Campus Strictness: Our campus is strict against drugs and underage drinking. U of O is a alcohol free campus and first time offenders gets a letter sent home and a warning. Second time offenders get fined and third timers get sent home. It is serious if you get caught, so in other words just don't do it.

Campus Strictness: Policy - Strictness – University of the Ozarks is placed in a dry county. There is a zero tolerance drug and alcohol policy. Boys have to be out of a girl's room at midnight on the weekdays and two a.m. on the weekends in the all girls dorm. Attendance to class is accounted for in the grade you get for a class.

Campus Strictness: Law Abiding but Not Too Restricting – The University of the Ozarks is not too strict of a school. The rules about drinking and drug usage are very serious and students can be suspended or expelled for breaking these rules too many times, but good students tend to get second chances on their first mishaps. There is a committee that handles all rule breaking that students do, deciding the punishments for the students.

Every campus has strict rules and regulations to follow, but U of O's campus is pretty lenient, as long as a student is not consistently breaking University policy. The University of the Ozarks has a student handbook called “The Talon.” The strictest rules on campus are about illegal substances in students’ dorm rooms, visitation hours with the opposite sex in coed dorms, cheating, refusing to attend mandatory hall meetings, incorrect dorm check-out procedures, and improper use of email. All RAs are supposed to report and write up all students who break the school’s policy.

For the most part, there are not a lot of problems on campus, unless it is a major violation. As long as a student does not publicly disobey the rules, the RA will never know the student committed the action. Basically, the “Don’t ask, don’t tell” unspoken rule is a big part of how students handle not getting in trouble with the authorities on campus. The RAs are very good at maintaining a safe, clean environment for their fellow students. Though they do their job, the RAs are also very lax about some of their duties. When students have issues that involve the administration’s help in sorting them out, the administration does its best to ensure the students’ needs are met first and in an effective manner.

Facts & Statistics

Visitation Policies
The public areas of residence halls are open to the opposite sex during a specific set of hours defined in a hall's living plan. If 75 percent of hall residents vote in favor of a proposed change, visitation hours may be shortened or lengthened. Through this policy, students are given a voice in how late people can visit their rooms or hall.
Did You Know?
  • The strictness of the residence hall depends on how controlling the resident adviser is.
  • If vandalism is done to the dorms and no one comes forward to admit to the crime, the whole residence hall can be fined.
  • The only way an authority on campus can thoroughly search a student's room is if there is a high suspicion of drugs or alcohol usage from that student.
  • If the residence hall bathrooms are not being maintained in a clean manner by the students, resident advisers can punish the floor or the entire hall by making them personally clean the bathrooms. The people that do not show up for the punishment are fined.
  • Students have been fined for not checking out of a dorm properly before breaks and before leaving for the summer.
