3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: It actually is not that bad unless you are trying to have fun late at night.

2 College Senior

Campus Strictness: School policies are a joke and often ras will not uphold them. Easy to get away with a lot. Spo cops are the worst, only there to give parking tickets and probably over paid

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: There are quiet hours for the dorms especially at finals time.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: There are a lot of things that the security guards do but they do not create the rules they just follow the schools rules.

Campus Strictness: For me it's good. I don't really do anything illegal and I like that it's enforced so much because people usually cooperate.

Students are pretty split down the middle about campus strictness. The only thing that can be agreed on is that getting caught is entirely dependent on the individual. There are some tensions between campus security and students, mostly due to some students' thinking that security doesn’t do much for them. In reality, the student police officers (“SPO cops”) do a lot of good for the campus community, such as keeping nonstudents and townies off campus or jumpstarting cars in the winter. They know that students want to have fun, and as long as they’re responsible about it, SPO cops aren’t going to rain on your parade

Overall, it’s more about respect and responsibility at Luther than it is about rules. Along with the SPO cops, resident assistants in dorms have the power to bust students, but most choose to use that power to keep students acting normally rather than to keep them from enjoying themselves. Even so, if you’re caught by an RA doing something really dumb, you may be written up with further charges and possible meetings to follow. Too many infractions from either the SPO cops or the RAs will result in a student being put on probation or getting kicked off campus. Although this sounds strict, it’s much better than the alternative of the Decorah police, who lick their chops at the chance to bust any and all college students they can.
