3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: It's important to follow the rules, not mandatory.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: I have no issues because I do not live on campus.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: UNC Chapel Hill is overall pretty lenient and trusting. As far as I know, there is no visitation policy and campus police are helpful and friendly. They even assist in making sure students enjoy themselves by doing things such as blocking off a road in order to allow us to play in the snow. I have also never known anyone to get in trouble due to alcohol or drug use, but that is partly because of the crowd I associate with.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Strictness: School policies did not affect my social life. As long as you do not break the law or cheat (copy test/essay material) school policies will not affect you very much.

Students are well advised before starting their years at Carolina about the dangers and consequences of activities like underage drinking, drug abuse, and honor violations. Underage drinking is taken seriously on campus. If you are caught, however, many RAs and campus police will turn a blind eye if it seems that it is being done in a responsible manner. They are here to protect students, so if a student is being obnoxious, loud, or disruptive to other residents, or if there is a safety concern, they are likely to be harsh on punishment. If you choose to engage in underage drinking, do it quietly, and don't get caught—otherwise you will be facing some steep fines. 

The University is more strict about drug use, such as use of marijuana, cocaine, and ecstasy. Students caught doing this may face academic suspension of a semester and many other consequences that, frankly, aren't worth it. Carolina also takes Honor Court very seriously. The school trusts in its students, and that is taken very seriously here. Students give punishments to other students by means of Honor Court, and these are typically suspensions and failure of a class for things like plagiarism. It is advisable to keep your honor in tact and avoid these consequences.
