Campus Strictness: There are rules like no alcohol and no opposite gender in the rooms after 2am, but other than that it is a pretty relaxed school.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Drinking is not allowed in the dorms but mostly everyone does it. Parking is free but parking tickets are given out like free candy. Most ras will turn a head with drinking.

Campus Strictness: I personally think it is great that my school discourages drug use and alcohol use in ALL dorms because if students are underaged, they should be discouraged. However, in dorms that students are over 21 I feel it is a bit odd. Rules are strict, and when you think you're not doing anything too bad, and you could get let off with a warning... you are wrong. I once had a male (opposite sex) visitor in my room 20 minutes after curfew, and I got documented without even a chance for explanation when in truth we just lost track of time.

Campus Strictness: Because it is a "dry" campus, it may be seen as strict to some people. There are many rules in the dorms such as quiet hours, no drug/alcohol tolerance, ect., however, these rules help keep the environment safe and comfortable for all the residents. From my own experience, I have found these rules and the strictness of the campus to be quite helpful in creating a great college experience.

There are often misconceptions about small, religion-affiliated universities, especially one like CLU in the tiny community of Thousand Oaks. People sometimes think that schools like CLU are on-the-dot extremely strict and only wish to break up any kind of fun. This may be true for some schools, but not CLU. Though CLU is a dry (no alcohol allowed) campus, most students usually get away with drinking in their dorm rooms or at parties off campus. If students are caught with alcohol in the dorm rooms, the penalty issued usually depends on the RA (resident assistant). All RAs are students, and are understanding and lenient. Some will either pour out the alcohol or just give a warning for next time. Though alcohol is easily available if students know where to look, most students drink reasonably and rarely get too out of hand.

CLU also has a rule that the opposite sex cannot be in a student's dorm room between the hours of 2 a.m. and 7 a.m. Naturally, boys often stay in girls’ rooms and vice versa during these hours and rarely get caught. The policy isn’t taken seriously, and most RAs are lenient regarding this rule. Campus Public Safety works hard to maintain a safe environment for students, and officers are all friendly and easy to get along with. Many students respect CPS and other authority officials, and students often stop to talk and catch up with them. CPS primarily deals with the happenings on campus. Parties are mainly off campus, and the Thousand Oaks Police Department sometimes gets called by neighbors who want to break up the party.

Facts & Statistics

  • Drinking in the residence halls
  • Having someone of the opposite sex in your room after 2 a.m.

Visitation Policies
Residential students are allowed to have guests sleep over in their dorm rooms. There are no sign-in sheets; some students let their RA know a guest is spending the night-some students do not. Either way, it doesn't matter if students tell their RA or not since most RAs are pretty lax on guests as long as students are comfortable with the arrangements. There is, however, a CLU residence hall policy that someone of the opposite sex cannot be in the dorm room between 2 a.m. and 7 a.m. Most students get away with this, but some of the stricter RAs will write students up if they catch a student of the opposite sex during these hours.
