4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: The campus police are very inconspicuous, and they are super helpful as well. As long as you aren't being outwardly obnoxious during the weekends, the security guards are fairly lenient. I've never had a negative experience with the campus police.

5 College Junior

Campus Strictness: The college isn't that strict. As long as you don't break any laws they don't regulate student's life that much.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The school has very strict rules about underage drinking and over-night visitors, however, they don't really care what students do. No one ever gets caught doing something bad. Someone would have to alert the school or you would have to be very open about drinking or having a visitor.

5 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Not very strict, unless you do something crazy. Okay to have members of opposite sex in your room at any time.

1 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: People can do whatever they want it is not the best thing.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Allegheny is a pretty chill place. A lot of things operate on the honor system. Buildings are left open late at night, and there isn’t one security camera or burglar alarm. However, there is a system set up so that in an emergency situation (à la Virginia Tech), a mass e-mail/text message is sent out to the students from the Security Office.

Security on campus is most concerned with the students’ rights and creating an environment that stresses personal responsibility and trust. The flipside of that is that theft does happen. Allegheny students are not the only ones who can walk into open buildings; things go missing from sports lockers or unlocked cars every once in a while. Whatever it is you’re trying to get away with, if you’re smart, you won’t get caught. Don’t go to really loud parties if you’re underage and don’t get so drunk that you’ll look drunk walking home. If the party spills out onto the lawn, don’t go anywhere near it. It’s bound to be busted within the next 10 to 15 minutes.
