1 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Unless you are lucky and have a cool RA, they are very strict with drinking, drugs and noise, but even with a cool RA it is difficult. If the dorm gets a little too noisy, there will be a visit from the RA.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: Drinking in the dorms is strictly prohibited and you will get kicked out if you get caught. Most people don't get caught though. We have ABC officers who give out a lot of underage drinking tickets downtown.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The school is not very strict on underage drinking unless you're downtown.

2 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: I feel as though ECU pays too much attention to things that don't really matter. RA's don't really pay attention to whether or not anyone is being overly loud, drunk, or high. Everything is lenient, but to the point where it makes certain things hard to enjoy - especially sleeping at night.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: They catch people very often but the punishments are to bad. Just writing papers about the incident

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

ECU has an extensive list of violations for which students may be fined, but in general, ECU is casual, except in the cases of a few serious offenses. The Student Code of Conduct, called the Cluebook, can be found online at Of course it is full of legal jargon, but students should scan it, because ignorance and inebriation are not excuses for breaking the rules. Students used to drink underage and smoke pot without much discretion in the dorms, but with the zero-tolerance policy, in addition to legal action, students are required to leave campus housing if they are caught. Some students used to joke about the horrors of meeting with the "mean dean" about drug law, liquor law, and honor code violations. Lately, though, the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities has focused on educating students about the impact their actions could have on their academic careers and criminal records rather than concentrating on punishment of bad behavior. Parking and Transportation officers look for ticketing opportunities, but ECU Police, RAs, and counselors have better things to do, like protecting students from themselves and others. Of course, the best way to not get caught is to be quiet. If students want to get caught, they should be loud and stupid when breaking rules.
