Campus Strictness: Okay, all rules are in place for a reason. Obviously you shouldn't have alcohol or drugs in your room. Obviously it is uncomfortable for everyone for you to have a boy over when your roommate is trying to sleep. So, while visitation can be pretty annoying, I can't say I totally disagree with the policy. Some students are working to get visitation hours extended, though, which I support.

As for band practice and musical practice rules, they are there for a reason as well but can be pretty annoying. But you can always go outside to play.

Campus Strictness: the strictness in the dorms and visitation hours is bad.

Campus Strictness: Belmont University is a sheltered community. They attempt to implement rules that remind me of something my parents would have made when I was 14. The segregated (gender) dorms, visitation hours, and inability to accept underage drinking are just a few examples of Belmont's annoying conservative views.

Campus Strictness: You can't have anyone of the opposite sex in your room unless you go down to the lobby and check them in. You get a red tag to put on your door, and they can only visit until 11 on week days and 1 on weekends. Which doesn't seem that awful, but the fact that it's a rule is just annoying. There also aren't big parties on campus because of their dry campus rule which they actually enforce.

Belmont’s resident assistants (RAs) are the first enforcers of rule violations on campus. They try to create a fun, casual atmosphere in the dorms, but if you break the rules, they won’t hesitate to report you. Practicing an instrument or singing loudly in your room after practice hours are over is a common rule that’s broken at a music school like Belmont. However, you won’t get away with it for long if your neighbors are trying to sleep! Students also get in trouble for violating visitation rules. Any visitors of the opposite sex have to check in at the front desk, and the door to your room must be kept open at all times while you’re hosting them. At the end of visitation hours, the RAs do a sweep of the dorms to make sure all visitors have checked out. Since they keep the visitors’ student IDs at the desk, they’ll know if you’re hiding someone who shouldn’t be there.

Having alcohol on campus is one of the more serious offenses. Residence Life takes this very seriously—your RA is not going to buy you and your underage friends alcohol, so don’t even ask. Of course, with Belmont’s awful parking situation, the most likely punishment you’ll face is a parking ticket. Security officers are notoriously strict about this. All dorms and apartments have specific areas where residents are allowed to park, so even if you’re parked somewhere else on campus, you’ll get ticketed. For the most part, Belmont students are responsible, and the University communicates its rules very clearly. Follow them, and you shouldn’t have any trouble enjoying your time at Belmont!
