3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Campo likes to shut down every party

1 College Senior

Campus Strictness: Oxy has canceled all school hosted parties and dances and have begun to crack down on student thrown parties because a few students have gotten alcohol poisonings in the past. Campus if often boring and quiet on the weekends, so if you are a big partier and you are not in Greek life, you will be very upset.

Fortunately, once you are 18+, there are a lot of great clubs in LA to party at. Even better once you're 21 and can hit the bars.

Campus Strictness: Campo can be strict on parties, but the administration does not go out of their way to get you busted. Be smart and it will all be okay.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The campus safety officers can come off strict with underage drinking but it is not as bad s you would think. When you are written up for conduct issues, you have a meeting about that issue and depending on what it is you just have to write a reflection. Just be careful about drinking and be quiet about it.

4 College Senior

Campus Strictness: I think the campus safety officers are rather chill and understand that they are watching over college students just trying to have fun. Though, when Oxy administration gets involved they are pretty strict.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

You can party at Oxy, and you can have fun. You can drink and you can even try and do other, more risqué things in your room as well, but you may get caught. That's the way college always works. No school will let you break the law or allow students to get into dangerous situations. Most students at Oxy seem to understand this and think that the written policies can be extreme or incredibly pointless, but that the enforcement of them is not very bad. While parties may be broken up, very rarely are students written up, and when they are, the penalties are never reported to be that bad for first-time offenses. Some students that have had multiple violations for drinking complain about the penalties, such as losing the ability to play in club sports. There is a good balance between strictness and understanding at Oxy, and there is very little to complain about.

In regards to other violations of campus policy though, the school is appropriately strict, but just enough that only a small percentage of surveyed students said that there was a problem. Issues such as rape and harassment are dealt with very severely, but a judicial process is in place to allow students a chance to defend themselves, too. The only complaints come from students that wish to be able to drink while underage on campus, or other students that feel the school should relax its drug policy to allow for marijuana use. Overall, there is enough strictness on campus to keep things within order and to keep students feeling safe, but things are still dealt with with an understanding attitude to ensure that students have a right to defend themselves.
