3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: It's college their will be issues with campus safety, and sometimes they ruin the fun, but they are just trying to keep us safe. They usually only come into play when someone is being extra loud, drunk, or high.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: just need to be discret

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Campus safety is relatively unhelpful in most situations. However, when actual issues arise, they always put the welfare of the students first. Also, the SCPD station is literally across the street from the main entrance, and they are very involved in student affairs and well-being. The administration is usually understanding, but as it is a Jesuit school, some policies can be seen as conservative. The exception would be visitation: no one really cares who you let stay with you, as long as your roommate is cool with it.

Campus Strictness: There are many strict rules on drug use on campus that I have know. It also feels safe to be on campus.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The school recognizes that young adults are on living on their own for the first time. We are allowed to be independent but the administration ensures our safety by establishing clear guidelines.

As a small Jesuit school, Santa Clara is pretty strict when it comes to drinking and drug use, both on and off campus. Campus Safety officers patrol the dorms and campus pretty consistently and have little hestitation about writing students up for drinking or drug violations. 

CFs, (Community Facilitators, just another word for RA) also patrol the dorms pretty regularly , although it depends on which dorm you're in. CFs in the larger "party" dorms, Swig and Dunne, tend to police more than those in the smaller dorms, but no matter where you are, if you're really loud and obviously drinking, you'll likely get written up. If you're written up for drinking or posession of drugs, the school fines you between $50 and $100, and requires you to do a few hours of community service and take an alcohol safety class.  If you're caught by the police, the fine can be higher and they notify the University, who tack on their own fine.
