Rowan is pretty lenient about the rules when it comes to misdemeanors. However, if a student actually commits a crime on campus, they are dealt with—as they should be. Overall, though, Rowan doesn’t have too many rules, and of the rules that do exist, most of them are enforced because they contribute to campus safety and security, which is a great thing.
For the most part, campus security understands that kids will be kids. However, if serious issues do occur, the RoPo will certainly crack down. But while Rowan isn't the strictest of campuses, drugs and alcohol are not tolerated in dorm rooms and campus apartments. If you fancy the occasional breaking of a small rule, you will find a comfortable existence at Rowan. And, in general, a student’s individual experience with strictness will depend greatly on the leniency—or lack thereof—of his or her RA.
