Campus Strictness: Campus really isn't super strict. Alcohol is a big focus but it's not brought on campus that often and I have never lived in a dorm.

Sleeping over at them is lenient unless it is finals week.

parking is strict...I've gotten two tickets.

Attendance depends on the class entirely.

Drug use can't be monitored easily, because its pretty much all study drugs.

Campus Strictness: They don't really care most times as long as you don't bother people or bring stuff out in the open

Campus Strictness: At such a large school, most rules regarding student life are not super strictly enforced. Rules relating to dorm life depend heavily on your RA.

It is not a good idea to drink or do drugs openly on campus, or at least not outside. Drinking is technically not allowed in dorms on campus, nor are drugs allowed in private dorms (alcohol is allowed in some private dorms), but students definitely both drink and do drugs in their dorm rooms. Generally, though, the police are only called if the RAs decide to call them.

At the football games, be sure not to carry alcohol in your purse or in your boots, because many students are searched and patted down. Many people get drunk prior to the football game at a tailgate party or house party, and then they just arrive at the game drunk. The thing that UT is known to be most strict about is parking, and UTPD loves to write parking tickets.
