Campus Strictness: Open policies on most issues

4 College Student

Campus Strictness: The dorms at UCR are not very strict. They provide the freedom that many students that have just moved out of their parents house desire while also having rules to provide safety for the residents. Although we have many rules against underage drinking and drug use, many residents still are able to acquire and use illegal substances while on the premises. This is because although we have a lot of rules forbidding such substances there are not many people to enforce these rules. Many times RAs do not notice and some even don't bother saying anything to the students. Academically on the other hand there are many rules toward the campus' "Honor Code". Furthermore many of the teachers highly enforce these rules.

Campus Strictness: The campus isn't extremely strict, but cheating is not tolerated. In most schools cheating isn't tolerated but if you're caught here good luck. It's better to study and do your own work.

Campus Strictness: I did not have much interaction with the dorms on campus.

Campus Strictness: Well I believe that this would apply to anyone who isn't doing what they are supposed to be doing. They offer a relatively free space to do what you will with your time and your energy. Those who get into trouble are the ones who really take their opportunities for granted. You get what you put into UCR.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Despite the constant presence of the Riverside police cars that prowl campus, UCR is remarkably lenient. Class regulations vary from professor to professor and usually regard trivialities like eating in class, electronic use, and attendance. Though too many absences can result in expulsion from a particular course, classroom rule-breaking usually affects only participation points, which raise and/or lower grade levels.

Campus-wide rules are typical of what would be expected at a university, with plagiarism and misconduct being the most severe punishable offenses. Naturally, plagiarism is the least tolerated amongst the administration, but otherwise, the staff is reasonably flexible about its policies. Alcohol is prohibited, except for official public events, and even then, a signed permit is required. Any “illegal acts” are best performed off campus and out of sight of the authorities. Just remember that the policies and police are there to provide safety and security, and obeying them will allow UCR life to pass smoothly.
