3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: I'm not really sure, but it seems like they do what they need to to make sure students are safe.

Campus Strictness: Since, I am an Resident Advisor I am here to enforce university policy. I feel that the campus strictness in areas such as drugs and alcohol are very strict because majority of on campus students are underage and the campus police do what they can to enforce rules to protect them.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: There are some things that the University of Alabama is more strict on than others. For example, UA takes parking very seriously. If you park in the wrong zone, you can easily expect a ticket and after three tickets in one semester they will begin to boot your car at your expense. The administration has a zero tolerance policy for cheating and goes to every length to enforce it. The campus police do their best to crack down on underage drinking and use of drugs but since the campus is so large it still happens.

2 Recent Alumnus

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.

4 College Senior

Campus Strictness: Dishonesty is not tolerated. Cooperation is expected.

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.
