Campus Strictness: They require you to come to class, and some teachers give you an incentive to come to class such as extra points on exams per unit throughout the semester.

They require you to have a min. GPA in your department of study; and they leave opprotunity for those who have the credentials to be in the honor societies.

Campus Strictness: the rules are simple. they are not asking us to do anything out of the ordinary. most of the rules are common sense.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Overall, the policies on our campus are relaxed. Obviously, no smoking or drinking in the open, but most of the RAs and Police are laid back and don't get on your case. If you're smart about doing risky things, most likely you will get away with it. Most professors and Dorm leaders are trusting of you and will give everyone the benefit of the doubt, until proven otherwise. As far as parking, they are VERY strict. Your car will get towed within the hour of parking in an invalid spot.

Campus Strictness: The campus strictness isn't that strike as long as you obey the laws and don't do anything crazy you will be good.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

The campus strictness at Texas State is pretty relaxed. As long as you aren't doing illegal acts, you won't really feel the pressure of the rules on campus.

Dorms are probably the strictest, but it depends on the dorm that you live in. Curfews are more for your own benefit than anything else, and no one will lock the dormitory door to keep you out (you are paying to live there, after all). Your RAs are pretty lenient, but, again, it depends on the dorm you are living in. Visitation rules tend to be pretty lax, as well. As long as you aren't being loud and disturbing other people, you will more or less be left alone.

Visitation Policies
You can have visitors in your dorm room, but there is no cohabitation of the rooms, meaning you can't have someone stay in your room for an extended period of time who is not on the lease contract. Keep in mind that if you have a guest stay over, you are responsible for your guest's actions, good or bad. All halls have 24-hour visitation, except for Elliott, Jackson, Lantana, Laurel, and Retama; these halls' hours are Monday-Thursday 10 a.m.-12 a.m., Friday 10 a.m.-2 a.m., Saturday 12 p.m.-2 a.m., and Sunday 12 p.m.-12 a.m.
