Bay Path College is a dry campus and has strict policies against drugs and alcohol. Recently, the penalties have become more relaxed, dropping from fines to community service, but they're still serious about enforcement. For alcohol, a first offense means community service hours, and the second results in community service, a fine, and a meeting with the campus counselor. For possession, use, or sale of illegal drugs, the punishment is suspension or dismissal from the college. Bay Path is also a smoke-free campus and smoking is prohibited in all the buildings. There are no firearms and weapons permitted on campus, and hazing is forbidden as well. There are also strict attendance and overnight-stay policies. Otherwise, Campus Safety is not strict about student activities, as most of the students are well behaved, and RA's are tolerant as well.
The campus does not seem overly strict, due to the students' good behavior more than anything else. If there are any problems, they just have to be mentioned once usually and then are taken care of. Generally, the students are respectful of each other and of the administration. Students just need to realize that freedom also comes with responsibility, and they need to know what there limits are.
