1 College Senior

Campus Strictness: DPS ruins everything. More importantly there is no such thing as freedom of speech on this campus.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: We have a points system here, but we don't involve the police so that's a plus. It's not uncommon for first year students to be caught for underage drinking in dorms, so be careful about consumption, especially the first few weeks. That being said, it's very rare for people to be kicked out for drinking. The administration takes drugs slightly more seriously, especially for selling. The honor code is taken very seriously and people who violate it must go in front of Honor Commission, a student panel, who hears the case and gives out any punisments

Campus Strictness: I wish the campus could be more strict with some things, but they are not, for the most part, overly strict or overly lenient.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: The campus only allows you to miss three classes (there is no such thing as an excused absence) before your grade either drops or you have to withdraw from the course. They take academics very seriously.

Campus Strictness: Professors are in charge of choosing how much class you are allowed to miss- some are stricter than others, but at a small school, if you are frequently absent, they notice. The school is lenient about visitors staying in the dorm. You better have a parking pass or you are getting a $25 fine (or more)!

Gettysburg's unofficial and evasive stance on drugs and alcohol on campus seems to be an indicator that they are here to stay. There does, however, seem to be an internal commitment to keep the College's negative publicity to a minimum. Campus strictness is appropriately severe. If you are smart about bending the rules, you will likely not suffer any consequences for your mild civil disobediences. However, if you push the limits, you will probably find that what comes around goes around.

It is not difficult to skirt by the Man at G'burg. Close your door when you are doing something you shouldn't be, and if you don't do anything to arouse suspicion, then you won't be bothered.
