    OP was not being arrogant. They simply realised that they are not at the same level as the majority of the people at their university. I went through the same thing, and can understand if OP is not completely happy being in that sort of environment. I was open-minded when I realised this at my university, yet in the end I just wasn't happy.
    From the OED:

    Of a person: having a high or inflated opinion of his or her own abilities, importance, etc.; presumptuous, excessively self-confident, or believing oneself to be superior to others.

    They were simply observing the lack of intelligence of some people studying at university, an establishment where I'd hope everyone who went there knew what 'being the norm' and an anagram was. Simple things.
