3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Sometimes the partying on main street gets a little out of hand.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Rules (especially no underage drinking, no drug use, Honor codes and parking spot rules) are taken pretty seriously which is a great thing.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: Parking policies are probably the most strict but they are also the most frustrating. Swift action is usually taken. Alcohol and other violations are taken seriously when they are discovered but for the most part they are average. Attendance is average because it varies by different professors in terms of its effect on grades but for the most part it is uniformly enforced. One thing that I like is that it is fairly easy to start a new resident student organization.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Their overly strict about parking and noise.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The campus security is strict when it comes to things such as parking but I do not feel like they are strict at all when it comes to underage drinking. It is guaranteed that if you go to any party, at least 70% of the people drinking are under the age of 21. Not good.

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.
