3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: PSafe can get a bit irritating sometimes, but overall it's fine

2 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The school is currently very strict about alcohol use. The student body runs into many issues with administration about activities on campus and greek life organizations. Lafayette College just got a new president who seems to be understanding so hopefully we will see new changes.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Strictness: When I was there, the school was relatively lenient, but I have heard that they have tried to crack down on underage drinking in the past two or three years.

2 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Public Safety, though helpful, are there to break up the fun here. The alcohol policy is strict and they mostly catch people for noise violations. They patrol dorms on weekends so though people still party it is a risk if it is in your room

The three days of freshman orientation will vigorously attempt to drive this point home: don't drink if you're underage. First-year students will sit through various lectures that will spell out for them the consequences of underage drinking. From alcohol poisoning to sexual assault to legal action, underage drinking is a misdemeanor that the College claims will be strictly dealt with. That being said, the strictness of College policies still does not deter underage drinkers from procuring alcohol. Students, regardless of age, will usually succeed in attempting to get alcohol.

The campus police are particularly vigilant on the weekends. Public Safety vehicles can be seen doing rounds around the quad and the Greek houses—the most common places of belligerent behavior and/or underage drinking. If apprehended, students are written up and reported to the weekly crime log. There are instances where parents are called and students are asked to leave campus, but these are rare occasions. Aside from the policies dealing with underage drinking, the College is not particularly strict when it comes to monitoring student activity. Resident advisers, as emissaries of the Office of Residence Life, have the responsibility of maintaining "quiet hours" on their halls and ensuring that students are following community standards. RAs on duty also have the authority to write up suspicious/belligerent behavior.
