPPENS!
Kevin: Haha yeah, it's pretty chill, I got herpes there though from this one chick.
Try as they might, no Ignatius athletic teams seem to be able to have consistent success. Though their parents always by their children top-of-the-line equipment, athleticism is rare and has lead to Ignatius' reputation as a"guaranteed win." This is evident in the annual Fenwick/Ignatius football game where Ignatius will usually lose by a deficit of at least 35 points. Even as Ignatius boasts itself as an "academic powerhouse," their Math and Science teams consistently prove inferior to other prep schools, including bitter rival Fenwick, who also outshines them on standardized test scores.
Known for having below average-looking women, the social scene is also lacking. A typical weekend for any Ignatius student usually consists of stealing Bacardi Razz or Malibu Rum from one's parents and sneaking it into a party in a water bottle. After each consuming the equivalent of two or three shots, students generally become intoxicated and resort to bizarre homoerotic behavior including, but not limited to: applying body glitter, dancing to Jonas Brothers, wearing black leather, watching reruns of Ellen, etc. This metrosexuality is also also exemplified by the clothing worn by students, including brands such as American Eagle, Abercrombie, Hollister, etc. Many Ignatius boys like using hair gel to mold a faux-hawk or spend 20 minutes on creating that "just-rolled-out-of-bed look." Pooka shells, Kanye West sunglasses, Birkenstocks, stud earrings, destroyed/paint-stained jeans, designer graphic tees, and many other types of extremely lame clothing are staples in the daily Ignatius outfit.
Yes, while the douchebags of Ignatius sit smugly in their ivory towers, the rest of Chicagoland, and the country, has a laugh at their expense.
Father: All those dumbasses at Ignatius are queens that suck at sports, I'm not sending my son to school with those cocksuckers.
