The two most frustrating run-ins a student will have with Furman's Public Safety are for alcohol and parking violations. Many students accumulate hefty parking fines throughout the year that are difficult to pay off. The only time officers seem to let up a little bit is on the weekends. Alcohol violations also have harsh monetary fines, and a note sent home to the student's parents. Although many people are able to get away with alcohol on campus, the consequences seem unduly harsh for students who are over 21.
Although Public Safety doesn't make Furman's policies, they are certainly good at enforcing them. Of course, students appreciate having a safe campus, but most of them wish Public Safety restricted their lives to a much lesser degree.
