3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Very strict on drugs, lenient on underage drinking.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Strictness: I'd say everything is handled well. They stress the importance of drug/alcohol free dorms and do a good job trying to eradicate it, though, there's only so much they can do without be invasive of privacy. They are like hawks with parking. Very strict--bordering on unreasonable. One of my friends received a ticket because one of their tires was touching the white line of their parking spot.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: Police are every where on popular weekends such as homecoming, Halloween, and little 500. We also have lots of under cover cops at our tailgates. There are also dorm cops who walk around the dorms at night.

Campus Strictness: The honor code is what they're most strict about and is the worst process to go through. It's the professors word against yours, even if you haven't done anything wrong.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: From what I have heard, Indiana University isn't any more strict than other comparable universities. They have several policies for underage drinking, mainly a fine and the underage drinker has to take a class about alcohol and drug use. Indiana University is a little more strict about drug use than it is about drinking. The individual in question typically goes to jail for a night and they have to pay a larger fine.

The IUPD doesn't want to deal with you any more than you want to deal with them, but if you ask the officers, they'll tell you stories. One officer arrested a woman for public indecency because she was urinating on the sidewalk . . . within plain view of the police station. Another officer was driving behind a vehicle that wasn't at all suspicious, until the driver, convinced he was being followed by a cop, poured the to-go cup full of vodka he was sipping from out the window. It happened to splatter on the windshield of the policeman behind him. The IUPD doesn't spend time prowling the bars, waiting for drunken people to stumble home, but if you call attention to yourself by being a moron, you're going to get nabbed. In other words, don't be stupid, and you won't get in trouble.

The student body doesn't cease to participate in any extracurricular activities because of a fear of police, RAs, or the student judicial board, but knowing that there are indeed outlets designed to protect you from your own bad decision-making can leave time for rationale to set in. The cops catch a lot of people doing illegal things, but they don't seem to put too much of a cramp in IU's party style, particularly when it comes to alcohol. A force to be reckoned with? Hardly, but police will put students in their place if they must.
