4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: GTPD officers are really nice and try not to get people in trouble if they don't have to. But if someone's safety is threatened or if illegal activity is taking place and they have to intervene, they do so very strictly

Campus Strictness: Again, it all depends where you're living (or what your ethnicity is *cough cough*). In most cases, the environment is kept safe and under control. If you're not causing any problems, then you aren't cause for concern for the campus enforcement.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Good at enforcing the law while being polite. Passive aggressive.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The campus police look out for our safety and don't harass us, and most students are discrete enough about drinking and other activities that there aren't any real problems with the rules. Almost no one here is stupid enough to cheat on a test either.

Georgia Tech has many traditions among the student body, and many of them somehow involve breaking the rules on campus. If you get caught "stealing the T" (the massive first letter of the word "TECH" on the school's main administrative building, Tech Tower), expect the wrath of the entire world to come down upon you. The average fraternity party, however, is of much less concern to the campus authorities. Remember, Tech is in the middle of a big city, so those in power are often more concerned with serious crimes such as rape and assault befalling its students.

Many believe that campus police will allow a certain level of underage drinking, simply because they realize they can't completely stop it. If you practice common sense and good judgment, it is relatively easy to stay out of trouble and enjoy a good Tech experience.
