2 College Junior

Campus Strictness: It's too strict. I can understand the need to protect the students but it's so strict, the parties on campus are non-existent and if you want to party you're stuck between venturing off campus into a sketchy area.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: They are strict in some aspects, but in others not very strict. It is easy to get away with certain things. As long as the RA's and police are not called no one gets into trouble or has any problems.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The campus has a good balance of strict and lax. Strict enough to keep everyone safe, but relaxed enough to still be fun.

Campus Strictness: Just don't be stupid about it. I know 10 people who have gotten expelled because they were smoking weed in their dorms. Some people have gotten into serious trouble due to drinking in their dorms, it just depends who your RA is. If you're partying off campus you should be fine if the cops come they're not there to cite you or anything they're just there to break up the party because it got too rowdy.

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.
