Campus Strictness: While underage drinking isn't encouraged on campus, it seems as though public safety and the administration is really only looking out for our safety as long as no harm is being done. They have policies like medical amnesty that allow us to get help without legal consequences if we drink too much. Public safety is also really only concerned with fraternity houses being over-capacity and are very nice if you respect them. In the dorms, unless you are blatantly walking down the hall with a bottle in your hand, you should be fine.

When it comes to academics, attendance is typically only paid attention to in the smaller, discussion based classes. It's your decision if you want to get what you are paying for or not in lectures.

Also, don't cheat. Academic honesty is a strong value we are expected to uphold.

Campus Strictness: Needs improvement all of the policies with no regulations

Campus Strictness: The public officers on campus are really respectful. They're good-natured and helpful. They respond in a timely manner when you need them, and they're always courteous. When it comes to drinking in the dorms, administration doesn't really condone underage drinking, but unless it's in a public place or causing some sort of disturbance, no one is going to say anything. Drinking in general is something that administration just wants students to do responsibly. They aren't going to explicitly stop anyone from drinking because policing something like that is almost impossible. Parking is rough on campus. There are never enough parking spots, so it's pretty hard to find a spot and not get ticketed by University Parking. Visitation in the dorms is pretty lax. You're allowed to have people over, so long as it doesn't pose some sort of disturbance to your neighbors. The school doesn't really have rules for whether or not people can stay over.

Campus Strictness: They aren't involved unless they really need to be, not an overbearing presence

Campus Strictness: People have an easy time doing what they want to do. Rules are mostly up to RAs to uphold.

As long as no one sees, you're set. UR is not the biggest watchdog; they allow students to act on their own and do not impose overly strict regulations for housing, visiting, and the like. There is not a maze of bureaucracy to deal with in administration, and if you do something wrong, it goes through a direct process of discipline. Students are left to their own devices, for the most part, except for fraternities. When it comes to cracking down on drinking at frat houses, there is an inordinate amount of attention given. Beyond the frat houses, you're out from under security's eye.

Little resentment exists between the student body and the authorities. Some fraternities are angry over their maltreatment, but most students do not have a problem or feel that their rights are been impinged upon. They are now even phasing in a non-smoking policy campus-wide for all the dorms, and students have not had an adverse reaction. If a reasonable rule is set in place, no one finds reason to rebel against or disregard it. Overall, people are mostly well behaved, and the school leaves well enough alone.
