“Aggies do not lie, cheat, or steal, or tolerate those who do." This is the A&M honor code that all students must abide by. Every Aggie knows this code and understands that there are serious consequences for breaking it. Professors especially take cheating seriously. Students can also get in trouble for other thing, as well. An example is parking illegally—sometimes it seems like campus police fall from the sky like ninjas to write parking tickets. When it comes to alcohol, it seem like the campus police don't get on your case as much as the RAs. However, since most of the RAs are students, too, they don’t take a terribly strict stance toward drinking.
If you’re 21, it’s okay to have alcohol in your dorm room, but make no mistake: many unfortunate students are caught drinking underage on campus. If you’re underage (which most on-campus residents seem to be), exercise caution—don’t push the limits, and you’ll be less likely to have the whistle blown on you. Campus won’t hunt you down to find out what you’re doing, but if you’re discovered doing something wrong, there are consequences. And it’s going to be something you probably won’t like. But just remember, you'll only find trouble if you’re looking for it.
