4 College Student

Campus Strictness: Rules are strict where they need to be, but it's not oppressive in the slightest.

College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Most of my answers are NA due to the fact that I haven't lived on campus yet

3 College Student

Campus Strictness: The only major concern the officers here have is giving out parking tickets. On my way to class, at least three cars have tickets on them every day.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Strictness: They seem to be focused on making money rather than preventing crime.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Honestly, the strictest policy is quiet hours at night on weekdays and the 24 hour quiet hours during exams week. Also, the parking can become pretty strict; however, guest parking for friends or family that you have come up is super lenient. If you are drinking in the dorms, you just have to be quiet about it and lock your doors. Don't drink with underage students, you are likely to get caught. The DPS can be good about just giving you a slap on the wrist and an easy to write essay or something similar. Also, parties off-campus are hardly regulated by police. They may stroll by and such but they are making sure people are not walking in the streets or causing problems.

Overall, the campus is neither very strict, nor very lenient. The strictness lingers somewhere in the middle, with some issues being more addressed and others not as much. The strictest rules come with the parking and the issuance of tickets. Other strict rules are in place regarding alcohol in dorms, underage drinking, and the use of drugs. Some of the more lenient rules are regarding new student organizations, honor code, noise violations, and visitation in the dorms. The rules regarding attendance vary depending on the teacher. Some teachers' policies are much stricter, where missing one class can lower your grade immensely. The best way to figure out which teachers have the stricter policies is to talk with students in the same program who have had the teachers in the past.

The police are seen as pretty tolerant and as being friendly and easy to get along with if you respect them. However, they will be there to break up anything if a situation occurs, leading some people to believe they are just there to break up the fun. RAs are pretty fair, too. They will talk to students in the dorm if there is a problem and will give warnings first. They are also there to talk if a student needs help and they know who to send students to regarding a problem. The administration is fairly flexible. They are helpful if needed about any situation. As long as a student approaches with respect and the willingness to listen, they are there to help.
