4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Administration at this school is mainly focused on student safety, and I think they do a great job of balancing strictness and leniency to achieve student safety.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: When it comes to school and classes, the university is very strict. When it comes to non-university things school is lenient or doesn't get involved.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: It can be VERY easy to get into trouble, especially freshman year. Check yourself before you wreck yourself.

Campus Police tend to have a relaxed reign over the student population. As a result, there isn't a sense of strictness on campus. Bar and house parties are the most common places police will be interacting with students. Campus Police will come down on underage drinking and the use of fake IDs. Apart from that, though, students feel free and able to do what they choose.

As long as you use some amount of common sense or discretion, you really won't have any problems with Campus Police or strictness. However, those who decide to drink underage at a loud party will run the chance of getting busted and then fined. Similarly, if you're caught using a fake ID, consequences await you. In terms of academics, the campus is rigid. They follow the `zero tolerance' rule that only allows you one act of academic dishonesty. After being caught, you are expelled, and the offense stays on your academic record. Weigh every option and the potential consequences before deciding to do something potentially illegal.
