4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Our school Is but isn't strict. They just concentrate on the important things the most such as each student staying safe and staying out of trouble by following the rules and laws. Parking sucks and the tickets are expensive. In residence halls security makes rounds. They also have RA's walk around checking for noise violations, drugs, and alcohol.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: A lot of students complain that there is a very strict policy on visitors in the building. Honestly, it makes me feel safe that every visitor is checked in and not allowed in the building without being checked in with somebody who lives in the building.

Campus Strictness: I know of people that have been kicked out of Towson University for drug use so it's best to try to stay away from that. The only problem I have had with administration is about the parking. There is not enough parking for commuter students and too much parking for professors. At any given time, a handful of parking enforcers are trolling around the parking decks. Sometimes they even carelessly block the few available parking spots because they think their job is more important that you going to class.

Campus Strictness: For the most part, if you stay out of trouble you'll be fine, however, if you do end up in trouble they'll probably be a lot of paper work involved

4 College Senior

Campus Strictness: The only problem is lack of availability of core classes.

Depending on what dorm you are in, drinking and socializing on campus frequently takes place. Students drink in their rooms, and sometimes even play beer pong in their rooms, and most often do not get caught. Although Towson police make it clear that students will be penalized if they are caught drinking or smoking on campus, if you are smart about it, you will be fine. Campus police increase their strictness at night but are most present when students are already out for the night.

Even though students drink in their rooms, drugs are taken much more seriously. Many students get caught with alcohol, but their punishments are not nearly as severe as the penalties people with drugs get. Although students get away with having fun in the dorms and breaking some rules, the campus is sometimes overwhelmingly strict about keeping students safe in terms of signing guests in at all hours, even if they are from the dorm next door. Security continues to heighten on campus, and students have faced serious consequences when they’ve been caught with drugs in their rooms.
