3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Not very strict at all

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: I would rather have rules and policies than to have nothing in place at all. The problem is, someone needs to enforce these policies once they are in place.

College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Strictness isn't awful and as a member of the Residential life program, I think the policies are appropriate.

2 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Campus is very strict, they are always busting people for being too loud, so only a certain number of dorms on campus are safe for parties. Luckily the alcohol policy has lessened since they finally realized that everyone drinks no matter what age. However, they have a gestapo-like honor code where if you are seen or even thought to be cheating they fail you in the course and make you go to their little "court" to testify.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: They let a lot of things go, except for parking.

Trinity is one of the most secure campuses in America, and that safety extends far beyond protection from outside aggressors. The Department of Campus Security actually looks out for kids who might have had too much to drink, but many times they act more as “parental figures” than police officers. The RAs and police officers don’t want to bust every party on campus, because there would be no end to the trials in student court. As long as students don’t try climbing the dorms from one balcony to the other and risk breaking their necks, DCS isn’t likely to interrupt an on-campus party. Social drinking is such a strong part of campus life that authority figures look the other way, for the most part, and spend more time protecting campus from potentially harmful outside elements.

Of course, students who have a record of causing problems and have received multiple warnings from DCS should be aware that some have been expelled before for piling up multiple offenses. Punishment for doing so is not often harsh, but students have been kicked out of school before. If you know that you’re a loud, obnoxious drunk, then try heading to an off-campus party, rather than risk getting yourself and your friends in trouble.
