4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The campus police are really relaxed about things for the most part, RA's as well. As long as you aren't puking/in need of serious help, they are okay with most things.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Strictness: If you're not an idiot, you wont get caught. Just don't throw up in the communal dorm bathroom because if the RA find you he will send you to the hospital no exceptions.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Campus is not very strict, just don't do anything to piss any of the campus police off.

5 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: You can get away with most things as long as youre responsible and arent making a huge scene. Just use common sense. no ones out to get you but the'they'll catch you if you make them.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Muhlenberg's strictness can be summed up in one phrase: don't be stupid. If you're a freshman with your door open and alcohol out when your RA is doing rounds, of course you're going to get busted. If you copy and paste your paper from an online source, you're going to get caught. Generally, RAs (and even sometimes campus police) apply to the "what I don't know can't hurt me" rule. The administration's a bit more strict, but if you're honest in your academic work, you'll be fine.

Campus rules are not necessarily lenient. However, Campus Safety doesn't spend every waking moment looking to punish students, either. You really have to be trying in order to "get into trouble." In other words, if you are doing something that could lead to consequences, keep the door closed, the noise down, and be discrete. Campus Safety will usually leave the party alone. Otherwise, a resident adviser or Campus Safety will notice, and there will be due consequences. On the flip side, if a student is in particular trouble, they will be taken care of and their usual punishment will be lessened (if not eliminated). It is also important to keep in mind that RAs do check all of the dorms before leaving for breaks. So, be sure to hide anything that could earn you a fine. The RAs do not look through every drawer and corner for anything that could get you into trouble, though. But, if they see it, they have to report it.

Some students feel that the campus police can be overprotective, especially when parties and alcohol are involved. But it is important to remember that the campus police are not there to spoil students’ fun. They really do care about every student’s safety and hope that people get the proper help they need. Also, most students would agree that Campus Safety is fair when a student breaks a rule. As long as the student is respectful and cooperative, they will very rarely receive an arbitrary punishment.
