Campus Strictness: Okay, I'm tired of writing. Isn't this survey supposed to end now?

5 College Junior

Campus Strictness: If you don't do anything insane (and conspicuously insane, I might add), not one person will bother you.

Campus Strictness: Great school, with great Professors. Most of my Professors have been extremely helpful in regards to tips and explanations when I am having difficulty with something. Also, I really enjoy the laid-back feel of this college. Everyone seems friendly, outgoing, and ready to make new friends. FGCU is a great school.

Campus Strictness: Our school is a no tolerance dry school. No alcohol or drugs are supposed to be on campus no matter if the student is of age or not.

Campus Strictness: Its definitely not the most strict campus around. When living on campus, it depends a lot on who your RA is whether or not theyre super strict. They generally dont care about visitation in dorms that much but they do care about noise and quiet hours. Campus Police are not really a nuisance. People generally respect them and they seem very helpful. They will get you for parking violations but the tickets are only $30 if its only a matter of having a decal. If they catch you with underage drinking, they'll almost definitely write you up.

Students are divided on school policies. Some students believe that the policies are easy to follow and affect the academic and social life of the school in a positive manner. Other students have a different opinion, believing that the enforcement of policies is becoming worse. Some students might walk into a hallway and smell pot (something RAs are supposed to strictly monitor) or see people smoking joints. In terms of smoking cigarettes, there is supposed to be a strict fine for not using designated smoking areas, even though most people who smoke in nondesignated areas don't get in trouble. Be warned, though: you may get stuck behind a smoker walking down the halls and have to breathe it. 

Drinking is another issue. FGCU sometimes has a "they're gonna drink anyway" attitude. Parties are occasionally busted. Overall, the policies at FGCU are just like any other school. Whether these rules get enforced is up to the school, though.
