I want to go to school with kids that will be willing to talk about more than just sport, girls, and beer

I hate to be the one to break it to you, but that will likely never change, no matter where you go. Look around you, anywhere, and we're constantly fed materialism. This is certainly not exclusive to your university. If you're looking for a challenge, this is it. You'll have many more like this and if you begin running now you'll never stop. Eventually you will find someone who shares your interests as well. Until then, when not being bored not chasing girls and/or drinking, get a constructive hobby and get really good at it. Go over the reasons why you chose this school in the first place. Don't make a decision based on the social aspects. Good luck.

Also, if you're a freshman, you're probably taking mainly general ed courses, once you get into higher level classes and start focusing on your major, I would suspect that the classwork will become at least somewhat more challenging, and some of the students who are just there because they don't have anything better to do will get weeded out. And you really don't need to rely on your professors to learn. Motivate yourself if that's what it takes. They don't know anything that can't be found in a book.
