Campus Strictness: Shenandoah is a respective institue that allows students to be young adults. In the housing/dorms the resident assistances are only allowed to write students up for an offense if there is probably cause. In the event that safety is always first, the administration and university safety is becoming strict about unknown visitors and non Shenandoah students being in dorms and on campus. There is a very lenient and little to no restriction on social lives except underage drinking.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: This is a safe campus; the grounds are regularly patrolled, and the "attitude" of the staff and security are very friendly. The campus maintains an email & text message "alert" system to inform students and staff of security and emergency (e.g., weather) issues.

Shenandoah University doesn't have an extremely strict campus, but the rules are strong enough to keep everybody in line. Most rules come into play when it comes to campus dormitories. A student should never be too loud, smoke, or disturb others in residence halls because this is where a lot of studying takes place. When it comes to breaking residence hall rules, this is where the job of RAs becomes important (e.g., resident assistants). RAs monitor hallways and quads to make sure students are following the rules. They are not always strict, but they do their job if something is out of line.

Attendance to classes can be strict, too, depending on the teacher. Generally, a student should not miss more than 80 percent of classes, which averages to about six to eight classes throughout the semester; if a class meets two times a week, a student shouldn't miss more than two or four classes, and if a class meets only one time a week, a student can usually miss up to two classes. Failure to come to class results in the student dropping the class and receiving an "F."

Facts & Statistics

Students Are Most Likely to Get Caught...
  • Drinking underage
  • Having TVs or music too loud past 10 p.m.
  • Parking in reserved spots or parking lots you need a pass for
  • Smoking illegal drugs or smoking in the dorm rooms
Visitation Policies
Students can have visitors of the same sex in their rooms, but the visitor cannot stay more than three nights. Everybody must respect the privacy of their roommates. If the roommate has an issue with the visitor(s), that may cause conflict. It is always good for roommates to communicate about visitors beforehand.
Did You Know?
While beds may be bunked, the University does not permit lofts.
