4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: They have created a new policy where smoking is banned on campus. However, you will find a couple students here and there disregarding the new rule. Though professors remind them of the policy it seems that they ultimately cannot do anything about it.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: There are very strict rules regarding alcohol and drugs in the dorms, but you can have anyone over at anytime.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: As long as you don't go overboard or do something extremely dangerous or harmful, the campus is pretty easy-going. Police are present on campus, but it's unlikely that they will cause any issues for students in normal situations. The college has some very liberal aspects when it comes to their leniency.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Don't let Mizzou's reputation fool you. RAs take their jobs pretty seriously, and if they catch you doing something wrong, you will get in trouble for it. The most prominent offense is drinking in the dorms. Students can get kicked out of dorms for this offense and could even be suspended from the University. Many first-time offenders are charged a monetary sum and have to take a class on alcohol awareness. Having drugs on campus is a totally different story. Tolerance for drugs is very, very low. RAs can automatically call the CPD (Columbia Police Department) if they catch a student with drugs. 

The CPD has become very strict about drinking and driving, as well as underage drinking, in the past few years. They walk around during home games and pass out citations to underage drinkers. Visitation at dorms is not a big deal. Students can have friends over, just as long as things don't get too loud and rowdy.
