At Wooster, the atmosphere is generally not very strict. RAs, administration, and Security & Protective Services are usually pretty lenient as long as you aren’t a person who is constantly causing problems. If a student gets in trouble, it is usually for something alcohol related: underage drinking, walking outside with an open container, or playing drinking games. If you aren't obvious and try to stay out of trouble, you’ll be fine. Security doesn’t go around campus and search for students to give alcohol tickets to.
In 2011, Wooster hired a new director of Security & Protective Services. This director was formerly the Chief of Police for the Wooster Police Department and has served as a patrol officer, detective, and SWAT team member for more than 24 years. Because of this change, students anticipate that Security & Protective Services will change its easy-going ways and begin to crack down on students.
