3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: I have nothing good to say about public safety and parking at this school. The public safety officers have refused to update their policies on parking for commuters and overnight parking for commuters and guests. The policies require students to jump through hoops to avoid outrageous tickets.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Have a good relationship with your RA wherever possible. Also, some professors are very strict at the beginning only to weed out the kids who aren't committed to the class.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: I think our school is fairly lenient about most things but then again I am getting older and I think public safety is very understanding that we're in college and some drinking is going to occur. It's all about moderation and just being smart. If you're doing drugs or being stupid and drunk out in public then obviously you should expect you're not going to get away with it. Just be smart and you'll realize it's actually kind of lenient.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Gonna be honest, we don't have a "visitation" system. Pretty much you talk it over with your roommates/suitemates if you have any.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Public safety, RA's and the administration are doing their jobs to keep use safe. As long as you respect them and are not blantly disobeying the rules, they'll work with you. I think its fine that we have strict policies especially with the dorms since thats the place where we all go back to unwind and sleep.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

There are many rules and regulations that students living in the dorms must follow. There is also a long list of things prohibited from the dorm rooms, such as bed risers, extension cords, holiday lights, incense, lava lamps, and weights, among other more obvious items like candles, flammable liquids, and weapons. If any of these things are found in your room, they will be confiscated, and you will be written up. Being written up has heavy consequences because it will also affect your housing status for the following year, so by not obeying the rules, you may lose the opportunity to live on campus. Many punishable offenses are also ones that are illegal, such as smoking marijuana and underage drinking, and getting caught will result in a write-up and attendance at student conduct meetings.

There is a lot of pressure on resident assistants (RAs) because they usually witness violations firsthand and are being counted on to deal with them accordingly, so to do their job honestly and correctly, they sometimes even have to write up their friends. Resident assistants also do random health and safety inspections of dorm rooms to make sure that all residents are obeying the rules and don’t have any prohibited items. In general, the University is very strict about its policies and rules and will deal with them however they see fit, so one piece of advice is to stay out of trouble!
