5 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: We are a liberal arts school in the middle of nowhere pa. They cant be to strict and its awesome.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: The campus is strict with things like drugs, and drinking in the freshman dorms, but people can drink in upperclassman dorms as long as it's not a party and there aren't too many people. If it is a party, the people involved could get in trouble if the party isn't registered. Cheating in classes is obviously not accepted, and while the school wants each professor to put something about attendance in their syllabi, that's usually up to the teacher. Some professors are very strict about attendance, and some don't care very much because in the end it's up to the student to do his or her own work and get to class.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: it's a wet campus so as long as you don't go puking everywhere you 'll be fine

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: It's a wet campus, and therefore unless you have alcohol in the freshman dorms, you will not get in trouble for being under the influence of alcohol or having it in your possession. The school is very understanding. Drug rules are a lot more strict though.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The only things that are strict here are drugs. It is a wet campus and they do not give a s*** about people drinking as long as your not walking around campus with an open container or in a freshman dorm

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Ursinus College was founded in 1869, and a town grew around it, which became known as Collegeville. Because of this, it should come as no surprise that the fire station is actually on the corner of campus, and the police station is across the street from the fire station. But don't worry—there is not much of a Collegeville police presence on campus. However, students will frequently see members of Campus Safety prowling Ursinus on their bikes.

The members of Campus Safety are usually friendly to students and make the environment much more relaxed. This relationship also sort of carries over to parties on campus—while Campus Safety officers may be nearby, they won't break up a party because someone is too loud. Campus Safety officers usually let the students live their lives unless they do something that affects the safety of themselves or others on campus. They are, however, fairly strict on parking. Although students complain that Campus Safety officers can be inconsistent in doling out tickets, the officers try to be as consistent as possible. Students will run the risk of getting a ticket if they've parked illegally. On the whole, however, students generally feel safe and relaxed on the campus.
