It’s not uncommon to hear students joking about their latest parking fine being put toward the construction of a new dorm on campus. In fact, Campus Safety (or "Campo," as students refer to them) spends much of their day issuing parking violations to those unlucky enough to have misread the tomes of parking regulations. Aside from the ill-fated car parked up the hill before 3:30 p.m. or in an active loading zone, the most common disciplinary action stems from getting caught playing drinking games or smoking weed. The first semester is the most dangerous time for first-years, and it often takes a few run-ins with RAs and Campo for students up the hill to figure out what is acceptable for weekend behavior and what is taboo. While the University instituted a much-discussed points system in 2011, there is still some speculation as to how this system will pan out in the future. As it currently stands, any imaginable infraction, from underage drinking all the way to dealing drugs, is assigned a point value with an associated disciplinary action. This system is steps above the former ambiguous disciplinary policy, but it is more actively enforced than the previous policy.
Generally speaking, Campus Safety exists to keep students safe, and when possible, they tend to let students slide and deal with things in-house as opposed to involving the local police department. Once out of first-year housing, Campo and Residential Life are considerably more lenient and tend to give students their space, as long as students respect property and keep out of trouble.
