Biola is pretty lenient when it comes to campus security, mainly because everyone is so laid-back and not liable to do anything illegal or out of the question. Students are rarely found doing anything that would be considered "questionable," and the Campus Safety team includes some of the nicest people on campus, although they can be very strict when they need to be. There aren't too many rules that make students feel restricted. One big thing at Biola that some may not be used to is the rule of "open hours." Open hours are basically hours during the week when the opposite sex can be in your dorm hall. Usually, this is Monday, Wednesday, and Friday through Sunday, with the weekdays being from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m., and the weekends being from 2 p.m. to 11 p.m. Some students find this rule ridiculous, but for the most part, they are fine with it. Off-campus apartments don't enforce this, in addition to the Thompson on-campus apartments, thus attracting plenty of students as the years go on. In the dorms, the RAs are great people who are there to help you out in any situation or will leave you alone if need be; they're basically a resource to help accentuate your college experience. Biola encourages students to get involved with them and the hall events.
Biola students are all "on contract," which means that they can't have drugs, alcohol, or engage in sexual promiscuity on campus. If a student were to break any of these rules, depending on the gravity of the matter, expulsion would probably be the end result, so Biola does take things very seriously. However, this rarely happens, as not only are students encouraged to not partake in such things, but they also encourage one another to stay away from these situations.
