Campus Strictness: This is hard because I have heard stories about other schools that were really strict. If you are living the the freshman dorms it depends on your RA. Usually if you are smart you can get away with a lot. What is nice about SLU is you won't get fined or kicked out for one or two offenses. You just have to write a short paper about why what you did was bad and do some community service. Much better than some other schools I have heard about.

After Freshman year you can pretty much do what you want. DPS aren't really out to get you unless you are disrespectful.

Campus Strictness: It's pretty nice because the school does not involve local law enforcement.

College Senior

Campus Strictness: They are strict about quality of work

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: the rules set in place for the campus and students lives are put in place for us to be safe and be able to live on our own. the only problem is if something was to happen around campus, the students would not know right-a-way. it would usually take about a day or two to get an email about the event that took place.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Its okay. Not overbearing. Be smart about what you do and you'll be fine.

The Department of Housing and Residence Life and the Department of Public Safety are the rule enforcers for students. If you are underage, there is no drinking allowed on campus. If you are caught either in the dorms or on campus by DPS, then you have to complete community service hours and take an alcohol education class. Because of the on-campus rules, underage students seek opportunities to drink off campus. However, as long as students are in control and not clearly intoxicated, DPS will let them slide. In the on-campus residence halls, the residence hall advisers enforce the visitation hours of the opposite sex. If students are caught on the floor of the opposite sex, then they also have to complete community service hours. Generally, co-ed groups of students who want to hang out after visitation hours go to neural zones in the recreation rooms or lobbies.

Some professors enforce attendance policies, depending on the class and major. However, most professors put the attendance responsibility on the students. Organizations, majors, and scholarships are strict with their GPA requirements for students, but they give students a semester of probation to improve their grades. Overall, SLU is not unnecessarily strict with students. They are strict enough to keep students safe, but lenient enough that students are satisfied.
