Campus Strictness: The policies that this school have bordered on the outrageous at times, where oftentimes even the slightest amounts of noise can get you in trouble.

Campus Strictness: I think that the strictness of policy matches the culture of drinking and academic integrity. When the university sees that student conduct as grown increasingly inappropriate, PSAs are emailed and posted on social media as a means of checks and balances on their behavior. Just recently we got an email reminding the Emory community about the seriousness of the Honor Code.

Campus Strictness: Strictness is a joke here. I wish they would crack down on underage drinking more because so many people report sexual abuse here that perhaps it would help if people could party safely instead of worrying about spiked drinks

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: There isn't much to say about the strictness at my school.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: it makes everyone feel safe.

In general, Emory is not overly strict. Being a presitigious and exclusive school, the University holds its students to a high standard and does not feel the need to excessively monitor their behaviors. Unless you are engaging in obviously illegal behaviors in public or blatantly cheating, it is unlikely you will ever have any trouble with the faculty and or administration. While the campus police are often seen on and around campus, they seem to watch from a distance with the occasional traffic violation as an exception. Simply put, if you are smart about the things you do, you will not find yourself in trouble.

When you do get caught for various violations, there are different ways the school goes about it. Often you will have to meet with a faculty member involved with the student conduct counsel or attend a conduct counsel hearing comprised of peers who will listen to your side of the story and determine an outcome based on what they believe is fair. This is a unique way of going about things, and it is relieving to have peers who understand the situation as opposed to an older, out-of-touch staff member who is unable to relate.
