Sac State doesn't have too many behavior problems, so campus rules aren't that prevalent. If students saw police busting people every other day, then it would feel strict, but they don't. In fact, it's pretty easy to be lulled into a false sense of security because most students are never really reprimanded for anything. Perhaps teachers need to periodically remind students that this is a college and not a high school when it comes to class conduct, but other than that, nothing.
The school tries to curb alcohol consumption. Staff members pass out fliers and other literature about alcohol use and its effects, and in the same vein, there are presentations on the Library Quad periodically. Alcohol is the substance that gets the most lip service, but the alcohol presence at Sac State is below the national average, and if you don't want to let it be a dominant, excessive part of your life, chances are you won't have much trouble doing so. There are minor issues with parking and with some campus departments. Students complain about wrongfully-issued parking tickets more than they do about any other University Police-related incidents. Employees in the financial services office irritate students by getting attitudes when asked about financial issues, but most Sac State employees are cool if you take a nonconfrontational approach from the beginning.
