Administration: There may be times when a teacher will scold you for walking into class just a few minutes late, and every police officer is strict about parking and will give you another ticket even if you have already gotten one in that 24 hour period

Administration: As long as you obey the rules/laws there is no problem. I don't feel there is an over "strictness" at Ferris.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Overall, the campus is neither very strict, nor very lenient. The strictness lingers somewhere in the middle, with some issues being more addressed and others not as much. The strictest rules come with the parking and the issuance of tickets. Other strict rules are in place regarding alcohol in dorms, underage drinking, and the use of drugs. Some of the more lenient rules are regarding new student organizations, honor code, noise violations, and visitation in the dorms. The rules regarding attendance vary depending on the teacher. Some teachers' policies are much stricter, where missing one class can lower your grade immensely. The best way to figure out which teachers have the stricter policies is to talk with students in the same program who have had the teachers in the past.

The police are seen as pretty tolerant and as being friendly and easy to get along with if you respect them. However, they will be there to break up anything if a situation occurs, leading some people to believe they are just there to break up the fun. RAs are pretty fair, too. They will talk to students in the dorm if there is a problem and will give warnings first. They are also there to talk if a student needs help and they know who to send students to regarding a problem. The administration is fairly flexible. They are helpful if needed about any situation. As long as a student approaches with respect and the willingness to listen, they are there to help.
