3 College Senior

Administration: They're overly sensitive about noise complaints. Attendance and in-class strictness usually depend on the professor.

4 College Junior

Administration: I've never had a problem with campus strictness. From my understanding, BU only gets involved if someone is needs medical attention when regarding alcohol or drug use. You should be on time for your classes, mostly because the professors respect you and you should (and usually will) respect them in return. BU seems to have a problem with sexual harassment on campus, but they are making a very visible effort to fix this. Tending to that problem unfortunately takes a while because the student body needs to work together with the administration. Regardless, they take those issues pretty seriously.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Playing it smart seems to be the best bet. Stick to your limits, stay far from University buildings when you expect to party, and if things tend to get out of control, make sure you are not in the dorms. Getting caught with drugs (or alcohol, if you are underage) may result in academic probation or removal from housing on campus. What you get away with depends largely on your housing assignment. Rules vary in strictness from dorm to dorm, and RA to RA.

Even if your RA is extremely lenient with all of the students living on the floor, do not expect to be let off completely. Be extra careful early on in the academic year because BU tends to “send a message” to students before things even get rolling.
