4 College Senior

Campus Strictness: It is pretty strict. Because it is a dry campus, alcohol is prohibited anywhere on campus. Visitation hours is also strict. During the week, opposite sex is not allowed past 1am and on the weekends, they are not allowed past 2am.

Campus Strictness: Curfews are convenient, very strict drinking policy (if you get caught)

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Berry is (supposedly) a dry campus. That being said most RAs are very lenient and wont bother you if you aren't being an idiot. Police are much more interested in making sure everyone is safe than busting up parties. Don't be dumb parading around drunk and you'll be fine. While there is alcohol use on campus it isn't super widespread; a good rule of thumb is that if you look for it you'll find it, but if you don't want to see it you never will. Most professors and mandatory attendance and the small class sizes kinda makes it so you have to go to class. Visitation hours are fair (until 1am Sunday-Thursday, and till 2am on Friday and Saturday). Most female RAs will enforce this rule but some males will not.

The opinion on campus strictness depends on a specific student's year in school and what he or she has been caught for in the past. Alcohol is at the center of these issues, although the campus does not enforce the policies as much as it could. If resident assistants are tipped off, they must follow up with students, but that is more common in freshman areas than upperclassman. In addition, visitation hours are only enforced when there's controversy. If you have a guy or girl over, it may be smart to move to 24-hour common areas, but if you can’t resist, just keep it down and talk with your roommate about how you would like to handle these issues if they were to present themselves in the future.

Policies that are heavily enforced involve parking and noise. Parking issues have caused students to become creative with where they park, like in between handicapped parking spots. Even if you think a 10-minute stop isn’t that big of a deal, police officers will not hesitate to ticket you; the first offense is typically $25, and, depending on the violation, it can increase to $100. Noise issues, especially during high-stress times like finals week, are heavily enforced. Most students are respectful of their peers, but those who are not are asked to tone it down in a timely fashion, which is greatly appreciated. In addition, Berry has a very strict attendance policy. If you were to miss more than three unexcused absences, your grade can drop. For some students, this policy is a motivator to not miss a lot of class, but others find it unfair because they’re paying for the education and should be able to miss without a huge penalty. Either way, this is a policy that is not going anywhere, so if you cannot help missing a class, talk with your professor at least a week in advance to make arrangements. They truly appreciate open and honest communication from their students.
