Campus Strictness: The officials know boundaries but also know leniency.

College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Some of the campus safety officers are very nice and respected on campus. Some on the other hand, are not friendly, seem to not want to help the students, and are not understanding. I would have to say there is good and bad, they are very strict, and unfair to the students sometimes.

Campus Strictness: I've never had an issue with the campus being too strict. The RAs are chill and won't write you up unless you're dangerously drunk or have a bottle obviously placed in your room and reek of alcohol. Winter Park police are the ones to watch out for though. Also, in off-campus housing the neighbors tend to go a little crazy with noise complaints and call the police when they think things get out of hand.

Campus Strictness: Rollins College is very strict on everything but this is why it manages to maintain it's high academic ratings and succeed in academics continuously. It's an incredible feeling to know that no matter how strict they are on us students, the people working for campus safety do truly care for the students and many get to know us personally.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Rollins college is HIGHLY strict when it comes to plagiarism. We even have an honor code, that in many cases we must write in all of our papers as a pledge. If caught plagiarizing there is a committee that will review your case. Depending on the severity, consequences include expulsion, or a paper to your teacher on a given topic.

Rollins is pretty laid-back about most things. Campus Safety does not try to get kids in trouble, and they generally won’t get you in trouble unless they have to for some reason or another. Rollins is not a dry campus, so once you turn 21, you are allowed to drink freely. There are exceptions to this rule for sorority and fraternity houses, which remain dry even when you are 21 years of age. Also, the freshman and sophomore dorms are dry since the students living in these dorms are under the age of 21. If students are behaving unaccordingly, they might get a written citation from Campus Safety or an RA. If you get more than two written citations, you are forced to have a meeting with the school, and the punishment is decided from there.

Police in Winter Park are pretty strict since they are bored and have nothing else to do but break up college house parties. The police won’t come into dorms or other Rollins buildings unless someone calls them. Campus Safety, on the other hand, has permission to roam about wherever they please on campus. Police will often break up parties and make people leave, but nothing else will happen. Rollins, for the most part, is a relaxed campus. Its main goal is to keep students safe—not to get them in trouble.
