3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: I don't know a whole lot about how strict the campus is, because I follow the rules. I have read their policies and it seems like they are followed by the student body. However, if an athlete disobeys the rules, or breaks a law, they will not be punished.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: There are crime alert mails sent to students frequently, the school cares about the safety.

4 College Senior

Campus Strictness: I don't actually have much experience testing the limits of the UO's campus policies' strictness, but from what I see on a day-to-day level, things are pretty much just as they should be. If anything, some behaviors should be cracked down on more.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The campus is not strict which is nice but there are several rules that peers in force. (Tobacco free campus)

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: It's a chill campus in general, the school doesn't get in the way of having a great social life. Especially since the town is nested around UO.

The University and Eugene police departments have gone through periods of both relaxed policies and rigid ones, but they seem to have finally found a reasonable medium. Dorm infractions are punished very gently, but some police officers will readily issues citations for MIPs (minors in possession of alcohol) and break up parties. For big parties, police will usually let the crowd leave and just write up the owner or facilitator. Smaller parties aren't always so lucky, and it's not uncommon for underage drinkers to get busted at these.

On the drug side of the issue, authorities are often much calmer with marijuana because they understand its regularity (and it doesn't tend to contribute to large gatherings and riots). Concerning harder substances, however, punishment depends on the individual officer and the atmosphere of the situation. Don't be surprised to hear about strict enforcement, as authorities have stated that they won't tolerate drug abuse on or around campus—but don't be surprised if you can get away with it, either.
