3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: I only put it's okay because I am a student and of course students would like for the schools to lay off on some rules. But other than that, they aren't really that bad of rules to follow. It's the standard rules but the community is pretty fun so over time you tend to not mind having rules.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: They only don't allow any drinking or drugs.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: They are very strict on the very illegal things, such as drinking on campus, alcohol in the dorms, and drug use. If you are found out, you are in a lot of trouble. However, with parking, they aren't consistently strict. I see many people not getting tickets who should and the one time my friend messed up, she got a ticket. And girls and guys can stay over at other people's dorm regardless of gender. No one has said anything regarding that even though there is technically a rule.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Baton Rouge is pretty average when it comes to their strictness. If you are smart and don't bring attention to yourself, the police will leave you alone. They do give a good amount of DUIs though.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: I have only had a two experiences with the campus police and both were positive. I once forgot where I parked my car, and the police drove me around until I found it. While tailgating at an LSU game, the campus police asked to see our id's, but didn't do any harm to us. As long as your respectful, they respect you back.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Campus strictness is kind of a mixed bag. You can get away with a lot, but not murder (or growing pot in your room). LSU is usually looking out for underage drinkers on campus, except during football game days, and most of the dorms don't allow alcohol. Students in the on-campus apartments have less restrictions, but if you are living in a dorm, you have to obide by their rules. RAs will search your room, so it's important to make sure your coffee pots, booze, and anything else illegal is locked away when you are not around. Campus strictness depends completely on where you end up living. People in the Pentagon throw keg parties on the weekends without having any problems, while students in West Laville have to write essays if they are caught with a hot plate. 

Game day tends to be the most conflicting day for students that have run-ins with campus police. Some cops allow students to run wild on LSU game days, while others are looking to hand out as many MIPs as possible. However, it's still hard to use the word "strict" when the entire campus has been turned into party grounds. For off-campus students, the major quip is with DUIs. If you are driving drunk in Baton Rouge, you will get caught. But you should always designate a driver for personal safety.
