3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Idaho State University is a dry campus and it expects us to adhere to the rules. Anyone caught with alcohol or drugs is immediately confronted. Noise is also strictly enforced for the comfort of everyone on campus.

5 College Junior

Campus Strictness: They understand you are in college and experiencing life on your own for the first time. They are here to help you succeed not punish you for making a mistake. They will help you get to graduation if you want to get there yourself.

Campus Strictness: Our Public Safety is awesome. They have jumped my cars many times for me. They will also get your keys out of your car if you locked them in! ISU is a dry campus, and if caught with alcohol in dorms you would get in trouble... but like with anything, if you want to find it you will.

3 College Student

Campus Strictness: There's campus security on the weekends, but as long as you keep yourself composed they're not going to stop you.

1 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The campus police make everyone constantly feel like criminals if you spend more than three minutes standing next to your car, and their parking violations are ridiculous.

Overall, ISU is a pretty laid-back atmosphere. Parking illegally is definitely the most common illegal practice on campus, and students do get caught for it constantly.

The campus is strict about the who and where of alcohol use on campus. When it comes down to it, strictness at ISU may not seem so strict just because there are not a lot of problems with rule-breaking at ISU. There is usually one incident of theft a year, a false rape report, and a few football players getting DUIs. On average, there is not a lot of rebellion among students.
