4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Campus can be strict, yet there are plenty of opportunities for students to have freedom. Academic dishonest is very strict here however, and there is a no tolerance for it.

Campus Strictness: All policies at the university are put into place in order to keep school integrity and for the safety of its students. I do not believe there are any unfair or unjust policies that are detrimental to the students in any way. We are all allowed to voice our opinions and make our own decisions. We have options for any type of protest that we might feel the need to bring up.

Campus Strictness: I have yet to feel that the campus is strict. Everyone is friendly and nice

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: It is strict in certain areas but they don't really enforce it enough.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: I haven't ever heard of anyone getting in big trouble about alcohol but that is just my personal experience. Attendance completely depends on how your professor chooses to do things. Most of mine just have some way of giving a participation grade every day, so if you never show, up your grade will suffer. Creating student organizations is actually really easy. I think you only need three people and like $15. Really the only thing you have to watch out for is parking, parking citations are the worst, no actually getting your car booted/towed is way worse. They really want everyone to just buy into public transportation here, but that's just not convenient sometimes.

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.
