3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Depending on the situation, school policies can have some affect on students' academic and/or social lives. Athletes are held to higher standards than a typical student, with NCAA ruling. Most students can get away with a lot of different aspects.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: The campus parking is extremely strict which is ridiculous because they only have limited parking

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Mostly, academic strictness is enforced by the instructors themselves. Strictness during social events is relegated mostly during sporting events and Crimson Nights, and in the dorms, the resident advisers are responsible for administering justice. However, because most of the residents are friends with the RAs, they usually get let off easy when they break the rules.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Some of the RA's are okay with students drinking in dorms as long as they don't see or hear it and they aren't bothering anyone. Other will see an empty bottle as decoration or a candle (not lit) and write you up for it. As far as officers on campus I have seen them few times.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: It is a dry campus so there is no alcohol on campus, which is a bust. Although understood, drugs are illegal and they do take it seriously.

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.
