3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Not incredibly strict, not incredibly lenient. It's not bad, just okay.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The campus isn't too strict, it's like most other colleges, there are limitations on what you cannot and can do but nothing that will really control how your time is spent

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: I don't think it's a very strict environment. Some of the RA's are chill and more lenient, I've heard of a few people getting written up for illegal activities in their rooms where the police have been involved. But overall, pretty lenient.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The strictness at my school is pretty average. The honor code prevents any forms of cheating and the administration makes sure that it is obeyed by all students.

The campus police is very active around the university and crack down on any drug use or alcohol use in the dorms, as well as any parties being thrown on campus. They are sure to break up anything causing chaos on the weekends.

2 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: There is too much focus on attendance as opposed to actual learning. The parking violations are excessive and unnecessary.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Danielle Todd

View all previous student authors

Over the years, UD has become more involved in its students' recreational activities. They have been awarded numerous grants for the prevention of underage drinking, and they seem to be a bit obsessed at times. If you are smart and careful, you should get along just fine, but alcohol does tend to dull your inhibitions, leading to displays of drunkenness. This can possibly result in a strike and alcohol responsibility classes, or even arrest and expulsion.

There have been complaints that UD Police are so worried about catching underage drinkers that they aren't actually protecting students. UD's main goal with all of these policies is to show students that this school is no longer a party school and they won't tolerate anything that will tarnish their new, serious image. Breaking the rules can have serious consequences, but most people find that if you are responsible and use a little bit of common sense, you can have fun and avoid getting in trouble.
