Campus Strictness: The guys and girls are in separate dorms, but there is intervisitation on the weekends and Wednesday night. I personally like that there is no intervis most of the time as if allows students peace and quite in their dorms without distractions from the presence of the opposite sex to study. It also permits students of each gender to get to know each other in a better way without the pressure to always be dating. There are some on-campus apartments for upperclassmen where intervis is allowed every night. During intervis, the door of the room with someone of the opposite gender in it much be kept open at least four inches (just put a shoe in it) and a light other than a TV much also be on. Guests must also be signed in and out.The dorms have lobbies where students of both genders are allowed in until midnight during the week and I think 1 am on the weekends.There are absolutely no alcohol or drugs allowed on campus as anytime. Students of age are allowed to drink off campus, but are expected to behave soberly when they return to campus.

Campus Strictness: Grove City College has high standards when it comes to school policies. Academics are a priority so students do not come to this conservative college to party. The college recognizes this and makes every effort to enforce the rules that students originally agreed to in coming here.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Grove City College enforces a zero tolerance policy with regard to alcohol and drug use on campus. Students over 21 are allowed to leave campus to drink responsibly, as long as they come back sober. While some students have hidden and used alcohol in their rooms, student residential assistants and resident directors are required to report any drug violations and any underage or on-campus alcohol. Off-campus parties are not permitted to serve alcohol, and fraternities have lost their charters for such alcohol violations. Because Grove City College is a private institution and does not receive any government aid, campus security is not required to report any alcohol or drug violations to the town police force. Campus security will enforce rules, but violations are dealt with in house and kept low key. Grovers are all-around smart people and tend to keep any illicit activities undercover. Blowing that cover leads to suspension or expulsion.

However, partiers suggest befriending campus security to increase the odds of a lenient look the other way. The administration and campus security rarely performs room checks, even though College policy gives them the right. However, since campus security faces few real crisis situations, they will often crack down on petty vehicle violations, trespassing, and "improper use" of grassy spots that look inviting for Frisbee. All said, campus security prefers to befriend rather than badger students. A security guard may even join a student-worship group before locking the chapel doors on a Saturday night.
