Campus Strictness: Our campus is very strict with academic honor codes and cheating. Most things that have to be submitted are done so via the computer and a hard copy in class. When submitted online, the computer will give a percentage of how similar it is to someone else's submission. If caught cheating you will not receive a grade and have to talk with the head of the school.

Campus Strictness: I think it is difficult to rate the "strictness" of a university as a whole. There are so many departments, colleges, and divisions that they function very separately.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Over the past several years, FSU has been trying to tone down the party-school reputation and put more emphasis on academics and athletics. Underage drinking is the biggest problem on campus, and the FSUPD are ever-vigilant when it comes to monitoring on-campus festivities. The quiet, subdued affairs generally don't have any problems. When things get loud is when the FSUPD steps in. This is not to say you still can't have a good time. On-campus parties are frequent, especially during football season. However, to avoid trouble with the school, it's best to party off campus. Just be aware of what you're doing, keep things under control, and party smart. Respect the police and they'll respect you.

Campus police don't play around when is comes to underage drinking. FSU has a strict policy about that, as well as drug use. Expulsion is not unheard of, and several Greek houses have been censured by the University. As long as things are kept under control, the campus cops won't break up the party. As soon as things begin to get rowdy, be prepared to see the blue flashing lights pull up outside. The main thing to watch out for is the Tallahassee Police Department. They have established a Party Patrol that not only roams the streets, but also responds to neighborhood complaints. These guys do not mess around. If they show up, expect them to write a ticket or two. If they don't show up, you have nothing to worry about. If you don't get too loud, you should be fine.
