5 College Freshman

Administration: The policies are really easy to follow and for most of the time, everyone here is pretty lenient about everything.

4 College Student

Administration: I love how Bradley is laid back on certain rules but when it comes to safety there very cautious.

3 College Freshman

Administration: If you have a friend that has been drinking, the Bradley PD will penalize you or your friend. So that's a plus.

4 College Freshman

Administration: They're lenient about things like underage drinking as long as you're not being disrespectful to anyone, but if it becomes a problem, you'll pay the price. Drugs are not okay.

3 College Freshman

Administration: There are a few things that I would change, but overall, not too bad.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Campus police are generally relaxed and friendly. They don't go searching for problems or for people disobeying laws. If students mind their own business, campus police will mind their own, too, for the most part. However, that doesn't mean partiers should take their clothes off and run across the street with a beer in hand. Basically, if someone breaks a law in front of the police, the police aren't afraid to ticket or arrest that person. And don't give them an attitude because they don't respond well to that. While campus police doesn't go looking for trouble, the Illinois State Police's Campus/TAP cops do. They have one function, and that's to find and bust as many parties as they can in a single night. This task force began coming to Bradley several years ago and visits several times a semester. They've handed out thousands of dollars in tickets in one night, so when students hear they're coming, they generally don't drink on campus.

Students generally despise the state police, but Bradley's lack of responsibility when it comes to drinking proves that they have every reason to keep coming. In the past, students have died from pranks and horseplay allegedly associated with drinking. Several athletes have been ticketed, jailed, and suspended from teams because of alcohol-related incidents, too. This campus-wide drinking problem has triggered the administration to take action and crackdown on alcohol, and RAs and police have to be in line. Students also need to watch out for the Parking Department because if a car doesn't have a sticker, the student will get ticketed. The ticket writers walk around campus what seems like 24/7, and they catch almost all of the rule-breakers most of the time.
