Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

The atmosphere at Etown is pretty lenient. Generally, if students don't act too stupid, then campus security will leave them alone. Underage drinking is the biggest problem, which mostly occurs during the weekends. Security will patrol and monitor particular party spots during the weekend a little more closely than during the rest of the week. The policy is that students 21 years of age or older may have a six-pack of beer, one liter of wine, one four-pack of wine coolers, or one pint of a distilled alcohol per of-age resident in the housing unit. The school is usually OK if students have more than this, as long as no underage students are present. If students are caught or accused of violations, they do have the right to appeal before an academic board. After the first violation, "points" get awarded to the student, which means that they're on probation. As long as the student doesn't violate any more policies, then the points don't affect their college life. 

RAs are generally very tolerant. Just don't make a lot of noise real late at night during the week. Academics are a huge thing and nobody likes to be kept up real late. A lot of the issues that RAs have to deal with are noise violations and the occasional roommate spat.

In regard to attendance of classes, policies depend on the professor. If they provide an attendance policy, stick with it. If a professor feels the need to outline how many absences a student can have, then they will follow that number and drop grades significantly if the rule is broken. If students skip enough classes, they will get reported to the College, which can lead to things like counseling or extracurricular sanctions. Just don't break the professor's policy and things will be fine.

Facts & Statistics

Students Are Most Likely to Get Caught...
  • Being noisy during quiet hours
  • Cheating
  • Drinking underage
  • Parking illegally
Visitation Policies
The main thing with having visitors over is getting their cars registered to park on campus. If it's less than a 48-hour visit, there won't be a problem. If it lasts more than three days, however, security can ask them to leave. Just make sure to get permission from the roommate(s) and the RA. The school is generally relaxed about having visitors in the dorms, as long as they respect school property and policies.
Did You Know?
There are events almost every weekend that are sponsored by student groups. Student IDs are required for events that are not open to the public, including dances and game nights, but students can request passes for guests a few days ahead of the event.
