College Freshman

Campus Strictness: I guess it depends what you are looking for. If you want to do drugs and drink and get away with it then this school is perfect for you. You can go to class but then party all you want at night. Especially from thursday to sunday. But if you want to go to school to learn that you are probably going to wish they enforced the policies more.

Campus Strictness: The administration is fairly lenient in most respects; however, if you do something really stupid you will suffer dearly from it (judicial violations and expulsion in some cases, depending on the severity of the violation).

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Bentley has a very strict honor code. Academically the school is very strict. Dorm life can be noisy, but after quiet hours the dorm will calm down. Even in the weekend student go outside of the dorms to party. RA's are on duty every night from the start of quiet hours till 7am. They roam the hall to keep the noise level down. Some RA's are lenient and others are strict.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Bentley is a remarkably liberal school in this category. As long as you are not attempting to do something remarkably unintelligent you will most likely never have to have a run in with RA's, campus police, or really any authority figure.

Campus Strictness: the cops at bentley arent trying to get you in trouble, in fact they dont want to, so if you dont give them a blatant reason to do so you will be fine

The presence of Campus Police is hard to ignore, and generally, students like the idea of being safe and protected. If CP can help you out, they will. They usually want to help you get out of potential trouble first, but if you talk back you could end up receiving punishment intead. However, CP cracks down rather harshly on parking violations. Students usually end up with at least one ticket before graduation. The same level of strictness also applies to the Resident Advisors. They do nightly rounds through the buildings, and for the most part just enforce quiet hours. There are also room inspections once a semester to pick up things like fire hazards, drug paraphernalia, and underaged alcohol. They most often break up loud parties and catch people for smoking pot in their rooms.

The idea of campus strictness can be viewed from the classroom. The problems the campus has with students cheating on exams or copying papers has become an increasing concern to the administration. Their attempts to curb the problem include access for all professors to plagiarism software and newly created and enforced guidelines to convict a cheater. The crime is not to be taken lightly, as Bentley is constantly lauded in the media for having one of the first centers for business ethics in the country. The penalty for being caught cheating is almost as severe as being caught with an illicit drug—suspension and/or expulsion.
