5 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Every school has rules. The University of Utah follows rules that are set in place. If you get caught breaking a rule expect to get into trouble, but they don't want to have to get you in trouble!

Campus Strictness: Its Utah... enough said? No, well here is a little about the strictness of the U. Its a Dry campus... means no alcohol on campus what so ever and it would be made a big issue of if you are caught. Drugs have no place on campus due to the negative criminal activity that they would bring and the school actually realizes that.

Campus Strictness: It's a dry campus, but there are still parties that happen. However, its policies will make you paranoid about getting kicked out of the dorms.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The U is a dry campus so they can be strict about alcohol, but it doesn't stop the Greek Row from going hard across the street where they are technically "off campus". As for student involvement in starting demonstrations and putting together groups is fairly easy, the U is always willing to get people into things they love and are passionate about.

College Junior

Campus Strictness: I have no idea about their strictness

The U has a strict zero-tolerance policy toward alcohol on campus and in the dorms. But because most alcohol-related incidents are simply alcohol-related and don’t result in vandalism, sexual assault, theft, or other crimes, cops and U administrators are content to look the other way most of the time. But heaven help you if your drunkenness leads you to make a public nuisance of yourself, or you even just bother your neighbors; cops pay a lot of attention to parties on Greek Row, where complaints from the neighbors about noisy parties have created an atmosphere of distrust and resentment.

When it comes to campus strictness, the so-called “Parking Nazis” are at the top of the list of villains. If you go 10 seconds over on your parking meter or your parking pass is not visible, expect a ticket. If it’s your third unpaid ticket, expect to be booted.
