1 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Very strict, you have no chance of getting away with anything or being about to state your case. They'll think your guilty no matter what, and fine you an obscene amount of money.

Campus Strictness: You'll get in trouble if you are underage and have visible alcohol in your room. Campus Safety also claims to have a no blame policy if you call them for a ride and you are drunk and underage. Usually you will get in trouble.

Campus Strictness: Campus Safety Is Relaxed – Most of the time at Albion College the Campus Safety staff isn't very severe. As long as you are not creating a ruckus or distraction they pretty much leave you alone. Drugs are taken very seriously at Albion though and the punishments for being caught with them can get severe.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: They are very flexible and willing to work with you to solve the problems

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: All's Well. The college is really great with keeping everyone safe. They understand that there's underage drinking, but they want to make sure you're safe rather than making sure you're in trouble. Campus Safety is great, rides with no questions asked. Drug use, however, is a lot more strict. I've had some friends not be able to return their next semester because they were caught. Still, the college will often let them back after a semester off. :)

The policies on alcohol and drugs keep getting stricter, and they will most likely continue to do so until Albion ultimately becomes a dry campus. It has been rumored that this has been the administration's goal for a while now. Albion used to be quite the party school 20 to 30 years ago, but then they started cracking down. Now, students are fined $250 to $500 for alcohol violations, and they can immediately be kicked off campus for drugs. However, the College likes to handle things within and rarely brings in Albion Public Safety, the town's police department.

Unless you are really flaunting the fact that you're violating the College's policies, you most likely won't get caught. Campus Safety officers are lenient with students who aren't causing trouble or endangering themselves or other students. As long as you don't take your alcohol or drug intake to the extremes, you will most likely sail through your four years without any major trouble. Alcohol poisonings have been the biggest threat recently to Albion's reputation, and the administration takes that reputation very seriously. Anything that reflects badly on the College, they are looking to control.
