4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: I have noticed that professors are very strict with the Honor code.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: If it wouldn't be allowed at home, probably wouldn't be allowed here.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: I don't seem to spot them very often. They are silent and rarely seen by my eyes. I don't call them because thank God I have never had a need of them.

4 College Student

Campus Strictness: Academic honor is very strict and consequences are very strict. It's easy to stay out of trouble, but if not, your academic future is in question.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Parking on campus is VERY strict and very regulated. This makes it very difficult to just quickly park and grab something from somewhere. On one occasion, I parked at meter parking for 45 minutes and came back with a "warning ticket" saying it was only 2 hour parking. I haven't had any run ins with campus security or police so I have no opinion on them. Club creation is a pretty simple process, as long as it has X number of members and a member of faculty behind it. I can't think of any unreasonable policies effecting social lives or academic lives.

It's true that the CAs (community advisers) and UNCG Police are sticklers for the rules when it comes to certain things, like speed limits and underage drinking, but it is technically their jobs to be the killjoys. It would be nice if the authority on campus were a little more lenient and sympathetic toward students' desires to have a good time, but if you can't beat 'em, at least be a little smarter about breaking the rules. A great solution to avoiding a lot of these problems is to have your fun off campus. If you will be drinking underage, do it in a place where you're a lot less likely to get busted, like at a trusted friend's house or apartment—just don't drive home afterward. If you want to blast your music and hang out with friends, do it in the car while driving around town, or go to a local club.

Unfortunately, there is no quick way out of getting a speeding or parking ticket or getting written up for being obnoxious in the dorms—that is, of course, except for not doing these things in the first place. Most of the rules at UNCG are in place for the very logical reason of allowing other students to live safely and comfortably.

Facts & Statistics

Students Are Most Likely to Get Caught...
  • Drinking underage
  • Going over the speed limit through campus
  • Making too much noise in the dorms
  • Parking illegally or at an expired meter
Visitation Policies
Guests must be escorted by their hosts at all times during their stay in the dorms. Any guest who is of the opposite gender as the host must be out of the residence hall at the end of visitation hours. However, some buildings have 24-hour visitation policies: Guilford, Jefferson Suites, Lofts on Lee, Mary Foust, North Spencer, Phillips/Hawkins, Spring Garden Apartments, South Spencer, the Quad, and Tower Village.
