3 College Sophomore

Administration: The campus is strict on academic policies which makes students honor academic integrity. On the other hand, they understand that we're college students so they are a bit more lenient when it comes to social policies.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: The college seems to take the approach of helping students be safe, rather than being determined to punish students for partying. That being said, underage drinking and large noisy parties will be shut down if caught. Security is always present on campus and will intervene when necessary. I feel safe because of this, rather than annoyed of strictness.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: Security is very good at Wooster, although there is some general discontent on campus with the administration overall.

5 College Freshman

Administration: The school is very lenient in their strictness to violations of policy. We have our own judicial process that varies in severity that a student is to go through if they were to violate the schools policies.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: The administration is great. However, their new party policy does need some fixing but it is still a new process for them so they are still learning what is best.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

At Wooster, the atmosphere is generally not very strict. RAs, administration, and Security & Protective Services are usually pretty lenient as long as you aren’t a person who is constantly causing problems. If a student gets in trouble, it is usually for something alcohol related: underage drinking, walking outside with an open container, or playing drinking games. If you aren't obvious and try to stay out of trouble, you’ll be fine. Security doesn’t go around campus and search for students to give alcohol tickets to.

In 2011, Wooster hired a new director of Security & Protective Services. This director was formerly the Chief of Police for the Wooster Police Department and has served as a patrol officer, detective, and SWAT team member for more than 24 years. Because of this change, students anticipate that Security & Protective Services will change its easy-going ways and begin to crack down on students.
