3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: This school can be a little overbearing when it comes to student life. Most of the kids here are home schooled so the admin does't want parents to worry wether little timmy and susie are safe while they're away from home.

Campus Strictness: Students are expected to be honest and honorable in all things and observe Christian behavior

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: The rules were meat to be followed.

Campus Strictness: Visitation hours are limited and very strictly enforced (responses to even unintentional violations sometime include loss of visitation privileges)--Thu/Fri/Sat/Sun in the evenings. Things are more relaxed once you are an upperclassman and can live in the on-campus apartments.

No dancing allowed on campus (although sometimes there are dance classes). Drinking & drugs are heavily regulated and pretty uncommon.

Couples are supposed to appear 'approachable' at all times, have light on & door open when visiting in dorms, etc. Approachable is interpreted by the RAs, chaplains etc--it depends on how strict they are. Apparently there is an absurd rule (NOT in the student handbook but was allegedly told to the chaplains during training) that when people of opposite gender are in the same room, there must be at least two peoples' feet on the floor at all times. 'Extended hugs or kisses' are actually forbidden by handbook but that isn't too strictly enforced.

There is a lot of stress about dating relationships on campus. I've had very reserved, discreet friends get repeatedly, viciously harassed by other students when appearing in public with their significant others. Administration tries to crack down on this but they can't do much when the perpetrator can't be found or recognized. The whole dating culture at LeTU is beyond weird--people are expected to date (at least girls, because there's a very high guy:girl ratio) but the conservative Christian culture combines with lots of socially-unskilled types to create a lot of resentment against 'awkward couples' (read: anyone who spends a lot of time with their SO, holds hands, hugs a lot, etc)

Campus Strictness: Honestly, for a Christian school this is a pretty friendly environment. Stay out of trouble and you'll be fine.
