3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Campus is strict on alcohol and drug use. The campus is dry so there is a zero tolerance policy when it comes to drugs and alcohol. Much of the time getting a violation from the campus police could ruin your chances at staying at the university. However, the administration gives students an opportunity to go to special classes and community service to allow violators to stay. The administration also disciplines students who get in trouble with Radford City police.

4 College Junior

3 College Junior

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Radford is a dry campus now but if people want to drink they'll find ways. Strictness is mostly up to the RAs. they can choose to look the other way if they want.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Students aren't allowed to park on campus until after 6pm and some students have class directly at 6 and they need to be able to park on campus because they are taking this late night class. If one were to park on campus before 6pm the parking authorities will give you a ticket. It would be better if students could park on campus a little bit earlier

Radford is incredibly inflexible when it comes to the rules, regulations, and standards set forth by the Standards of Student Conduct. Rules are ironclad, and punishment is swiftly doled out. Resident assistants (RAs) are enforcers of these rules, and while many students say their RA is cool, there is always one who will not bend or refuses to look the other way. Drugs and drinking are almost considered intolerable offenses, and city and campus police have no time for excuses or explanations. Students are not punished on a case-by-case basis, and nothing is taken on merit. All rules are applied the same way to everyone, no matter the circumstances.

Underage drinking and drug policies have been taken to heart by both the University and the local police, and arrests and charges have been more prevalent in recent years. The school also works with the local police force in order to charge students on campus for any off-campus offenses, such as underage drinking. Many students find these policies unfair, and not a weekend goes by without a story of a police bust at a party and many tickets being handed out.
