Campus Strictness: The policies regarding visitations in dorms are unacceptable. For an institution that boasts such esteem of students, no trust is instilled in them. Virtually powerless to make decisions.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Loyola is pretty strict with their rules, so you must adhere to them closely.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: Loyola has a no-tolerance policy for drugs and alcohol, which is to be expected. Campus Safety is notorious for breaking up off-campus parties, which is rather unnecessary. Also, the nearly obscene emphasis placed on plagiarism in EVERY class is a bit excessive at times. It can also be very stressful to be constantly bombarded with threats of 0% and failing classes and academic punishments.

4 College Senior

Campus Strictness: The rules established are very firm and it's hard to get around them unless you have help from someone who has access to the system.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Loyola University has a good/average rule book/code of ethics.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Students agree that the easiest way to keep campus security from catching you in an illicit act is to be smart about it. Loyola's police force is not out to stop students from drinking in the dorms, but if a situation gets out of hand and they have to intervene, they will. By being smart about whatever they are doing, students can avoid getting written up and having to go to things like Alcohol Awareness meetings. Chicago police also won't go out of their way to bust students engaged in liquid revelry. They have much more important things to do in Chicago than hauling a bunch of drunken college students off to jail for the night, such as saving people's lives. The first time they come to your house, they'll likely just tell you to keep the noise down. If things appear to be out of hand, or if they return to the party more than once in a night, only then will the CPD break up a party and begin to think about arresting people.

Resident Assistants can be a constant thorn in student's sides. RAs theoretically exist to watch over new students and provide assistance in times of emergency. Unfortunately, there seem to be an abundance of RAs at Loyola who believe their job is to seek out every minor infraction perpetrated by students, and prosecute it to the fullest degree of the University's bylaws. The University does not make it easy on its RAs, of course, forbidding them to go to student-thrown parties on or off campus. Many students find themselves tip-toeing through their halls in order to avoid getting cited for a noise violation. In an ideal world, Loyola would place more trust in the ability of its undergraduates to act as adults.
