Campus Strictness: The University of Alabama refuses to add gender identity/expression to their non-discrimination policies. Several documented instances of student harassment due to their gender are well-known to administrators, but they refuse to add this simple protection to their policies. UA is the flagship university. Other universities have already included protection for all their students and staff. Wish UA would do the same.

Students are not too worried about the strictness of the UA police, but the Tuscaloosa police are a different story. The UA police make sure the students are safe. They are not very strict. The Tuscaloosa police are harsher on underage drinking and do not tolerate drugs. Along with the Tuscaloosa police, watch out for the ABC (Alcohol Beverage Control).

At certain times of the year, the Tuscaloosa police and the ABC get together and patrol the bars and house parties pretty hard. This is usually around the beginning of the school year. Police are trying to scare away all of the underage students that try to drink in the bars. After a while, the police start to calm down a little, but students recommend continuing to be careful because they are never completely gone. News travels fast around Tuscaloosa, and students usually find out early if the police are out busting the bars. No matter which police you prefer, they both make students feel safe, but watch out for the stricter ones.
