3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Living in towers is super strict!!! You can't re-enter the dorms past 9 at night without your student id, noise violations are a big deal, having visitors even from a different dorm is such a process to get approved, you can't have the opposite sex stay overnight.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Sometimes if felt as though people were getting yelled at for no reason instead of for safety and the protection of the community.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: I never feel unsafe, but definitely feel liberated to do what I want to do.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Campus is less strict and is a fun place to be

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: We have bag check at night before you can enter the dorm. Also if you are intoxicated they keep you until a friend of roommate can get you and look after you. You also get warnings.

The police presence on campus is very strong, but not completely overwhelming to students. If anything, it gives the students a sense of security knowing that there is usually an officer somewhere in the vicinity. Campus police aren't considered extremely strict, but do they take their stand on some issues. Underage drinking on campus is not something that students want to get caught going-it will result in a citation and possible notification of parents. Other things taken seriously on campus are parking violations. Parking is extremely limited, so those parking without proper permits are given tickets until their vehicle is moved. Dorm violations can also result in probation from student events, removal from the dorm, or even expulsion.

The local police presence is just as strong as the campus police, as they pretty much share duties. While both police forces are very friendly, local police are a little more strict than campus police. It is usually the local police that watch over parties, and they make sure things do not get out of hand. Students usually won't get in trouble for something off campus unless they go looking for it. Neither police force goes out of their way to bust students or cause trouble, but they will go through with their duty and take care of any problems they see fit. What students should definitely avoid doing is drinking or drugs in the dorm. Being caught for either can result in removal from the dorms, or even expulsion, as well as counseling programs and parent notification. Other than that, students are mostly able to come and go as they please, as long as they don't go out of their way to make trouble.
