Campus Strictness: The campus strictness is great, it sometimes depends on your RA too. Each RA is different, sometimes the officers are great but little times they are annoying. However, overall everything is just great.

Campus Strictness: It keeps everyone safe and on the right track.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: On campus, the strictness is not that bad. Drinking is not allowed in freshman dorms but they do respect privacy so don't be stupid with it.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: At my school the campus strictness is okay. Here they can be very strict with somethings but on other things they can be less strict.

The University Police and the administration strive to maintain order on campus. Perhaps the biggest focus is underage drinking. Police are out in full force on party nights to track down drunken students and are not afraid to make their presence known. Residence Life is also quite strict with noise and underage drinking in the dorms, and RAs and RDs are on constant watch. Punishment for alcohol violations includes probation for the first offense and expulsion from the University for a second offense. There is also a crackdown on drugs with a zero-tolerance policy in effect—one offense and you are expelled. For these reasons, students who choose to participate in these activities do so at their own risk.

While police are extremely strict about drugs and alcohol, they are a little more lax when it comes to other possible offenses, such as noise violations or parking in the wrong spot. However, these violations may also carry heavy fines and disciplinary hearings if officials feel they are warranted. On the whole, the administration applies the right amount of pressure, as the threat of expulsion or a heavy fine deter most students from blatantly violating the rules. This pressure keeps the students safe and campus in order.
