Administration: Kicking fraternities and sororities off campus does not solve the problem of underage drinking or drug use. It just encourages students to find other places to do these things.

4 College Junior

Administration: Strictness is about right. College students are adults.

3 College Freshman

Administration: It's not that hard to get caught but it's pretty hard to get in trouble. An RA will only write you up for drinking or smoking in the dorms if you're acting like you're trying to get caught. Even if they make you open the door, if they don't actually see a bottle they'll probably let it slide the first time. However the honor code and sexual assault are both taken very seriously at Emory.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

In general, Emory is not overly strict. Being a presitigious and exclusive school, the University holds its students to a high standard and does not feel the need to excessively monitor their behaviors. Unless you are engaging in obviously illegal behaviors in public or blatantly cheating, it is unlikely you will ever have any trouble with the faculty and or administration. While the campus police are often seen on and around campus, they seem to watch from a distance with the occasional traffic violation as an exception. Simply put, if you are smart about the things you do, you will not find yourself in trouble.

When you do get caught for various violations, there are different ways the school goes about it. Often you will have to meet with a faculty member involved with the student conduct counsel or attend a conduct counsel hearing comprised of peers who will listen to your side of the story and determine an outcome based on what they believe is fair. This is a unique way of going about things, and it is relieving to have peers who understand the situation as opposed to an older, out-of-touch staff member who is unable to relate.
