Campus Strictness: I do not live on campus but I do know that they do room checks. Other than that if you park nearby make sure to read the street signs or you'll get a parking ticket.

The campus is often strict in a stupid, Orwellian sort of way. The police dole out parking tickets like they aren’t really police, but simply meter maids, and faculty and staff have some type of third eye for delinquent behaviour. Old Dominion University’s Honor Code policy is also omnipresent—professors often require students to write the entire code (or at least the last few words) at the top of their papers and then sign it. If a student is even alleged to have cheated on a test, they are brought up on charges in ODU’s Honor Court, and they face possible expulsion or enrollment suspension. Campus faculty are strict on things like this to uphold the integrity of the students within the school—however, campus police, off and on campus, are way too involved in maintaining secure environments, like on 42nd Street.

42nd street is ODU’s party street, and no matter what the situation, police cars patrol up and down the streets, calling students out even if they are just walking in a large group. It’s almost as if beyond 42nd Street there are no cops—it’s like a ‘the world is flat’ sort of thing.
