Campus Strictness: Best Advice 'Dont Be Stupid and Don't Get Caught' – We're on a mountain in the middle of nowhere. During the week students work very hard so on the weekends, parties are raging. Don't smoke in your dorm, don't drink in front of faculty/staff if you're underage, don't smoke in buildings accept the Happy Valley common room. It's kind of a live and let live situation. Most of the campus drinks and/or smokes weed but the party community has a pretty decent relationship with the chem free social circle.

Campus Strictness: Make Your Own Decisions – I don't want to make it seem like we're a bunch of hoodlums, but Marlboro will allow you to do what you want. There seems to be the official policy of treating people like adults with the less talked about policy of not getting in people's way. If you're going to make a mistake, it's on your head, the administration doesn't care too much if you're not bothering other people; that is, security guards aren't sent out to find drug users and party-goers. The college is there to provide a place to study and live, not to force you to make the right decisions. If you're forced, how are they decisions?

Campus Strictness: Marlboro has no campus police. We have SLAs who are required to report on drug and alcohol usage. The punishment, from what I know, is a discussion with the associate dean of students and a fine.

Campus Strictness: The current policy is that RAs aren't supposed to be enforcers, so people can go to them when they need help. In accordance with national law, faculty and staff can't be around drug and underage alcohol use without jeopardizing their position, so they almost always stay away from activities where they anticipate this might be going on.

Niche User

Campus Strictness: We don't have campus police. RAs don't police you either. The idea is you should be able to go to your RA if you have a drug or alcohol problem, so they aren't going to turn you in. There are only two people on campus whose job it is to enforce our drug and alcohol policy (the SLAs). If you get caught drinking underage, it's a five-dollar fine. Just don't get caught.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

If you go on the roof of the Happy Valley Dorm, you'll be fined more than $150. But if you use marijuana, cocaine, or drink alcohol underage, Marlboro will fine you a whopping $5! Marlboro is not very strict about many issues. The College trusts students to follow rules for their own safety, and, for the most part, that works out well. People make pretty good choices on their own regarding drugs and alcohol. Additionally, students work well with the administration.

There is constant dialogue about everything at Marlboro. From vandalism to parties that get out of control, the "higher-ups" and students are always talking. Most of the time, excellent compromises and solutions come out of these open forums. These discussions are usually scheduled outside of Town Meeting but have a similar quality in the way certain issues are debated. Whether you're a freshman, custodian, or the president, everyone seems to have a voice.
