Campus Strictness: I've got a bunch of friends who were put on probation because of either having alcohol in the dorms or drinking till they pass out and sent to hospitals by hopcops. Cops are very good at shutting down parties and busting smoking

Campus Strictness: It is very inhibitory for students not involved in Greek Life and under legal drinking age, but once 21 there are off campus bars

Campus Strictness: The policies are strict about doing anything illegal, but at the same time they want to protect the students and keep their best interests in mind.

Campus Strictness: As far as alcohol use, it depends on your RA. Most of them are pretty lenient, and will only write you up if they get complaints, or happen to find you using it. Johns Hopkins is very strict about the honor code; if violated, you could face dismissal. Instructors don't care whether you missed class or not, some kids learn better from spending that class time reading the textbook. If your grades are good without going to class then it's fine. But in general going to class is the best idea; that's part of what you're paying for, and unless you have a friend in that class telling you what's going on, like with midterms and stuff, you kind of miss some important things. If you are taking writing/discussion based courses, and for large classes like intro physics, chemistry and biology, attendance is part of your grade, and you're only hurting yourself if you don't go.

Everyone agrees that you can minimize your chances of getting caught by not drinking or doing drugs in dorm common areas or outside. It’s also a good idea to keep all parties in the dorms quiet and keep doors shut. RAs have the power to give warnings for drugs or alcohol. Although the school claims to have a no-tolerance policy, students generally get three warnings before being thrown out. (Be aware, however, that since drinking in the dorms is forbidden, anyone caught in a room where people are drinking will receive an alcohol warning. If you are worried that someone may be in danger due to substance abuse, however, do not be afraid to call HERO or your RA. They care more about people’s well-being than about issuing warnings.) "Hop cops" want to help students stay safe. Although they can arrest students who are violent or rowdy, they don’t usually do so. As one student pointed out, campus has an ethics committee that enforces infractions for plagiarism, and it is very strict. For substance infractions, if you don’t flaunt that you are breaking the rules, you are unlikely to get in trouble.

Campus strictness is not really an issue. People do get caught, but there are very seldom serious consequences to infractions. When there are consequences, they may range from having your parents called to being expelled from housing or from the University. In most circumstances, the consequences are not great enough to deter students from breaking rules. They just need to remember to use caution. However, campus strictness becomes a severe issue when it comes to cheating, as it is typically enforced with seriousness and severe consequences.
