College Freshman

Campus Strictness: ps is okay because they dont actually do anything. if there was an emergency on campus or i had an actual problem im sure not one of them would do anything. they drive around in their suvs, not stopping at stop signs just looking to give out parking tickets. they think they are the NYPD but in all actuality they prob attending the same training camps as a mall cop or an experiences water gun fighter

Campus Strictness: It's a wet campus. They know. Don't be stupid and no one will hassle you about anything! Quiet hours are enforced at 1 pm as parties are thrown in the residential quads.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: Just like anything in life there are always rules. If you are not adhering to these rules there will be consequences. That being said this is a college campus and there are opportunities to break some of these rules but you will have to deal with the consequences. At the end of the day make smart decisions and be prepared for what is coming.

Campus Strictness: I mean honestly it's not the worst campus. But that is also a down fall. The school will not do anything when it comes to hazing and sexual assault if it interferes with their agenda.

Campus Strictness: I don't mind it because they're keeping us safe with all the drinking and partying, but the parking tickets and restrictions are absurd.

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!
